Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We patch the game very frequently, and you will see it improve as additional content is added consistently over time. We will officially launch the game once we feel it is ready. All of your progress and purchases will be carried over from the Beta (Early Access) into the full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We are adding tons of content with every patch. By the time the game goes live, players can expect a host of awesome new Champions and in-game content.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are still very much in Beta and iterating on ideas and player feedback. We have frequent patches so players can expect the game to continue evolving throughout the Early Access period.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No, Paladins will always be Free-to-Play.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

About This Game



Enter a fantasy world of ancient technology in Paladins, a team-based shooter with strategy elements and deep character customization. Through a unique collectible card system, players can amplify and augment a character’s core set of abilities to play exactly how they want to play.



Fantastic Champions
Paladins is set in a vibrant fantasy world and features a diverse cast of Champions ranging from sharpshooting humans to mech-riding goblins, mystical elves, jetpack-clad dragons, and bomb golems. Each Champion brings a unique set of abilities to the battlefield and new Champions are regularly added to Paladins, keeping the game exciting.

Free-to-Play
Paladins is completely Free-to-Play. Anything that affects gameplay can be unlocked simply by playing, with cosmetic items available for purchase.

Card Mastery
Players collect unique cards for each Champion and build decks that empower their personal play styles. Gamers start with a basic deck of cards and unlock additional cards as they play, opening the door to creative new decks that radically change how Champions play. Players may further tweak their decks in-game with Burn Cards, making themselves stronger or counteracting opponents’ strategies.

Level Up
No matter how players choose to play Paladins, they will gain experience points as they play. As they level up their account, master each Champion, and complete daily quests/achievements players will receive Radiant Chests and Gold which can be used to unlock additional cards, costumes, and weapon skins. The more players play, the more unique their Champions will become.

Accessibility
Paladins is played from a first-person perspective. The controls are simple to grasp for newcomers and shooter veterans alike which makes for an easy pick-up-and-play experience, on either controller or keyboard and mouse.
