Hi-Rez Studios has announced that its free-to-play multiplayer first person shooter, Paladins is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The game has been available to PC owners for two weeks and while it has been compared to Overwatch, has garnered an impressive following of its own.
Hi-Rez co-founder Todd Harris said
We’ve been overwhelmed by PC gamers’ response to Paladins so far but the number of tweets, e-mails, and posts from gamers demanding Paladins on their favorite console has been equally overwhelming.
YouTuber videogamedunkey made a humorous video of the similarities between Paladins and Overwatch but don’t let it put you off trying out the game on PC or on consoles when it becomes available.
Of course, Overwatch isn’t a unique idea in itself and takes a lot from Team Fortress which originally started life as a mod for Quake before being picked up by Valve who released Team Fortress Classic and most recently Team Fortress 2.
