Hi-Rez Studios’ new team-based shooter is now in beta.

Paladins, the team-based multiplayer shooter with collectible card game elements, has entered closed beta testing, developer Hi-Rez Studios has announced.

“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,” said Hi-Rez Studios COO Todd Harris. “We’re excited to get the game out into the community so we can fine-tune it further into a truly spectacular multiplayer experience.”

Players interested in joining Paladins’ closed beta can sign up for a chance to earn a free invite at the game’s official website. Alternatively, instant closed beta access can be acquired by purchasing the Paladins Founder’s Pack, which includes an exclusive Fiery Warhorse mount and 20 card chests, for €19.99 EUR / £15.99 GBP / $19.99 USD. In-game progress may be wiped during the beta phase as the game continues to evolve, although any purchases made will always be saved.

Paladins is expected to officially launch as a free-to-play game in 2016.
