Developer Hi-Rez Studios announced today that ‘Paladins: Champions of the Realm’, a free-to-play fantasy-themed team-based shooter, is now allowing gamers to sign up for closed betas for both Xbox One and Playstation 4. The title is already available in open beta on PC, where it saw more than one million players sign up in the first 10 days.

‘Paladins: Champions of the Realm’ is a team-based shooter with deep strategy elements and in-match character progression through decks of collectible cards. These cards amplify and augment a character’s core set of abilities in many interesting ways. Players can choose from a roster of Champions to play as during each match. Each Champion boasts different play styles and strengths to bring to your team. Champions have five different skills: a weapon to fight with, three abilities, and an Ultimate ability.  There’s also a $20 Founder’s Pack that gives immediate access to every Champion available, although all are unlockable through regular gameplay.

“From day 1 of development, Paladins was designed with console in mind. We’ve enlisted some big-name console gamers to make sure the control scheme feels just right. Name any big-time multiplayer shooter that you enjoy most on console and Paladins stands right there alongside them. Except Paladins will continue to be FREE on console, just like it is on PC and Mac!”

You can sign up for the closed beta for Xbox One here. You can also download the title for Steam and Windows here.
