Overwatch 2 has been taking a web page out of Fortnite’s e book recently, more and more making cross-cultural, in-game collaborations a part of its repertoire. We’ve already seen crossovers with the widespread Shonen Bounce anime One Punch Man, WWE superstar John Cena, and a Blizzard in-house collaboration with Diablo IV. Now, the free-to-play hero shooter is setting its sights on a music collaboration with the favored Okay-pop lady group LE SSERAFIM.

On October 18, Blizzard introduced Overwatch 2’s first music collaboration, which can see a customized recreation mode and hero skins impressed by Okay-pop stars LE SSERAFIM seem within the shooter on November 1. LE SSERAFIM is the five-member lady group behind widespread songs like “FEARLESS” and “ANTIFRAGILE.” The collab will see a LE SSERAFIM-inspired customized recreation mode and objects like hero skins coming to Overwatch 2 on November 1. However Blizzard isn’t simply sprinkling some LE SSERAFIM into OW2’s in-game retailer; the hero shooter may also be featured within the music video of LE SSERAFIM’s upcoming single “Excellent Night time” which debuts on October 26 at 9 pm PDT. You’ll be able to see one of many members (don’t ask me who) sporting D.Va’s headphones of their “Perfect Night” concept trailer video so we will not less than take delight in figuring out that they’ve good style in heroes.


Why would Overwatch 2 collaborate with LE SSERAFIM, you would possibly ask? Properly, after they shaped in 2022—the identical 12 months as OW2—the lady group boldly proclaimed that they’d stand on the pinnacle of their musical style, and their title is an anagram for “I’m fearless,” so their spirit matches the sport’s entire aggressive drive. Plus, the group has 8.9 million listeners on Spotify and over 6.5 million followers on Instagram. The prospect of reaching all these folks most likely has one thing to do with why Blizzard want to have the group for its first in-game music collaboration.

“We’re extraordinarily excited to be working with LE SSERAFIM for our recreation’s first musical artist collaboration,” Overwatch basic supervisor Walter Kong wrote in a press launch. “Just like the heroes of Overwatch, the LE SSERAFIM members are superb as people, however unstoppable after they come collectively.”

LE SSERAFIM may also carry out at BlizzCon on November 4, taking part in their new single, “Excellent Night time,” and different tunes.
