After spending what feels like forever in open beta (if forever began May of 2016), Paladins is officially set to launch on May 8th, in just six whole days.
For two weeks thereafter, Hi-Rez studios will be celebrating the release with plenty of events, and a fair share of giveaways. Let us all rejoice.
For starters – anyone who played in beta (or signs up for the game in the days leading up to launch) will receive 200 free crystals. That may not sound like much, but Hi-Rez welcome over 25 million players over the past couple years, that amounts to about $100 million dollars worth of free crystals.
In addition to that, from today until May 7th, all champions are available to play. There will be more as the launch progresses, including contests, giveaways, and in-game events.
