Smite developer announces team-based FPS with collectible cards, Paladins

Paladins is an upcoming free-to-play first-person shooter that uses collectible cards to change the pace of each battle. Check out its first in-game trailer and screenshots.


Hi-Rez Studios, best known for its MOBA Smite, have revealed the first screenshots and gameplay footage of its upcoming team-based FPS, Paladins.

Paladins appears to be your run-of-the-mill team-based FPS on its surface, but it offers a combination of deep strategy and in-match character progression through the use of collectible cards. As you progress through the game, you’ll be given new cards that can be used to help enhance your character’s core abilities. Each game you play won’t be like the last as you’ll be given access to new cards on a regular basis.

Paladins will be opening very soon to early access. If you’re interested in checking out Hi-Rez Studios upcoming free-to-play team-based FPS, head on over to and sign up.

      They're gonna have a lot of work considering they just brought Tribes back from the grave.

      Don't really play any of their games but from reading and hearing other people's opinions after the Tribes debacle is to wait and see.

        Maybe the SMITE money tree is firmly planted and they can expand.

        I'm happy to see them put energy back into Tribes (the new class changes to just Light, Medium, Heavy sound great); that game deserves more love. I'll take an Unreal4 version for sure!

      So next year they will have another new game and abandon this one just as it's gaining traction?
