Overwatch’s Mercy gets a new skin for charity

Overwatch’s Mercy gets a new skin for charity

We're used to seeing Overwatch get most of its new skins through the variety of in-game events Blizzard rolls out each year, but with its newest skin, Blizzard is doing things a little differently. The company has announced a new skin for Mercy that isn't found in loot boxes - instead, the only way to get it is to outright purchase it. That's a bit strange for Blizzard, which loves its loot boxes, but then again, this isn't exactly your run-of-the-mill skin.

Overwatch Uprising returns for a second round next month

Overwatch Uprising returns for a second round next month

Most of Overwatch's in-game events tie into a holiday or time of year, so revisiting them on a yearly basis makes a lot of sense. Then we come to Overwatch Uprising, an event which has no ties to real-world happenings, but rather tells the story of Overwatch back before the team was first disbanded. Since it isn't anchored in the real world, we weren't sure if Uprising would return for a second go this year, but now Blizzard has confirmed that it will.
