Overwatch Releases New Pink Mercy Skin With Full Proceeds Going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation

The limited-time skin will cost $15.

Blizzard announced that it has partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation on a new charity initiative. Starting today May 8 through May 21, players can purchase a limited edition Mercy skin in Overwatch for $15. The full proceeds will go to the BCRF.

That means 100 percent of the proceeds from the skin will go to the BCRF, with Blizzard promising a minimum donation of $250,000. Blizzard will disclose the total donation amount on May 21.

In addition, if players log in to Overwatch anytime between May 8 and May 21, they can unlock a BCRF-themed player icon, and there will be bonus promotions held on Twitch for additional content like sprays.

Finally, Blizzard is also releasing a physical t-shirt depicting Pink Mercy. Drawn by artist VICKISIGH, 100 percent of the proceeds from the shirt sale will also go towards the BCRF. The shirt is available through the Blizzard Gear Store and is available for pre-order.

You can see the video Blizzard released today with Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan talking about the important work being done over at the BCRF. Check out the video above.

So if you're interested in helping fight cancer and also want a cool new skin for Mercy, you can now log into Overwatch and show your support for both through this new, limited-time partnership.
