Beta Buy-In: Heroes Of The Storm Selling Founder's Pack
£30 for beta access and bits
For the low, low price of £29.99, you too can become a wizard this very day! Simple Paypal me £29.99 and I will send you detailed instructions on how to turn curtains into robes, coloured card into a pointy hat, chopsticks into wands, and socks into familiars, along with helpful tips on how to remove glitter from carpets.
I mean, you could take that 30 quid and buy a Founder's Pack for Heroes of the Storm, getting instant access to the beta and some wizards and a special mount and jazz, but that won't help me.
As will happen with wizard 'em ups, Blizzard are now selling beta access to their free-to-play-to-be game. Along with instant beta access, it includes permanent unlocks for three characters - Diablo, Raynor, and Tyrande - along with a bonus skin for each of 'em, a golden cyberwolf mount, and virtual cash to spend on microtransaction stuff (y'know, character unlocks, skins, and mounts etc.). It's a fairly typical bundle for a F2P Dote 'em up beta thing.
Sure, you can wait and hope you receive a beta invitation for free, or wait until it's finished and then play for free, but if you want to join the cool kids and see what Rich Stanton liked so much and see what your friends are going on about and discover why they've deserted you and why you don't play games together any more and maybe answer if they're just using HotS as an excuse to ditch you, well...
