The newest Paladins Update brings a lot of new content for gamers, including our very first crossover with the hit Rooster Teeth show, Gen: Lock!
For this patch, the Event Pass has been converted into a Crossover Pass that increases the number of reward tiers and includes five new premium skins based on iconic heroes from the series. The dagger throwing Maeve becomes the vicious tech-savvy Cammie, while the deadly sword-wrestler Zhin takes on a rebellious streak as Kazu. The cocky sniper Kinessa transforms into the elite crackshot Valentina and the headhunter Lex becomes the impressive Yasamin. Eventually battle-hardened Viktor takes on as team leader Chase and completes the Gen: Lock list.
Players will also unlock rewards like Death Stamps, Sprays, and Avatars, all centered around the world of Gen: Lock and featuring other fan-favorite characters like Doctor Rufus Weller and Nugget!
In addition to all of this content, the Gen: Lock patch also features Paladins’50th champion, the Leipori magician Rei. A scholar of the House of Aico and a loyal right-hand man to Lian, Rei is a support champion who is not afraid to be on the front lines with her allies and keep them safe. Rice’s core gameplay revolves around her Spirit Link ability, which allows her to bind a sustained stream of magic to an ally or enemy. However, players need to be careful about their positioning, as the connection will be broken if they move too far from their target.
Pairing with an enemy will cause them to take damage over time and slow their movement speed, while pairing with an ally will cause them to heal and generate an ultimate charge over time. Rice’s alternate fire heals an ally before jumping to other allies nearby, giving a greater healing bonus when one is bound to Rei. Rip Envelop ability limits the damage both herself and her allied ally can take for a short time and grants a movement bonus, perfect for getting out of the fight or getting into the fray. Rice’s ultimate is Revive, which makes her allied allies invulnerable for a short time before they heal both the ally and herself heavily after the effect is complete.
The Paladins The team is excited to hit such a big milestone for the game, but we haven’t stopped there. This patch also shows the return of the Bounty Store with a new coat of paint. Players receive bounty coins while playing Paladins
