    Scam warning:

    There is no such thing as "keys" for this. Battle.net gives you access or it doesn't. Anybody who says they're giving away "keys" is scamming you and possibly doing other awful things.

    not sure if this is taken but I can't even log into my 2 battlenet accounts and their garbage image code you to enter to reset your pw never works for me.

    ... Lulz

    I watched a couple gameplay videos today. Certainly seems interesting. Dunno how long the new car smell will last but I'm excited to give it a try. Seems like some characters have much more interesting gameplay than others, but that might just be down to opinion.

    Once enough people actually get some keys we should schedule some weekend play sessions.

    so i just log into battlenet and see if i got in? or is there something i have to do to request access. this sounds like fun after skimming the OP article. I'm mostly in town rest of the year so i'm gearing up for some more game (and guitar) time...

    You'll get an email.

    You need to go to battle.net once and sign up though.

    It's coming out in June 2016, for PC, XBone, and PS4.

    It's $59.99. They're going to sell skins for the units. You can get exclusive skins by pre-ordering.

    GameStop leaked it so they put the info up. Most of it.

    $40 for the base version which is only on PC.

    Console versions and the premium PC version cost $60 and include all the skins.

    Kotaku interviewed Scott Mercer about the pricing and future monetization.

    tl;dr version: they realize this pricing is a gamble, but they think it's the right approach for the game because they want people switching heroes a lot in game, and that means having everybody have all the heroes. If that gamble doesn't work out, they'll rethink.

    I'm not a big fan of buying into something when its pricing model is "still up in the air"... Out of Blizzards last 3 or 4 games, I have liked exactly zero of their pricing models.

    Not sure what's up in the air about it; they've announced the date and the price. Yes, they could change later if it doesn't work out; but that's true of EVERY game. I mean, we can't really take the position "make it Buy 2 Play with cosmetic-only microtransactions, and if that doesn't work, just lose massive amounts of money forever because you PROMISED."

    The pricing is no more up in the air for this than it is for games that came out last month.
