Love blossoms forever, be it on or off the battlefield. Not left behind in the official dating sim spin-offs, Blizzard has released LoverWatch: Love Never Dies. But how extensive 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 the audience completely off guard. Players will step into the footsteps of a faceless protagonist and embark on a quest for love under the guidance of a very suspicious-looking cupid.

There are only two romantic options in the form of Mercy and Genji. Completing a series of dates and reaching the end will reward players with icons, titles, and more to use in Overwatch 2. Coupled with some persistent marketing of the Hanzo Cupid skin and some off-putting dialogue, this isn’t a dating sim to write home about. On the other hand, it’s free, so there’s a limit to how much can complain.
Considering how much questionable “fan art” has been done with Overwatch characters since the title was first revealed years ago, it’s a bit surprising that Blizzard has taken so long to delve into the genre. Maybe they needed some courage after seeing Dead by Daylight’s efforts last year. That and plenty of time, because nothing Overwatch-related comes in time, if ever.
