‘Loverwatch’ is the Overwatch 2 dating sim you didn’t know you needed

If you love Overwatch, you need to know how to play Loverwatch this Valentine’s Day. Unbelievably Blizzard has made a free dating sim style game for Overwatch fans to thank Mercy for all the heals or finally get Genji to commit, not to the objective, but to love. It won't get you to Grandmaster rank but it might just make you feel warm and mushy inside. 

Completing the game (which doesn’t take long) will even earn you some rewards to use in Overwatch 2. Remember, heroes may never die but they do have feelings, so be nice.

Note: Having seen pretty much everything the game has to offer for research purposes (of course), there is nothing creepy or NSFW in it, so don't worry!
