From Blizzard:

A new game mode, Deathmatch, is coming soon to the Overwatch Arcade and is currently available on the PTR. Deathmatch is a simple game mode with the goal of seeing which player/team can get the most kills and will include a new scoreboard to keep track of the number of kills.

Deathmatch will include two modes and a new map:

In "Free-For-All", players will play 1v7 to see who can get to 20 total kills the fastest.

Team Deathmatch
In "Team Deathmatch" mode, players will play 6v6 with the winning team reaching 30 kills first. Mercy resurrections will take kills away from the other team's kill count.

New Deathmatch Map
Several maps have been modified to accommodate the new death match mode. Additionally, we are introducing a new map, Ch√Ęteau Guillard, specifically for the Deathmatch game mode.
