The developer behind Overwatch 2, Blizzard Entertainment, just launched its “official (but non-canon) Overwatch 2 dating sim,” Loverwatch – Love Never Dies. This basically consists of a free browser game which allows you to go on a date with a few of the most popular characters in Overwatch 2, Genji and Mercy. Hanzo quite literally plays Cupid.
Loverwatch isn’t actually available within Overwatch 2, but the game can be accessed through a dedicated website, although the experience currently isn’t “supported on most non-desktop, web-based browsers and devices.”
The game is generally reminiscent of traditional dating simulators and the characters can be wined and dined in various locations based on the maps in Overwatch 2. Players are given tips from Hanzo at different points throughout the game on how to win the hearts of either Genji or Mercy. There’s even a secret ending which can be unlocked based on how the characters are treated.
Blizzard is currently offering a Cupid's Kiss Highlight Intro and Player Title which can be added to your Battle.net account. The former is actually part of a bundle which is available for purchase in Overwatch 2, but you can earn the Highlight Intro for free through Loverwatch along with a discount on the bundle, something which also includes a Cupid Hanzo Skin.
In case you’re wondering, when it comes to being an “official (but non-canon) Overwatch 2” story, the developer explains that “basically, there are parts of the Overwatch story that are real and other parts that are hypothetical.” Blizzard goes on to describe how “this dating sim is one of those hypothetical, non-canon stories, like if Wrecking Ball and Tracer talk about how they both love cheeseburgers before a PvP match. Tracer and Wrecking Ball may love cheeseburgers. They’ve just never met officially and actually had that conversation.”
Love may never die, but Loverwatch won’t be around forever. The dating simulator will be available until February 28, 2023.
