It's that wonderful time of year again when corporations dream up ways to make single folks feel lonely and those in relationships inadequate and thus more likely to part with their hard-earned cash. Case in point, Valentine's Day is coming to Overwatch 2 early, on 13th February, with the implementation of Loverwatch.

A strictly non-canon text-based dating sim, Loverwatch will allow players to date either heal-queen Mercy or cyber-assassin Genji, assisted by a Hanzo dressed as Cupid. What more could you want? If your answer was a special 4 vs 4 game mode in which everyone plays as Hanzo, well, that's coming too, it's called the Ultimate Valentines Event and will run until 28th February.

In addition, Season 3 of Overwatch 2 is introducing a new Control map, Antarctica, and the requisite cosmetics and skins for players to work towards, with the theme this time around being Asian mythology, with outfits inspired by gods such as Amaterasu.

Will you be dating either, or both, Mercy and Genji? Hit us with your best pickup line in the comments section below.
