Hi-Rez Studios’ team-based shooter Paladins has been in beta for ages and it appears they are ready to flick the switch and finally launch it.
The game will officially launch on 8 May and to celebrate Hi-Rez is holding a giveaway with everyone who played in the Paladins beta receiving 200 Crystals. Other events will also take place throughout May including in-game events and more.
Paladins launched on Steam Early Access on 15 September 2015 and it’s seen a lot of changes since then, some of which have caused heated discussion when it came down to player progression following changes last year. Anyone worried about future major changes willl be pleased to read this:
But what this does mean is that we are planning no more major system changes. We’ve found a formula that works for everyone: Free cards and sweet cosmetics. If you’ve been afraid to get reallyinvested into Paladins because we might change things again, don’t worry: This launch is our commitment to this vision for Paladins future.
If you enjoyed Siege of Ascension Peak, consider that the first small test of what’s to come. We’ve got a whole year of events planned out, even bigger and better than Siege of Ascension Peak. From awesome new Champions to fully custom in-game events, fun new game modes, lore cinematics, and incredible themed skins and cosmetics, we will be taking it to the next level in 2018.
Hi-Rez is still working on their battle royale mode, or Realm Royale as they are now calling it. That went into alpha testing in February.
