Cross play and Cross-progression arrives on Paladin with the release of Version 2.02 patch

We’re improving quality throughout Season 2 with The Hunt: an initiative focused on process and quality of life improvements, bug fixes, and polish. Along with extended PTS, we’ve also expanded our programming team and devoted 20-40% of each development cycle to polish. The Hunt’s mission is simple: We want to end 2019 with Paladins in a better state than it’s ever been before.

Cross-play and cross-progression have arrived! Champions on numerous platforms across the globe will now be able to group up and play like never before. Join your friends and follow the Paladins to the Shattered Desert, and perhaps together, you’ll be able to stop the End Times before they begin…

  • You can set your input method and preferences in Settings

Champions and Founder’s Packs will be available on all linked platforms in 2.02, and all other DLC purchased on Xbox will become cross-platform in 2.03.

New Siege Map: Shattered Desert

It was here that shards of the broken moon fell, destroying all that they touched. With the help of Jenos and Imani, the Paladins have followed the Magistrate to the Shattered Desert and now battle in the shadows of ancient ruins. Mysterious portals radiate otherworldly power. Could these portals be the source of the ancient evil known as the Darkness?

New Event: End Times

End Times Promo.png

A large tear in reality has appeared among the ruins of the Shattered Desert, distorting the region in strange ways. Drawn to this anomaly, both the Paladins and Magistrate have sent their forces to claim its unknown power.

Join the fray as both factions battle in the all-new End Times game mode. Players will choose from a selection of either Paladins or Magistrate Champions, as well as several neutral characters; ownership of Champions will not matter for this mode. Do your best to maintain control of the strange tear, but be aware that its unstable nature distorts the world in a new way wherever it relocates.
