For the first week, players who engage in matches will be rewarded with a special in-game portrait. An experience boost will also be active for the first three weeks from launch.

In Heroes of the Storm, players are able to play up to seven heroes each week for free. Access to additional heroes can be purchased using real-world money or in-game gold. Players can earn in-game gold by leveling up their accounts, completing quests, or simply participating in matches.

Heroes recently gained some mainstream attention when part of the Heroes of the Dorm tournament was broadcast on ESPN 2. This was criticized by both some ESPN viewers and at least one ESPN employee.
