Hi-Rez is not above tooting its own horn, especially when it has a huge number to celebrate. Today the studio announced that Paladins has already accumulated four million players during its open beta. This number doesn’t include those expected to come when the multiplayer shooter arrives on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 soon.
There’s even more good news coming Paladins’ way. The game is supposed to expand into China thanks to a partnership with Tencent, and Hi-Rez has plans to host an Evie’s Winter Classic tournament over the next month with a prize pool of $10,000 per world region.
Hi-Rez COO Todd Harris says that the game has been booming since its Steam debut earlier this fall: “The worldwide response to Paladins has been incredible. It has been thrilling to see the game grow week-over-week since the Steam open beta began in mid-September, as well as to hear all of the player feedback, which we are constantly using to improve the game.”
