Todd Harris, COO and co-founder of Hi-Rez Studios, had the following to say about the game finally entering its next beta phase:
“Since the start of closed beta late last year we’ve been refining the core gameplay and the overall user experience. Paladins is a team shooter with a fantasy setting, a sense of humor, and a high degree of customization and strategy. Paladins is now and always will be free-to-play and with our move to Open Beta anyone can download the game from the Paladins website or Steam. We look forward to continuing to shape and improve the game with an even larger community.”
The open beta contains a new user interface, a new match lobby, 17 Champions, and improvements to game’s ranking and customization systems. The Steam version of the game also includes achievements, and players of the game will also get a special Team Fortress 2 Engineer skin based of Paladins character Barik.
