Heroes Of The Storm Closed Beta Key Offered In New Founders Pack: $40 Gets You Into Blizzard's MOBA [VIDEO]
The closed beta of Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard's foray into the MOBA market, has begun. If you haven't gotten in, don't worry, an invite will undoubtedly be headed your way. In the meantime, however, you can still support the (ridiculously) fun title with the newly released Founder's Pack.
Let's be honest, it's a Blizzard game, so you're going to give it money one way or the other. The company is just being a little more upfront about it this time. For $39.99 (or what we can call 'two months of WoW'), not only can you get a bunch of characters, gold, and a fancy and shiny new mount, but also instant access to the Heroes of the Storm beta.
Who says money can't buy happiness?
The Founder's Pack includes three of the main characters in the various universes: Jim Raynor from Starcraft, Diablo from, well, you know and Tyrande Whisperwind from the Warcraft universe. You also get a new separate costume for each: Commander Raynor (the hard drinking version found in Starcraft II), Lurkable Diablo - or more like 'Murkable Diablo' amirite? He looks like a Murlock - or probably more like a Naga; and finally a Blood Elf version of Tyrande, which has to be some sort of racism. Because Tyrande is beautiful with her purple skin and doesn't need to go changing to conform to any of your outdated societal norms.
You also get 2,500 in game gold and an exclusive Golden Cyber Wolf for your characters to ride into battle with. Head over to battle.net to purchase.
Additionally, a new sale has gone live in the Nexus. You can purchase three new heroes/costume skins: Gazlowe -- Sale Price: $3.24 USD; Big Top Gazlowe Skin -- Sale Price: $4.99 USD; Magni Muradin Skin -- Sale Price: $4.99 USD
The latest Carbot video, reveals the pack with an adorable chibi-esque series of animations, which may be lacking in details but is still ridiculously cute to watch. Check it out below.
