The Paladins Closed Beta Starts Today

PS4 teams can qualify to compete in DreamHack Valencia this July for a shot at the $50,000 prize.

We’re happy to announce that the Paladins Closed Beta starts today… and you could earn a free trip to Spain.

TL;DR:

  • Paladins Closed Beta is finally here!
  • You get instant access to Paladins (plus all the Champions we ever release, forever) when you buy the Founder’s Pack for just $15 — 25% off the normal price!
  • Paladins console esports starts now. And we’re sending the two best PS4 teams to Spain to participate in DreamHack Valencia 2017.

What is Paladins?

Never heard of Paladins? It’s a fantasy, team-based shooter. It’s a world of knights with flamethrowers, dragons with rocket launchers, and furry alchemists who turn enemies into chickens. As you can probably tell, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

But Paladins is a game that has a lot of depth and customization compared to other hero shooters. It’s a game where you can play how you want to play.

You can build your own loadout of cards to amplify and augment each Champion’s core set of abilities, so he or she becomes exactly the Champion that you want to play. And your Champion looks exactly how you want him or her to look, thanks to our multi-part skin system.

How Can I Play?

Easy: starting today, you can buy the Paladins Founder’s Pack at PlayStation Store!

As a welcome gift to new players dying to get into the Realm, you can get the Founder’s Pack for just $15 through March 28. That’s 25% off… and PlayStation Plus members will get an even better discount!

The Founder’s Pack doesn’t just give you Closed Beta access. It also includes:

  • Every Champion we ever release. Ever. Forever.
  • A Beta-exclusive Skin Collection and Mount.
  • 10 Radiant Chests, each containing Cards, Skins, and more.
  • 72,000 Essence to craft the cards you want.
  • A Paladins-themed skin for Ares in Smite on PS4.

One big note: the Founder’s Pack only gets better as more Champions are released, and we release Champions all the time. We’re on track to release at least 15 new Champions this year!

Don’t have $15 to spare at the moment? Don’t worry — like all Hi-Rez Studios games, Paladins will be free-to-play for everyone when it’s released into Open Beta at a future date. In the meantime, you can sign up for a Beta code here.

Paladins Esports? Free Trip to Spain?

Since we first announced Paladins was coming to PS4, we’ve heard the same question over and over: “Can I play competitive Paladins on PS4?”

Today, we’re happy to reveal our answer is a resounding yes. You and your friends could win the $50,000 Paladins Console Wars at DreamHack Valencia, July 13-16 in Valencia, Spain!

Two PS4 teams will qualify for the tournament. The best team in North America, and the best team in Europe. Those two teams will face off for the title of best PS4 Paladins team.

So to sum it all up:

  • Buy the Founder’s Pack for $15 and start playing Paladins today.
  • Get really good.
  • Win a free trip to Spain and a share of $50,000.

That just about wraps it up. We’ve just got one question left: are you ready to defend the Realm, Champion?

  • I bought the Founder’s pack and did not receive everything that it says it includes. No radiant chests, and not even close to 72,000 essence. Got the skin pack and mount, but still missing items. Might be a bug but don’t buy it until they sort it out.

  • I’ll say it, it looks like a free2play overwatch knock off

  • I’ve been playing in the closed beta for a couple of months now and the game is awesome.

  • For some reason I had it in my head that this was a MOBA so I’ve paid no attention to it. Glad to see I was wrong. For $15 I might jump in and give it a try, even though I generally suck at MP games.

  • I had a beta key but i don’t know where i have to use it someone can help me thanks

    • U have to go in PS store. There is a redeem code section there. Insert the code. Begin download. Hope this helps :)

  • Can’t wait to play clonewatch!

    • Im confused, I signed up for the beta but did i sign up for the open or closed beta, because when i signed up i got an email saying “Congratulations, you’ve signed up for the console closed beta” but this article says when you sign up its for the open beta, so which one did i truly sign up for, how long till the open beta is out, and if i did sign up for the closed beta, how long till i get my code?

  • … If you can get into the beta buy buying the founders pack, it’s not a closed beta, it’s a BOUGHT/BUY IN beta, right? Please market correctly. =)

    • They did. U just misunderstood or u can’t read. U have to sign up for beta. But u can buy the pack to increase ur experience and get a better feel for the charters without having to get them the long way

  • Looks like fun. This would be great on vita or perhaps a new handheld.

  • Does anyone know if we can buy the founder’s pack during open beta? Don’t want to spend money before I’ve played the game.

    • The Founder’s Pack will be available through launch, and the Champion Pack that it contains will be available in some form forever!

  • Wait…. If the closed beta starts today, what have I been playing on my PS4 for the past few months? lol

  • Does anyone know if there will be an account link.
    like they did with Smite?
    Where you can link your PC account to PS4/XB1.
    Just wondering?

  • So I guess all this time we were plaing the Alpha?

  • Como jogar com minha conta do PC no PS4?

  • Can’t help but see a copy of Overwatch on this game.Anyway…I saw this game countless times as an ad in sites I use to visit…never imagined coming to PS4.Oh well I’ll be waiting for an open-beta.

  • If the founders pack includes these chests, does the progress we make carry over at launch? I’d hate to spend money on the chests if the items we receive are just for beta.

  • Im confused, I signed up for the beta but did i sign up for the open or closed beta, because when i signed up i got an email saying “Congratulations, you’ve signed up for the console closed beta” but this article says when you sign up its for the open beta, so which one did i truly sign up for, how long till the open beta is out, and if i did sign up for the closed beta, how long till i get my code?

  • I was sent a closed beta key by Gamespot that doesn’t work. Is there any way to get a new one?
