The Overwatch team have added a new competitive game mode to the Overwatch Arcade called Competitive Open Queue. The mode allows players to play competitive games with no role lock or hero pools similar to how the game was structured before the August 3rd, 2019 patch. Players can still earn SR to unlock golden weapons for heroes as well as obtain a unique spray and icon for completing placement matches.
The mode will last until May 12th, so players have four weeks to try the mode out and relive a pre-role lock world.
This mode has come within patch 1.47 which also includes the new damage hero Echo. For a full list of the patch notes, click here.
