Hi-Rez Studios, the driving force behind the award-winning SMITE, today announced the immediate release of the Closed Beta client for the upcoming online first-person shooter, Paladins. The game promises endless hours of entertainment in a competitive atmosphere that blends together the thrill of the first-person genre with unique collectible-card-based mechanics supporting the progression system.

“We’ve been giving gamers hands-on play time with Paladins at select events around the world since we unveiled it in August, and the response so far has been incredible. We’re excited to get the game out into the community so we can fine-tune it further into a truly spectacular multiplayer experience.”
Hi-Rez Studios COO Todd Harris

Players are still able to register their interest for the Paladins Closed Beta via the official website. Alternatively, instant access to the Closed Beta is available through the purchasing of the Paladins Founder’s Pack, which also includes a Fiery Warhorse mount and 20 card chests, equating to £ 15.99 GBP / $19.99 USD in value.

This initial phase of Closed Beta testing will only be available to play from 18:00 to 06:00 CET.
