A special Overwatch Pink Mercy skin now for sale will send 100% of its proceeds to support breast cancer research.

The skin, available for $21.95 AUD between 9-22 May, will directly support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Blizzard advised. The skin is available on all platforms that Overwatch can be played upon: Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Blizzard also advised of a limited-edition pink Mercy t-shirt that can be purchased to further support the cause.

Overwatch livestreams to support the cause

Closer to home, ANZ streamers KidKerrigan and Rudeism will livestream on Twitch.tv, accepting donations to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation at the same time. Here’s when to expect each livestream:

  • KidKerrigan: 10.00 am – 4.00 pm AEST, 16 May (link)
  • Rudeism: 5.00 am – 9.00 am AEST, 21 May (link)

Those who watch the streams will be rewarded with Overwatch sprays and player icons.

Activision Blizzard has committed at least $250,000 USD to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation as part of this initiative.
