You won’t need an infinite wallet to play Infinite Crisis, WB/Turbine’s upcoming DC Heroes MOBA… but a little money will certainly help.

Today the company announced the details and pricing for its Founders Program, which offers three packages for players looking to get a head start in the F2P title. All packages include immediate access to the Closed Beta and a Protector Icon for use in-game and on forums.

  • The Basic Package ($19.99) also includes 800 Crisis Coins, three champion unlocks (Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern), and a buddy key for Closed Beta.
  • The Standard Package ($49.99) ups the ante to 3200 Crisis Coins, six champions (the three above, plus The Flash, Gaslight Batman, and Poison Ivy), the “Renaissance” Gaslight Batman costume, and two buddy keys.
  • The Elite Package ($99.99) gives you 8600 Crisis Coins, 12 champions (above, plus Gaslight Catwoman, Gaslight Joker, Cyborg, Nightmare Batman, Shazam, and Zatanna), “Renaissance” Gaslight Batman and “Arkham City” Batman costumes. four buddy keys, and guaranteed access to the next map, Gotham Divided.

It’s pretty standard these days for companies to offer pre-launch packages for their F2P games, and Turbine certainly touts the values of these ones, claiming them to be worth about twice their price. What do you think? Will you be picking up one of these pre-launch Founders packages?


  1. its pay to enjoy thou, even if you have 20% special drop rate you barely have more than one drop of hero, back in CBT the game was perfect minus bugs, and at beta I only have 15% special drop rate.

    remember I said pay to enjoy not win, yes its free to play, even if you play for 1 year 8 hours a day iIl bet you will only get 5 heroes, at CBT i got atleast 15 heroes.

    no problem for me thou there are alot of other things to keep me busy, if its not worthy they better shutdown, its only a couple of months after the official launch, I’ll give them around that time or their only plan next is to shutdown

  2. Waste of money if you ask me, for two reasons. First, the game will come out sooner or later so why waste money on “guaranteed access. And second, mmobomb and other sites will prolly have plenty of these keys to give away for free. Oh wait, I forgot, most mmo players are impatient children that want everything NOW. There is a point to the founders packs…for all the little kids that refuse to wait to be able to play for free. I get it now.

  3. So the game itself will be free-to-play while the closed beta will be pay-to-play. Tell us how that makes any sense. May as well make the game itself pay-to-play as well

    • The beta isn’t pay-to-play, if you were like me and my friends your preferred access key got you entrance into the beta which gives you crisis coins and every week of closed beta you got a code that gave you 3000 crisis coins and 9000 merit.

    • Hate to say it, but it’ a pretty common practice these days. They’ll still hand out closed beta keys to those who’ve signed up for it, but they’ll also sell immediate access to the game via founder packs. It’s a good way to get a buddie in game with you, but you’re right about it smelling a little funny. Luckily, there’s nothing in the packs that’s pay to win, or that will give buyers a significant advantage. A few extra heros, sure, but nothing you won’t be able to get yourself.

      Not a huge fan of founder packs, but I don’t see them going away anytime soon. So many companies are pushing them out because, well, people buy ‘um. Hell, look at how much money neverwinter and Path of Exile’s founder packs brought to the dev. team. New MMOs will see that success and give it a shot themselves for a while longer, if for nothing else than a couple extra bucks to line the development budget with.
