The wait is over. It’s my pleasure to unveil the latest Paladins Champion proper right here, solely at PlayStation.Weblog.
Evil Mojo Video games has been constructing as much as this Champion reveal for months, as a part of Paladins’ ongoing lore marketing campaign. We’ve hinted at his existence because the Paladins arrived within the Shattered Desert and located portals radiating with otherworldly energy. The Paladins neighborhood has been theorycrafting all week, attempting to decipher teasers. And I’m thrilled to be the primary to inform you about him.
Atlas, Man out of Time, would be the subsequent Frontline Champion in Paladins.
There isn’t any mild sooner or later, solely an all-consuming Darkness. The Realm is misplaced.
Atlas was born into this darkish future because the son of a legendary Choose. Every day he fought to outlive, and every evening he discovered solace in tales of the Realm that was. These tales gave Realmkind hope, however their remaining stand in opposition to the Darkness failed tragically. All hope was misplaced… however one.
Atlas studied outdated books of Crystal magic and mastered the management of time. He researched outdated tales of what began all this, of how the world had fallen. After which (as you noticed within the video) Atlas stepped into the previous, decided to avoid wasting the Realm — and cease the Darkness — by altering the course of historical past.
While you play as Atlas, you’ll really feel his unimaginable management of time in each capability. He can summon a wall that slows time for enemy bullets and arrows. He can rewind time for himself… and for opponents. And together with his final, Atlas may even banish his foes from the space-time continuum.
And I haven’t even begun to speak about Atlas’s unimaginable gun arm. It’s an ideal piece of future-fantasy expertise, a really distinctive weapon with 4 totally different firing modes relying on how lengthy you cost every shot. Adapt to any fight state of affairs as you unleash a exact single shot, or a close-range burst of power.
You’ll have the ability to play Atlas in our March replace, “Future’s Finish.” But when Atlas has you enthusiastic about Paladins, there’s no higher time to begin enjoying.
We’re providing a free bundle for PlayStation Plus Members for a restricted time! With the Paladins PlayStation Plus Pack, you’ll wield weapons and magic with eight free Champions. Select from a lethal murderer, a cursed lawman, a self-important knight, and extra. You’ll additionally unlock Voice Packs to your eight free Champions, plus 10 skins and bonus beauty content material together with a Mount!
Atlas isn’t the one new content material coming in “Future’s Finish.” This large replace is our greatest but.
We’ll be launching an all-new Battle Move in Future’s Finish: An Eight-bit, retro gaming-themed Battle Byte Battle Move! The pixelated results on these skins are completely gorgeous, and actually seize the nostalgia of our shared gaming historical past.
And, in fact, we’ll conclude the Finish Occasions occasion that began in our February replace. This occasion features a particular sport mode the place you may battle within the Shattered Desert and expertise the ability of the portals that introduced Atlas again in time.
This occasion additionally features a ton of unimaginable Omega skins, depicting an alternate high-tech future. My favourite needs to be the all-new Omega Imani, that includes an unimaginable mecha-dragon. That is Imani’s first Epic pores and skin in Paladins, and it’s a terrific one.
There are such a lot of extra nice issues coming to Paladins. Not simply in Future’s Finish, however all through an unimaginable 12 months to come back. But when I instructed you about all of them now, I’d smash all of the enjoyable. Be part of us within the Realm for a 12 months you received’t wish to miss.
