The beta for Clicker Heroes II is on the way, and it’s on the way soon. Playsaurus has confirmed a July 16 release date for the early version of the game, so you’ll be able to get your hands on it in a little over a month.
You can get access to the beta for pre-ordering Clicker Heroes II for $29.99, and Playsaurus has a pretty generous offer in mind for early purchasers. You’ll be able to get a full refund on your pre-order “at any time, for any reason” up to one year after the launch of the game. “By pre-ordering, you’re putting your trust in us to develop a good game without being completely sure about what you’ll get. We feel the only way to return the favor is to put our trust in you.”

In addition to beta access, pre-orders guarantee you a downloadable executable for the game, all future updates, an optional Steam key, a bonus character skin, and $20 worth of rubies for the original Clicker Heroes.
Like the previous game, Clicker Heroes II has you arming an RPG hero with gear and talents to defeat a series of monsters that get exponentially more powerful over time. Mostly, that means a lot of clicking – on enemies or on upgrades – and enjoying the always-satisfying process of watching the numbers go up.
Of course, the biggest change for the sequel is that it’s no longer free-to-play. Clicker Heroes II won’t have microtransactions for in-game currency or other game-affecting content, citing “ethical reasons” for the change in business model. The door’s still open for cosmetics – like the pre-order bonus skin above – but there won’t be anything more than that. Clicker Heroes II is set to launch in full sometime in 2018.
