Activision Blizzard has teamed up with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) to release a limited edition Pink Mercy skin for Overwatch. The skin will only be available for purchase through May 21, with all sales benefiting the BCRF.
As Overwatch’s resident medic, Dr. Angela Ziegler, AKA Mercy, is the perfect candidate to support Breast Cancer Research. The Pink Mercy Skin is a bit on the pricey side ($14.99) but it is for charity, and looks great. Note the purchase is tied to the platform your purchase it on, and obviously bound to the account that purchased it.
Blizzard Entertainment has stated a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000, and will disclose the total amount of donation at the end of the campaign.
The new skin isn’t the only pink charity item. You can also purcahse Pink Mercy t-shirts via the Blizzard Gear Store. If you link your Blizzard account to your twitch account you will be eligible to receive several icons and sprays by watching participating charity streams.
Finally, simply log in to Overwatch any time between now and May 21 to unlock a unique BCRF icon.
Coming next week is Overwatch’s second anniversary, which will add over 50 new loot box goodies, including legendary skins. Overwatch will also be free to play next weekend, May 25-28.
The Breast Cancer Research Pink Mercy skin is very limited. You have until May 21 to buy it and support it a good cause.
