With Heroes of the Storm now in Closed Beta, Blizzard Entertainment has decided to start offering Founder’s Packs up on their digital store.
Founders will receive the following in exchange for US$39.99 (SG$53):
- Immediate access to the game
- 2,500 in-game gold
- Golden Cyberwolf mount
- Three heroes: Raynor, Diablo, Tyrande
- Three skins: Commander Raynor, Lurkablo Diablo, Blood Elf Tyrande
Paying for early access isn’t generally recommended but if you’re just dying to get in then at least there’s very little risk involved here – Heroes of the Storm is polished for a Closed Beta. As for the included characters they do seem to be default beginner choices: Raynor for ranged offense, Diablo as the melee tank, and Tyrande providing ranged support. The gold and mount are just nice bonuses to round up the package.
Even so, I wouldn’t advise making this your first option if all you’re after is beta acess. For a start, they’ve started ramping up player invites so try your hand at one of the beta key giveaways on various gaming websites, such as ours!
Failing that there’ll be one hosted by Asiasoft for the Southeast Asia region (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines) at a later date, though details aren’t available yet. Stick around on the official SEA Facebook page for when that happens.
Lastly there’s always the regular closed beta application if you haven’t signed up already. The form can be found on the Heroes of the Storm website itself.
