Paladins officially launched the Open Beta with the release of a Steam version! If you are new to Paladins, there are certainly things you might not know about this game yet. We compiled the most important info for your perfect start as a Champion of the Realm!
Pick your Poison
As you may have already noticed, you can pick between a whole set of items throughout the matches that allow you to gain additional advantages over your enemy. However, there are also Cards with which you can build your own Card Deck for each Champion in Paladins. You can either obtain the cards from Radiant Chests, chests that are obtained by leveling up or purchasing them which randomly award you Cards or Skins, or by buying them directly with your earned gold in the Card Selection menu. Building the right decks and buying the most fitting items is essential for your competition capabilities in the Realm!
Paladins Is Still Growing
The Open Beta will be the start of the blossoming phase of Paladins. Although the time of major gameplay changes should be over with the end of the Closed Beta, you should not expect a stagnation of the current game state. The game will be changing and expanding a lot in the next coming months and you can help it heading in the right direction. Use the feedback forms in the main menu of Paladins, join discussions on the Paladins reddit or report bugs you encountered to the Paladins forums.
The Voice Guided System (VGS System)
There are several ways to communicate with your team partners. Some methods take more time than the others, a few of them will be harder to access. The best way to communicate on a fast and efficient way is the integrated Voice Guided System (VGS) that can be accessed ingame by clicking the ‘V’ key. From there on, you can easily call a Group-up or an incoming ultimate to your team members in less than a second!
