You can now buy access to Blizzard's free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) Heroes of the Storm by purchasing a 29.99 Founder's Pack.


Putting down your money will guarantee you access into the game's ongoing closed beta and unlock a number of in-game bonuses.

The Founder's Pack includes 2500 in-game gold, three heroes (Raynor, Diablo, Tyrande), three skins and an epic mount - the Golden Cyberwolf.

Heroes of the Storm has been available to a lucky few for some time - first, before Christmas, in a technical alpha. Then, as of last week the game has been updated to its new closed beta state.

The launch process is similar to Blizzard's brilliant free-to-play CCG Hearthstone, which rolled through its own beta stages around a year ago.

You can buy the Founder's Pack now via the launcher, although Blizzard has warned that purchases may be temporarily suspended at some point "to ensure a stable testing environment".

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
