Console players also finally get a report system

With the latest patch for Overwatch Blizzard is adding 2 New Modes to the multiplayer game: Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. The former will be a free-for-all 8 player game mode while the latter will have the more expected 6-v-6 players battling over who can reach 20 kills and 30 kills first, respectively. Team Deathmatch is different in that if a player is resurrected, the killer loses the point for the kill.

The two modes will be playable on most of the existing maps as well as the new map called Château Guillard, which is Widowmaker’s family estate.

Speaking of Widowmaker, this patch also brings a few balance changes to the cold-blooded sniper, as well as Roadhog, Orisa and Junkrat.

"Widowmaker is extremely powerful in the right hands, but her abilities often felt a little weak," the patch notes. "The Grappling Hook cooldown reduction means she is more likely to have it available when she needs to escape. Venom Mine is intended to be an early warning system, uncovering enemies that are attempting to flank her or her team. With this change, she can see enemies when they trigger the mine, even if they're on the other side of a wall."

Playstation 4 and Xbox One players will be happy to see that this patch added a much requested Report System that was already available in the PC version of the game.
