The team based shooter is on the rise and Hi-Rez Studios is looking to get in on that piece of the pie. We’ve known about Paladins, their upcoming free to play game, since Gamescom but you probably didn’t get much of a look at any gameplay unless you were at the event.

For those of you that are curious, Hi-Rez Studios has released a video today that does feature a fair bit of gameplay. While it isn’t the focus of the video, players can use the video to get a bit of an idea about what to expect visually and animation wise. I’ve got to say though, while we speculated on the Free to Play Cast that games like Paladins and Overwatch were getting ready to flood the market…to me Paladins looks way too similar to Overwatch in style and execution. That’s only based on a few minutes of gameplay though so maybe things will change. Hopefully, Hi-Rez’s card system will create a bit more unique experience as well.

Pay the Paladins website a visit to sign up for upcoming testing.

  1. Beware of this company It likes shutting down their older games after horeing it for cash to make the next one to repeat the process over again.

  2. If game will be like hi rez global agenda then im looking forward but if its another brainless pvp only its just a copy paste of plenty of existing games

    • And when devs make an original game, it usually fails. There aren’t any great “arena” shooter games currently except a few that are quite old. So any good new games in the same “genre” is a great addition imo.

    • In original you mean super realistic graphics? Team fortress has very edgy cartoon characters with big hands, Paladins has smooth characters with some Disney elements mixed in it, Gigantic have a minimalistic Pixar like style, Overwatch is mixing the cartoony and realistic aspects in a perfect way.
      Every game has its own style but its more like about the low system req, so more people can access their games.
