Paladins' "Future's End" content now available

The future is now

There is no light in the future, only an all-consuming Darkness. The Realm is lost.

Atlas was born into this dark future as the son of a legendary Judge. Each day he fought to survive, and each night he found solace in stories of the Realm that was. These stories gave Realmkind hope, but their final stand against the Darkness failed tragically. All hope was lost… but one.

Atlas studied old books of Crystal magic and mastered the control of time. He researched old tales of what started all this, of how the world had fallen. And then Atlas stepped into the past, determined to save the Realm — and stop the Darkness — by changing the course of history.

Hi-Rez Studios President tells Sony it's time to 'stop playing favorites,' open up cross-platform play for all games

There are certain games available right now that allow for cross-platform play on all consoles. For a very long time, Sony blocked cross-platform play on PS4 with Switch/Xbox One users. That eventually changed after fans complained quite loudly, and Epic managed to reverse Sony's original decision on Fortnite. The thing is, not all games get access to the same cross-platform options.

For example, Hi-Rez Studios' titles (SMITE, Paladins, Realm Royale) don't have full cross-platform play. Hi-Rez Studios President Stewart Chisam wants Sony to stop holding them back and open up full cross-platform play, so their fans can enjoy games together with other Switch/Xbox One/PS4 users. You can see Mr. Chisam's comments below.

Paladins dev blog - Cross-play and Cross-progressions update 2.02

The Paladins dev team has shared another dev blog detailing their work on cross-play and cross-progression. Check out the full blog below.

It’s been so exciting to pioneer cross-progression and cross-play, and we’ve made amazing progress so far. We’re so excited to get this feature live and out to as many players as possible, but we don’t want to rush it.

In 2019, we’re more focused on polish than ever before. We want to do it right, not do it quick, and we’re going to need a little more time to properly execute this massive leap forward.

We want to make sure that we’re able to introduce features that you’ve requested and will make cross-play the best experience it can be, including:

Voice chat for every player on your team, regardless of platform
Matchmaking by input type, regardless of platform
Keyboard and mouse support for Xbox
Fully functional cross friends list
We expect cross-play across Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch to release with all of these features in Update 2.02. We’re also targeting a 2.02 release for cross-progression across PC and Xbox.

Thanks so much for your patience and support–we know these features will be worth the wait!

We’re also happy to announce the start of Season 2, featuring a reworked Ranked system, a major overhaul to Talents and Loadouts, and plethora of new Champion balance. Enter a fresh new Realm and experience Paladins like never before!

Some Paladins players experiencing a motion controls glitch

Here's an odd situation for Paladins players on Switch. Some people have noticed that the options for motion controls have completely disappeared. They can't be used and there's no settings for them in the options menu. Then after a crash or a reboot, the options reappear. The dev team is currently looking into this issue, as they currently have no clue as to what's causing it.
