Hi-Rez Studios has announced its team-based fantasy shooter, Paladins, has surpassed four million players worldwide and has become one of the most popular games on Valve’s Steam platform.
“The worldwide response to Paladins has been incredible,” said Todd Harris, chief operating officer of HI-Rez Studios. “It has been thrilling to see the game grow week-over-week since the Steam Open Beta began in mid-September, as well as to hear all of the player feedback, which we are constantly using to improve the game.”
Paladins launched its Open Beta on Steam on September 16 with a Closed Beta expected to launch on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 soon. The game will also be launching in China through a partnership with Tencent.
In addition to announcing how many people are playing Paladins, Hi-Rez is releasing additional details surrounding Evie’s Winter Classic. The open competitive tournament will now be expanded to players around the world as players from Oceania, Latin America, Brazil, and Russia and partake in the event.
