The free-to-play shooter lands on Switch with cross-play.
It’s happening. The free-to-play game Paladins 2 is coming to the Nintendo Switch on June 12. Announced via the official website, the team has been hard working on a Switch port, delivering 60 frames-per-second on handheld and docked with the power of Unreal Engine 3.
Players on Switch will be able to cross-play with Xbox owners in matches, something the team has been wanting to do for a while.
While Paladins is a F2P title, similar to Fortnite, you can buy accessories for your character.
We’re excited to announce that Paladins is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 12!
Now you can experience the Champions and action-packed gameplay you know and love, all in the palm of your hand.
We’ve been working with Nintendo over the past few months to develop Paladins for the handheld, portable console – and it feels awesome. Paladins on Switch will run at 60 frames-per-second thanks to a custom in-house port of Unreal Engine 3, offering the full Paladins experience in both handheld and docked modes.
The Nintendo Switch version of Paladins will also feature crossplay multiplayer between Xbox One and Nintendo Switch players. Our community has asked for crossplay compatibility for a long time, so we’re thrilled to offer this brand-new feature that will enhance the Paladins experience for both players bases.
Pre-orders are available now! Pick up the Founder’s Pack from the Nintendo eShop to start playing on June 12. The Founder’s Pack includes all 36 Champions currently in Paladins, all future Champions, and a number of Founder Exclusive cosmetic items. We plan to offer a free-to-play version of Paladins on Nintendo Switch later this summer.
Please join us in welcoming Nintendo fans to the Paladins family. We’ll see you in the Realm, on-the-go!
