Mercy is one of the most iconic characters in Overwatch, even appearing in the BlizzCon trailer for the sequel earlier this month, and that's presumably why Blizzard has chosen her as the focus for the short story known as Valkyrie, which you can read right here.
Lead writer Michael Chu made the story for Valkyrie (we talked to him in the interview below about the sequel), and there are several illustrations in the story, which is all about Mercy asking herself if she should rejoin the fight once more.
If you're a fan of the game's lore this is certainly worth a read, and even includes references to other characters in the franchise.
Considering there's an increased focus on story with the sequel, including PvE and co-operative play, this isn't too surprising to see, although it's not as if world-building is new to Blizzard. After all, they've been releasing plenty of extra material to flesh out the characters since release.
Are you pleased that Mercy has the spotlight?
