Love is in the air for Valentine's Day
02/14/2023 - Overwatch 2 celebrates the ultimate Valentine's Day! Take part in a new arcade brawl, win new cosmetic extras in special event challenges, and become the perfect partner for Genji or Mercy in a new dating sim adventure.
With LoverWatch - Love Does Not Die, you can try out a new interactive gaming experience in the Overwatch universe for the first time. LoverWatch is a dating simulation in short format and takes place outside the actual story of Overwatch. Join Genji or Mercy in romantic locations based on your favorite maps from Overwatch. Earn exclusive player titles that express your devotion, and look forward to inside jokes, Easter Eggs, and a secret ending if you and your date have chemistry.
Check out LoverWatch today to earn free rewards, including Hanzo's highlight intro Cupid's Kiss and sweet player titles that will land on your account with an upcoming patch. The new highlight intro is also available as part of a bundle in the store. Those who have already unlocked it will get a discount on the package. LoverWatch is playable on LoverWatch.gg until February 28 and is optimized for the most popular desktop browsers. The game is not available on most other browsers and devices.
Blinded by love for geometry
For romantic banter in PvP, check out the new Love for Geometry brawl. In this variant of team deathmatch, two teams of four Amor Hanzos each compete against each other. Who do you think will come out on top in love?
Best of all, the Scatter Arrow, one of Hanzo's earlier abilities, is also in the mix! It bounces, splits, and jumps in different directions. New players can experience Hanzo's love for geometry without worry in this limited-time mode!
And when you use Hanzo's ultimate ability, Dragon Strike, you're in for a surprise that's sure to please!
A Heart for Cupid Hanzo
During the limited-time event, the brand-new legendary skin Cupid for Hanzo will be available in the store. Our team of artists was inspired by various depictions of the ancient deity and had a lot of fun with the challenge of creating romantic, divine, sweet and of course ... heroic aspects in one skin.
Cupid Hanzo enchants you with heart motifs on his quiver and shoes, charms you while jumping with fluttering wings and steals your hearts with new visual arrow effects and fun sounds.
The Ultimate Valentine's Day event starts today. Log in right now to unlock a free player icon (Cupid) and a spell for Junkrat. Also, in keeping with the occasion, there are new rewarding challenges that can be completed with any hero in any game mode. Sprays, spells, emotes and more await you! Complete all six challenges to earn the epic Skin Bitrate for Lúcio.
Happy Valentine's Day! We love you guys and hope you enjoy the event.
