Paladins firing onto Switch

After several weeks rumours and leaks the hero shooter is finally making its way to Switch next week.

Developer Hi-Rez Studios announced that the game will be on Switch from next week on 12th June. Despite living in the shadow of Overwatch the game has managed to amass quite the audience and is probably hoping that the absence of Overwatch on Switch leaves a nice gap that Paladins can fill. You can check out the trailer for the game below.

As a nice surprise Switch owners will be getting the same experience as other consoles with the game running at 60 fps and even has cross platform play with Xbox One so there wont be any worries over a small user base to play with. Less of a nice surprise is that the free to play version wont be available at launch, initially you’ll need to purchase a Founders Pack (£24.99/$29.99) to play, the Founders Pack does grant you access to all 36 heroes in game as well as some additional cosmetic items. The free to play version of the game is still on its way and will launch later this summer.

What do you think of Paladins? Will you be jumping into the shooter with the Founders Pack? Let us know in the comments below.

Paladins Founders Pack is available from 12th June with the free to play version launching this summer. Stay tuned to the Switch Player for more information as we get it.
