Overwatch 2 is following Fortnite’s footsteps and holding its first-ever musical collaboration, this one with K-Pop group Le Sserafim.
Blizzard announced the collaboration with the five-member girl group, whose name is an anagram for “I’m fearless,” in an official blog post published on Wednesday. The event will see new in-game content inspired by the rising K-pop band behind hits like “FEARLESS” and “ANTIFRAGILE.”

Le Sserafim — comprised of members Kim Chaewon, Sakura, Huh Yunjin, Kazuha, and Hong Eunchae — will kick off their collaboration with Overwatch 2 with the release of their music video for their new single “Perfect Night,” which premieres October 26 at 9 p.m. PT. In the concept trailer for the music video, one of the members is seen wearing D.Va’s headphones. You can take a good guess who’s wearing them.
Overwatch 2 is getting a new game mode inspired by LE SSEFAFIM
On November 1, Overwatch 2 will launch a game mode inspired by Le Sserafim’s music alongside Legendary hero skins. Details on the mode and the skins will be revealed on October 30. Then the group will make an appearance at this year’s BlizzCon to perform “Perfect Night” and other songs.
“We’re extremely excited to be working with Le Sserafim for our game’s first musical artist collaboration,” Overwatch general manager Walter Kong wrote in a press release. “Like the heroes of Overwatch, the Le Sserafim members are amazing as individuals, but unstoppable when they come together.”
Overwatch 2’s first collaboration with a music group, let alone a K-Pop group, comes on the heels of its first anniversary and Microsoft finalizing its $69 billion acquisition of its parent company Activision Blizzard, placing the franchise under new ownership. What better way to celebrate Overwatch moving into its new home and the sequel’s first birthday than an in-game and real world K-Pop concert?
