Overwatch gets into the Valentine’s Day spirit with LoverWatch

Love never dies.

Love blooms eternal be it on or off the battlefield. Not one to be left behind in the official dating sim spin-offs, Blizzard has released LoverWatch: Love Never Dies. However, just how deep can a free-to-play browser-based dating sim be?

Blizzard releases an official Overwatch dating sim

Announced earlier today via the official Overwatch Twitter account, LoverWatch caught audiences totally unprepared. Filling the shoes of a faceless protagonist, players embark on a quest to find love under the tutelage of a very suspicious-looking Cupid.

There are only two romance options available in the forms of Mercy and Genji. Completing a series of dates and reaching the end rewards players with icons, titles, and more to use in Overwatch 2. Coupled with some heavy-handed marketing of the Hanzo Cupid skin and some cringy dialogue, this isn't a dating sim to write home about. Then again, it's free, so there's a limit to how much complaining can be done.

Considering how much questionable "fan-art" has been made featuring Overwatch characters since the title was first revealed years ago, it's a little surprising that it took Blizzard so long to dip its toes into this genre. Perhaps they needed some courage after seeing Dead by Daylight's efforts last year. That and copious amounts of time, because nothing Overwatch related comes in a timely fashion, if at all.
