Overwatch Arcade Mode Heading to Custom Games
1v1 your friends (soon).
Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch will be receiving Arcade Mode in Custom Games soon. Game director Jeff Kaplan confirmed the same on the official forums but didn’t explicitly say which modes would be coming to Custom Games. That being said, 1v1 Duels have been confirmed.
The Arcade is a new addition to Overwatch, currently available in the PTR. It includes a whole bunch of modes including 1v1 Mystery Duel wherein two players are randomly assigned the same hero and must do battle; 3v3 Elimination which pits teams of three against each other with heroes remaining set during rounds; Mystery Heroes, a 6v6 Brawl where heroes are randomly assigned; No Limits, which allows hero stacking like in the current Quick Play mode; and Brawls, a rotation of past Brawls with different rule-sets.
Thus far, the Arcade has net quite the positive reception from players and will likely arrive in the live version before 2016 ends. What are your thoughts on Custom Games with some of these modes? Let us know below.
