Ultimate Valentine is the first event players can get their hands on in Season 3, as it’s scheduled to start on Valentine’s Day, February 14th. When it goes live, it will introduce a new Hanzo-only 4v4 Team Deathmatch mode called Love of Geometry, complete with the return of the Scatter Arrow ability and the Cupid Hanzo skin. Players can also purchase a Cupid Hanzo Bundle, which includes the skin and various themed cosmetics. Completing Ultimate Valentine’s six new “Support Your Support” challenges will reward fans with the Bitrate Lucio skin, and players can also receive a Cupid player icon and Junkrat voice line just for logging in.
However, the most interesting part of the event is what is not in Overwatch 2 itself. To accompany Ultimate Valentine, developer Blizzard created Loverwatch: Love Never Dies, a text-based dating simulator where players can talk to Genji or Mercy and date while being assisted by Cupid Hanzo. In particular, Loverwatch is now playable since the developers released it a day before the arrival of the full Ultimate Valentine update.
In this quick guide, we’ll go over everything you need to know about Loverwatch, including how to play it, the devices you can play it on, and the Overwatch 2 rewards you can earn as you progress through the dating simulator.
Overwatch 2: How to Play Loverwatch Dating Sim
To play loverwatch dating simulator, You just have to go Loverwatch.gg in a desktop web browser. Once you’ve done that, you can start the mini-game by clicking the “Play” button. Note that Loverwatch supports six languages including Korean, Japanese, Spanish, German, French and English. As such, most players should have no trouble engaging with Loverwatch’s text-based gameplay. You can change the language of the game in the settings menu.
Since Loverwatch was developed with desktop web browsers in mind, we do not recommend playing the game on mobile devices. It probably won’t work at all if you do, or at least it won’t be as smooth and responsive as it is on a desktop PC.
Overwatch 2 Loverwatch: Rewards
As fans play through Loverwatch, they have multiple opportunities to earn special in-game rewards for full Overwatch 2 play. This mainly includes the titles Genji’s Peace and Mercy’s Angel, which can be seen by other players next to your name, but there is also a special Cupid’s Kiss highlight intro for Hanzo, which can also be unlocked in Loverwatch.
In order to get the highlight intro, players need to understand the secret ending of Loverwatch. This involves successfully wooing both Genji and Mercy, which is accomplished by choosing the right dialogue options. Alternatively, players can get the highlight intro by purchasing the Cupid Hanzo bundle (the price of the bundle is reduced if the Loverwatch intro is earned).
Make sure you log in to the Loverwatch website with your Blizzard account, which can be done in the top right corner of the page. You must do this in order to link your Loverwatch progress to your Overwatch 2 account, which allows your in-game rewards to be unlocked.
Overwatch 2 season 3 is here and the game as a whole is now available on Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. It’s probably one of the The best Xbox shooters available, and since it’s free to play, it doesn’t cost anything to try it. Alternatively, there’s the Overwatch 2: Ultimate Battle Pass Bundle, which includes the Premium Battle Pass, 20 Battle Pass levels, and 2,000 Overwatch Coins for $30.
