It'll be free to play... eventually.

Next Tuesday will see the launch of a popular hero shooter on the Switch.

After being teased with eShop updates, Paladins: Champions of the Realm was listed in the European eShop as available for pre-purchase with an unlock date of 12 June (this coming Tuesday). Although the game is normally free-to-play, the listing is for a Founder's Pack that comes with exclusive voice packs and has all playable characters unlocked for €29.99/£24.99. The listing confirms the game will go free-to-play later this year.

Paladins is a 5-on-5 shooter with customizable heroes who can adapt multiple styles of play and unlock cosmetics through gameplay or purchase. Cross-platform play may be supported, though this is not confirmed, as the ad includes a reference to "join 25 million players".

I thought Cross play was confirmed, along with 60fps and the possibility of motion controls in the future.

Cross-play with Xbox One.

NVC confirmed 60 fps and XBONE cross play. No mention of potential motion controls.


I'll probably get one of these games (this or Fortnite, or PUBG if that gets announced), and I'll wait until after E3 to decide which.

I'm pretty sure Microsoft paid for PUBG console exclusivity.  I prefer PUBG as a game, but it's pretty clear it was the wrong horse to back between the two.  (That's me assuming Microsoft would even have the opportunity to make that kind of deal with Epic, though).


I don't know much about Paladins, but if there's a F2P version coming out sometime, I'll give it a shot.
