Hi-Rez studios reveals Paladins, a free-to-play FPS


You might know Hi-Rez Studios as those people responsible for Smite and now they have a free-to-play team-based shooter called Paladins.

The combat will be team-based with some strategy elements and character progression is tied to a deck of cards that give buffs and perks during the game.

The objective of the game is to capture and hold strategic points, destroy the enemy base and keep yours standing. Everyone has a mount to help get around quickly in this 6v6 shoot-out.

You can sign up for the closed beta at Paladins.com

Here is some early footage of the game, you might notice a load of icons from Smite being used as placeholder art. Does this genre have a specific name? Is it TF2-clones? Team-shooter cross MOBA or something? Hmm.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
