Atomic Heart romance options

An Atomic Heart romance is technically on the cards, though the truth at the centre of this surreal love story may well break your heart.

An Atomic Heart romance may seem unlikely, but don’t count it out just yet. Mundfish left a trail of breadcrumbs suggesting that Atomic Heart is a love story in the years preceding its eventual release, and we’ve got the full scoop on what all those hints mean.

It’s hard to imagine an Atomic Heart romance could fit among the chaos of Soviet absurdism, but that hasn’t dampened the fire of fan speculation If you’re looking for love in the open-world game, here’s your answer to the possibility of an Atomic Heart romance. Needless to say, there are spoilers below.

Sadly, there are no romance options in Atomic Heart. While it pains us to say it, you won’t be able to romance the infamous ballerina twins that have taken the spotlight. In fact, the only time we’ll be getting up close and personal with the terrible twosome will be as Atomic Heart bosses during a final confrontation with Sechenov.

But is it really that simple? One of the biggest revelations leading up to the Atomic Heart endings includes the existence of Ekaterina, Major P-3’s deceased wife. As an accomplished ballet dancer and martial artist, Ekaterina’s consciousness was transplanted into the ballerinas to serve as Sechenov’s personal security detail. So, in a sense, we do have a romantic connection to the twins – just not one that can be pursued by the player.

Developer Mundfish has come under increasing scrutiny in recent weeks after it was alleged that the Russian government stands to gain financially from the release of Atomic Heart. This is due to the fact that investors involved in financing Mundfish include GEM Capital, an investment fund whose founder has ties to Gazprom and VTB Bank, both of which are majority-owned by the Russian state.

Further, Mundfish is partnering with VK (formerly Mail.RU) for the Russian release of Atomic Heart, evading sanctions on Steam. VK is also majority-owned by the Russian state through Gazprombank, and Mundfish’s CEO is a former Creative Director at Mail.RU.

With Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, many players are choosing to boycott the game in protest and donate money to organisations like The Ukraine Crisis Appeal, International Rescue Committee, and the British Red Cross.
