Overwatch 2 embraces the inevitable with a K-pop collaboration

It’s finally happened: Overwatch 2 is teaming up with K-pop group Le Sserafim, something that seemed like it was always going to happen.

Ever since Riot Games created League of Legends’ virtual K-pop group K/DA, it seemed only a matter of time before Overwatch would do something similar. It may have taken five years and a whole sequel, but as the official Overwatch account revealed, a collaboration with relatively new K-pop group Le Sserafim is on the way. The South Korean girl group only debuted in 2022 and is known for titles like Antigragile and Unforgiven. Next week, on October 26th, the music video for their next song Perfect Night will be released in Overwatch 2 itself.

Le Sserafim has already released a teaser for the music video, seen above, in which they don some unique versions of DVA headphones. According to a Blizzard blog post, the collaboration will also include a game mode inspired by “Le Sserafim” and exclusive in-game items, including skins for legendary heroes. Details will be announced on Monday, October 30th, with in-game content going live on November 1st.” So for now, you’ll have to wait a bit to see how the collaboration will work out.

The blog post also noted that Le Sserafim will also be appearing at Blizzcon on November 4th for a “special performance,” which will include upcoming single “Perfect Night.”

Since the release of Overwatch 2, the hero shooter has seen a few collaborations, the first being with, of all people, One Punch Man and more recently a one-hour collaboration with Diablo 4. Obviously, this upcoming crossover with Le Sserafim Although a small change, conveyed but definitely a clear idea of ​​what kind of audience Blizzard wants to attract.
