Paladins: Champions of the Realm is Headed to Console


Paladins, a game that shares a lot of ideas from the ubber-popular Overwatch game, is now coming to the Playstation 4 and XBOX One. Check out the full details below.

Coming from the PS Blog:

1 – It’s Not Another Sci-Fi Shooter
Paladins is set in a fantasy world of ancient technology. Here, you’ll fight your way through the Realm — a world of enchanted forests, ancient temples, medieval castles, and frozen keeps. It’s just like your favorite fantasy books… with a little twist.

2 – There’s a Champion Perfect for You
Do you see yourself as a bad-ass sniper? Or are you more of a mech-riding goblin? Or perhaps you’d rather be a mystical elf, a jetpack-clad dragon, or a bomb golem?

3 – You Can Play How You Want to Play
Ever played a game where you kinda liked one of the characters, but he’d be so much cooler if you could tweak his abilities just a tiny bit? Us too. That’s why we implemented Paladins’ unique collectible card system. You can build your own deck of cards to amplify and augment each Champion’s core set of abilities, so he or she becomes exactly the Champion that you want to play.

4 – It’s Perfect for Console
From day one of development, Paladins was designed with console in mind. We’ve enlisted some big-name console gamers to make sure the control scheme feels just right.

5 – It’s free!
Here’s the deal: Paladins is free, because it sucks to not be able to play video games with your friends. We know that not everyone can afford a $60 video game, so at Hi-Rez Studios, we make our games free. We just want you and your friends to have fun together.

The game looks decent and I will probably give it a whirl when it is released. Players can sign up for the closed beta right now. Click here and register.
