Overwatch’s Mercy Set to Receive New Voice Line Mid-November

on October 15, 2016 9:37 AM

Overwatch’s Halloween update is here, and the response from players has been largely positive. However, demand for one particular feature has made waves over on the game’s forums: the distribution of Mercy’s new voice line (found currently only in brawl mode) to all game modes. Over 500-plus posts later, players petitioning have received good news.

So what do Overwatch players want exactly? Well according to the pages and pages of signatures, players are calling for Mercy’s ultimate voice line — “Heroes never die” — to be replaced when using the new Halloween themed skin. In its place, the petition wants her to say what she does in the game’s new Junkenstein Brawl mode: “My servants never die.”

After a continuous thread of demand, game’s director Jeff Kaplan showed up on the forums with a simple “Ok..ETA mid-Nov.”

It’s unclear whether or not the update will arrive on consoles at the same time, but like past updates, it’s safe to expect the PC to get the update first followed by the PS4 and Xbox One.
