Paladins is a First Person Shooter game developed by Hi-Rez Studios, creators of the MOBA SMITE. The game is rooted in a colorful sci-fi fantasy setting featuring Champions, playable characters that have their own unique fire-function and abilities. Combat in Paladins is also nearly entirely skillshot-based, meaning projectiles can be dodged. Although each champion has its own personality and core skills, to get around Paladins' Maps the real character variation comes from a deckbuilding Cards System that augments a champion in different ways.
Closed beta phase began on November 17, 2015. The game officially went into open beta on September 16, 2016. The PC version of Paladins can be downloaded through the official website and also through Steam. The Founder's Pack can be obtained from the Paladins store. There are also Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions currently in development.Champions are the playable characters in Paladins. Each one has its own unique abilities and fighting style. Champions use Cards to increase their performance, and empower their skills.
Champions are organized in 4 different types: Front Line, Damage, Support and Flank.
Every champion carries an unique weapon and has a set of 4 skills exclusive to them. Apart from that, each champion has a special skill called Ultimate. Ultimate skills are not subject to cooldown, but instead use a meter that once full will unlock it to be used once. After using it, the meter will reset back to 0% (With some special exceptions). The ultimate meter is mainly filled by dealing damage to enemies, but there is also a passive gain that slowly increases it by 1% every couple of seconds.
New players start with 8 champions unlocked by default for free: Cassie, Drogoz, Fernando, Kinessa, Pip, Skye, Tyra and Viktor.
Additional champions can be purchased for either 5000 Currency Gold.png Gold or 200 Currency Crystals.png Crystals. The latest champion release always costs 7500 Currency Gold.png until another one is released, then it goes down to the default cost. All players that participated in the game's closed beta before April 7, 2016 were given all champions that were available up to Ying.
The Founder's Pack includes the Champion Pack, which automatically unlocks all current and future Champions in the game.
Each champion has their own mastery level, which increases the more they are played. Reaching a new rank grants 500 Currency Gold.png until rank 9. Reaching rank 9–14 will grant 1000 Currency Gold.png, reaching rank 15–18 will grant 1500 Currency Gold.png and reaching rank 19–24 will grant 4000 Currency Gold.png.
