Hi-Rez Studios’ hero-based shooter Paladins has been around in Early Access for over a year-and-a-half refining its gameplay and roster of unique characters for players to utilize, and now the game’s launch is coming within just a few short days for all to enjoy.

Developer Hi-Rez Studios has announced that Paladins will be leaving Early Access on May 8th, 2018 and will officially release for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac on that date. Alongside the game’s official launch, Hi-Rez stated that it will be celebrating the game’s debut by offering two weeks of in-game events with a variety of rewards, along with a giveaway.

Specifically, the studio will be giving all beta players 200 in-game Crystals for free, which will automatically be given to players that log into the game between May 8-31 along with a special Beta Avatar to use. Prior to the game’s launch, all players of the beta now through May 7th will be able to access all of the game’s heroes, and will also be eligible to earn the free in-game Crystals prior to launch. In addition to these bonuses, Hi-Rez will also be planning a day-long livestream and more to celebrate the game’s debut next week.

Paladins will officially release for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac on May 8th, 2018.
