“My servants never die!”
You wouldn’t think that Blizzard Entertainment’s decision to include a specific voiceline for Mercy, the support healer in Overwatch, would be such a big deal. However, following the event of the Halloween Terror event and release of Mercy’s Witch skin, players have been clamouring for a particularly spooky line that she speaks during the Brawl but not in Quick Play or Competitive.
Game director Jeff Kaplan took the forums to answer the long-standing request, confirming that the voice line would be coming, “ETA: Mid-November.” Maybe more such lines are en-route for other skins?
The Halloween Terror event began on October 11th and is scheduled to run till November 1st. It contains Overwatch’s first co-op PvE Brawl with heroes Soldier 76, McCree, Ana and Hanzo facing a legion of Zomnics. Heroes like Reaper, Roadhog, Junkrat and Mercy appear as bosses, each with their own specific backstories for this Halloween madness.
