Loverwatch Dating Sim (Feb. 13-28) & Ultimate Valentine's Event (Feb. 14-28)

Can you feel the love? Our Ultimate Valentine event kicks off on Valentine's Day this year with a Hanzo 4v4 Limited Time Mode and Support-themed challenges that can net you two earnable epic skins, among other rewards. In another first for Overwatch 2, don't miss out on the Loverwatch dating simulator, which launches on February 13! Loverwatch is a non-canon text-based dating sim where players will choose between two potential dating paths: Mercy or Genji. Players will be presented with dialogue options to interact with that hero and will be assisted by Cupid (who looks suspiciously like Hanzo). Unlock the secret ending, and you'll be rewarded with a themed POTG Highlight! Once live, Loverwatch will be accessible at https://www.Loverwatch.gg and available on web clients only. The experience will be playable until February 28 in Korean, Japanese, Spanish, German, French, and English. The full playthrough lasts roughly 30 minutes.

We're excited to announce that we've been working with Japanese Anime "One-Punch Man" on our first-ever major IP collaboration for Overwatch 2 to bring One-Punch Man skins and cosmetics to the game this season! Together we've created a collection of cosmetics from the beloved anime, including Saitama skin for Doomfist. We'll reveal each item before they drop on March 7, with one being a Legendary skin that's earnable via themed challenges.
