Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm Founder’s pack allows you to buy into the beta

The rumors of a Heroes of the Storm “founder’s pack” that would get you access to the beta began last year, but the $40 bundle is finally here. You pay your money, you get access to the game … along with some pretty choice loot if you’re into that sort of thing.

This is what you get for your $39.99:

  • THREE HEROES: Raynor, Diablo, and Tyrande
  • THREE SKINS: Commander Raynor, Lurkablo Diablo, and Blood Elf Tyrande
  • EPIC MOUNT: Golden Cyberwolf
  • A STASH OF GOLD: 2,500 in-game gold to help unlock additional heroes and other content
  • ACCESS TO THE NEXUS: Immediate access to play Heroes of the Storm

This mirrors the “Battle Bundle” found in the game, so it doesn’t look like you’re paying any extra for access, although if you want a guaranteed slot in the beta this is a good way to get in right now. So you have to pay to play for the moment, but the upside is that Blizzard isn’t raising the price for this bundle to take advantage of people desperate to play.

The press release also notes that the bundle can be taken down at any time if too many people sign up.
