A new champion was introduced during the Paladin’s Closed Beta patch 18 livestream this week. A slightly tanky champion with some really unusual special abilities, Androxus, The Godslayer is interesting to say the least. He features an Ultimate that allows him to effectively use his arm to fly, while still dealing damage to those on the ground, and his fall rate can be slowed with his passive ability — titled aptly, “Drift.”

Looks-wise, he’s rather dark and carries a pistol that is obviously not normal — it has a mouth.

In addition to the introduction of Androxus, the Paladins team have also added 21 new champion skins, one of which is a Founder’s Pack Exclusive, and a new weapon skin… also exclusive to those with Founder’s Packs. No images are available for these currently, although the dev team does promise to make them available soon.

    sigh… first it was a Widowmaker rip-off, now it’s a Reaper one? You won’t get anything out of Paladins Hi-Rez. Focus on SMITE.

      They’re trying super hard to rip off Overwatch.

        Paladins had most of these characters drafted and developing before Overwatch lol. They’re slower but Paladins was working first xP get your facts right please.

        They are not, the game is more like SMITE than Overwatch if you play it. Second if you were me with a crappy pc and no money to buy Overwatch you would have thought differently.

      90% the same as Overwatch but free
      I don’t understand why to be angry, it’s like if someone offers you a console 90% like PS4 but free, would you be angry because it’s a copy of PS4? I would not, I would be happy because it’s free!
      And yeah why to pay 60-70€ for a game that is 90% like Paladins?
