Paladins Strike admits to unwittingly using Overwatch art assets for promo


Someone done goofed up over at Hi-Rez.

Players noticed that background artwork for the studio’s mobile title Paladins Strike bears a striking resemblance to Overwatch’s Lijiang Tower. And when we say “striking resemblance,” we mean “it’s the exact same piece of art.”

According to the studio, this was the result of poor quality control and outsourcing: “Thank you for your diligence in pointing this out. This art was created by a overseas partner studio for Paladins Strike and had not much in the way of oversight in its content creation by anyone internally at Hi-Rez. We will be looking into this immediately.”

See the comparison for yourself after the break!
