Massively OP’s guide to Valentine’s Day 2018 across the MMORPG-verse
Is your Valentine’s day about love, friendship, or free candy from mom? In MMORPGs, it’s about questing, murder, and free loot! So, yeah, kinda the same. Enjoy Massively OP’s guide to this very pink not-a-holiday across the MMORPG genre – and some not-quite-MMOs too!

Atlas Reactor – Mad Love is back through February 20th.
Blade & Soul – NCsoft gets the award for “best/worst event name of the year” for Blade & Soulmate 2018. So bad it’s good. The events are live through March 16th, with raid quests and limited-time costume and weapon rewards, including a flamingo on a stick, and I am not even making that up.
Chronicles of Elyria – Soulbound has a V-day gifting solution for you if you’re sick of sending flowers! Spoilers: It includes whips.

DC Universe Online – Even supers need love. “The Star Sapphires are again making an effort to rekindle the love lost in Gotham City.” Expect new feats and quests to boot.

Destiny 2 – Crimson Days are live as of February 13th.

Final Fantasy XIV – Valentione’s Day is live in Square’s younger MMORPG too. The event “offers enamoured Eorzeans the chance to help out Lisette de Valentione and her retinue in exchange for a series of in-game items including housing furnishings and mounts” – but only for a few days this week.
Fortnite – PvE players were supposed to find a new themed questline, along with plenty of themed hero cosmetics, including a new crossbow. Pew pew. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.
GTAO – Vrooooooom. Cars and love. It’s actually a little bit bizarre how into V-day this game gets. “The Vapid Hustler is a shining example of what’s possible when old-world glamour slinks up next to the modern muscle car and asks, ‘My garage or yours?’”
