'Overwatch' Competitive Play mode launches on PCs today

Want to prove to the world that you’re a top-notch Overwatch player? You now have your chance. After a quick public beta test, Blizzard is launching the team shooter’s Competitive Play mode on PCs. As before, this isn’t just about participating in seasonal play. The mode invokes sudden death rounds for tie games, modifies the point system and stiffens penalties for bad behavior (such as ragequitting a match before it’s over). In essence, it’s all about keeping the game and its players as fair as possible.

Unfortunately, console gamers will have to be patient. Competitive Play won’t reach the PS4 or Xbox One until sometime next week (that is, the first full week of July). Blizzard is vowing to close the gap between PC and console updates in the future, but that’s not much solace if you’re determined to earn some bragging rights as quickly as possible.
