Overwatch Supports Charity with Limited-Time Pink Mercy Skin

Share

Those cost $30, with half of the price going toward the BCRF.

Mercy just received a new legendary skin in "Overwatch" because of a new collaborative event between Blizzard and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The price for Pink Mercy is $14.99 United States dollars for PC, PS4, and XBOX One, and all of the proceeds will benefit the BCRF, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 USD.

As seen in the video above, this much more playful looking Mercy is available for purchase right now until May 21.

This limited-time skin is inspired by the Mercy hero character in Overwatch, who serves the role of healer and field medic in-game.

One of the ways players can show their support is simply purchasing the skin itself, "As a brilliant scientist and the guardian angel of Overwatch, Dr. Angela Ziegler-codename Mercy-has dedicated her life to helping and healing others". The second charity team-up since the Puppy Rumble, this will be the first charity tie-in to feature in-game cosmetics and rewards available.

Additionally, players can pick up a limited edition Pink Mercy charity shirt, designed by community artist VICKISIGH. BCRF's mission is to advance the world's most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. If you haven't already, log-in to your Twitch account and head to the connections page.

Special global emotes are available for Twitch chat during the event as well. To receive these, players need to watch four hours of participating charity streams. For a full schedule of streams and breakdown of rewards, visit the official Blizzard blog.
