On Monday, Overwatch developer Blizzard Entertainment released a short story called Valkyrie, a 24-page story about Mercy. Now, the company’s celebrating the Swiss healer with a new event, “Mercy’s Recall Challenge.”

Mercy Recall Challenge Blizzard Entertainment

Overwatch players can participate in Mercy’s Recall Challenge from Nov. 12 to Dec. 2, where they can earn eight sprays, a player icon, and the Legendary Dr. Ziegler skin shown off in yesterday’s short story. Here’s how to earn the rewards:

  • Win three games to earn one player icon
  • Win six games to earn two new sprays
  • Win nine games total to unlock the Dr. Ziegler skin

The rest of the rewards are earned through participating Twitch steams. Watching two hours will unlock one new spray. Four more hours will unlock two more new sprays, and watching six hours total will earn three new sprays. To earn these rewards, viewers must link their Blizzard and Twitch accounts.

All of the new rewards, of course, are centered on Mercy: Mercy wearing her lab coat, Mercy healing Mei, Mercy with pink hair helping a child, Mercy at her laptop, and Mercy checking the time. And, as usual, they’re lovely.
