Hi-Rez Studios have announced a new IP titled Paladins. The team-based first-person shooter, set in a rich fantasy world, is scheduled for release next year on Xbox One, PS4 and PC with a free-to-play model.
Gameplay sees players face off in team-based battles equipped with a primary weapon, a range of combat and movement skills, and a mount to quickly traverse between fights. Competitors start each match with a deck of skill cards that can be activated, customised and evolved as they level up, granting increased strength, defense, or utility in the match.
Hi-Rez Studios has dedicated a separate team to work on the game from Smite, its other popular free-to-play game. Smite was released last year for PC, and this year for Xbox One.
You can sign up for Paladins’ closed beta on the site.
