#Blizzard Entertainment recently released two new kill-only modes in “#Overwatch.” The modes will be a free-for-all Deathmatch and a Team Deathmatch. The modes are available for testing on the game’s Public Test Region, which is exclusive to Windows PC. There will also be new maps added to the game. The updates are expected to hit the full game soon.

‘Overwatch’ free-for-all Deathmatch

According to a report from Forbes, in the free-for-all Deathmatch mode, players will face seven opponents. Each of the players will try to get as many kills possible. The first player who gets 20 points will win the game. The top four players of the game will get the chance to earn points through an arcade loot box.

Players can earn points by killing their opponents. But if a player kills himself in the game, a point will be deducted.

‘Overwatch’ Team Deathmatch

In the upcoming Team Deathmatch mode, players will form a team consists of six characters. The first team that will reach 30 points will win the game. Players that will use mercy's resurrection ability will take kills away from the other team's kill count.

‘Overwatch’ new map

Deathmatch mode will use a series of modified versions [VIDEO] of maps that are already in “Overwatch” as well as the brand new Chateau Guillard map. The new map is located near Annecy in south-eastern France, which is the Widowmaker’s family estate. The upcoming map is like a maze of corridors, staircases and open areas. The new map would be very challenging to most of the players.

Players should fight through Chateau Guillard’s cramped basements and alongside steep drop-offs. There are also some jump pads on the new map, which will allow the players to jump high into the air. This move allows the players to navigate the Chateau Guillard maze-like map in numerous ways.

‘Overwatch’ hero Genji is the all-time favorite in Quick Play

On the other hand, when it comes to playing time in Quick Play, the “Overwatch” hero #Genji is the all-time favorite. According to “Overwatch” game director, Jeff Kaplan, Genji is the top pick in Quick Play matches between August 2 and August 9, 2017.

But Kaplan said that this does not mean that Genji is the strongest of them all and it does not exactly measure the hero's strength in “Overwatch.” Based on the game’s statistics, Genji is followed by (from top to bottom) Doomfist, Hanzo, McCree, Soldier, Mercy, Widowmaker, Junkrat, D.Va, Pharah, Tracer, Ana, Reaper, Lucio, and Zenyatta. The other does not belong on the top 15 most used heroes in Quick Play.
