Paladins Strike is an upcoming multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) that has some impressive graphics for a mobile title, promises real time 5 on 5 multiplayer, and more than 15 characters to choose from. Following an alpha test, the folks at Hi-Rez Studios have decided that a soft launch was the best way to get feedback on their game while testing it, making tweaks and changes prior to a full global launch. The soft launch has begun in Australia, and may expand beyond that prior to launch. There is no word on a release date for Paladins Strike outside of Australia.
Paladins Strike is a MOBA that will be competing in the same space as games like Vainglory, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Heroes Evolved, and Arena of Valor (Strike of Kings). The competitive MOBA space is itself quite competitive right now.
Paladins Strike is free and offers in app purchases. To celebrate Halloween, Paladins Strike has added 3 holiday themed character skins. Here is an excerpt from the game’s Google Play description and a trailer with more information:
