aladins is a First Person Shooter game developed by Hi-Rez Studios, creators of the MOBA SMITE. The game is rooted in a colorful sci-fi fantasy setting featuring Champions, playable characters that have their own unique fire-function and abilities. Combat in Paladins is also nearly entirely skillshot-based, meaning projectiles can be dodged. Although each champion has its own personality and core skills, to get around Paladins’ Maps the real character variation comes from a deckbuilding Cards System that augments a champion in different ways.
Closed beta phase began on November 17, 2015. The game officialy went into open beta on September 16, 2016. The PC version of Paladins can be downloaded through the official website and also through Steam. The Founder’s Pack can be obtained from the Paladins store. There are also Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions currently in development.
