Overwatch 2 players will have the opportunity to date either Mercy or Genji in a new mini Valentine event that even brings back Hanzo’s old Scatter Arrow ability.

The Overwatch Valentine’s event is shaping up to be one of the most creative yet thanks to a crazy new online dating sim where players can romance the game’s heroes.

The non-canon ‘Loverwatch – Love Never Dies’ can be played on Loverwatch.gg. Users can travel to iconic OW2 maps where their romantic partner and discover new Easter Eggs, titles and more.

By playing, users can unlock a Hanzo’s Cupid’s Kiss highlight intro and other goodies that will be added in a later patch. But that’s not all. This event also has a brand new arcade game mode.

Love of Geometry mode brings back Scatter Arrow

The Valentine event also comes with a special game mode called Love of Geometry, which pits players in a team death match brawl.

In this mode, which features teams of Hanzos, Scatter Arrow makes its return to Overwatch since the ability was replaced with Storm Arrow back in the first game.

Plus, Hanzo’s Dragon Strike ultimate has a special surprise for players in this mode – something the devs say fans will “love.”
