The Pink Mercy skin will be available from May 8th, until Monday May 21st, and will cost £12.99 / $15 USD. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, with Blizzard promising to make a minimum donation of $250,000. The full amount will be revealed at the end of the money raising campaign.
Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan discusses the initiative in the video below.
A limited edition t-shirt is available to purchase alongside the Pink Mercy skin, plus there are special Twitch emotes, and Overwatch players can earn a number of event-themed sprays and icons by watching Blizzard’s scheduled charity livestreams, which will run daily until May 21st.
Pink Mercy skin
Pink Mercy is the first skin with a one-time unlock cost; she is not available in loot boxes. She can be purchased for $15 USD from today through to May 21.
Along with Pink Mercy and her assorted cosmetics, there will be daily charity streams by community members, with all donations adding to the total tally.
