Pink Mercy Skin in Overwatch is both fabulous and raising money for charity

Blizzard Entertainment has partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation with the release of a Pink Mercy skin for the Overwatch support hero.

Now available across PS4, Xbox One and PC for £12.99, the limited edition skin can be purchased until May 21 with 100% of proceeds going to charity.

The skin itself is amazing, complete with custom sound effects when Mercy is flying through the air, reviving allies or activating her ultimate ability.

Blizzard has guaranteed a minimum donation of $250,000 to the organisation and will disclose the full figure once the skin is no longer up for sale.

The purchase of Pink Mercy is tied to your Blizzard account so it should, in theory, appear on both consoles and PC if you play across both.

Overwatch has evolved consistently since its initial release in May 2016. So much so that we jumped back into the hero shooter to update our review:

‘It remains one of the most compelling and experimental shooters in the world right now. Blizzard Entertainment’s commitment to innovative new heroes, modes and responding to community feedback is unparalleled – and a treat to watch.

Like World of Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo before it, Blizzard has crafted something that will undoubtedly be around for years to come.’
