The "Royal Knight" Mercy skin has been revealed by Blizzard Entertainment in celebration of the Overwatch League's (OWL) Midseason Madness tournament.

To celebrate the first global tournament of the 2022 Overwatch League season, here's a breakdown of the brand-new, Legendary Royal Knight Mercy skin.

From July 19 to Aug. 19, Royal Knight Mercy is available now for players to purchase in-game for 200 League Tokens ($9.99 USD), which can also be earned for free by watching live Overwatch League broadcasts.

According to Blizzard, this newest Overwatch League tournament-inspired legendary skin pays homage to last year’s June Joust.

"The skin fits well with her characteristics of helping, protecting and being a guardian of the people," Blizzard concept artist Emily Siu said in the OWL blog post.

This year's Overwatch Midseason Madness global tournament will run from July 18, to Sunday, July 24.
