The 42nd set of beta patch notes for Hi-Rez's free-to-play team shooter hit this week, offering players a close look at the latest Champion to join the game's ranks. Torvald the "Runic Sage" is a team player, assisting allies with protective health shields. He also possesses the ability to heal himself using a siphon ability on his enemies.

In addition to the new champion -- which you can get a full preview of in the patch notes -- the new update also adds a variety of cool customizations -- including a collection of items that will make you look like a little green army man.

And, as always, there are a variety of tweaks to maps, characters and more as well.

Paladins is great game. Different enough tos eperate itself from OW. Both are arena games... Like every mmorpg is a "wow clone" like every moba is a LOL clone. Get over it. the only down side to paladins, like all these games: Derp players. I hit champion rank, and when in synchronized team, GOOD outcomes. Or even if I lose, you feel like the loss was worth it.... but that is rare, 99% of time you with pure idiots. Better off not playing it.

Wow people complaining about an average game over an average game....For the Blizz fanboys, no OW didn't did this originally. And Paladins the same. This game element already existed before them. People butthurt about OW is not GOTY or Paladins is accused for copying. Try to enjoy the game instead....
