ATLANTA – NOVEMBER 10 – Today, Hi-Rez’s fantasy team shooter Paladins released its latest Update ‘Absolution’ consecrating Azaan the Eternal as the latest playable Champion of the Realm.
Forged in the crucible of the Pyre's flames as the embodiment of all that persists, Azaan cares not for friend or foe, only for the complete eradication of the Abyss. On the battlefield, his fully armored body and blazing wings are an intimidating presence.
Here is Azaan’s reveal trailer.
Slinging a huge flame-wreathed hammer, Azaan can erect a holy Sanctuary to bring salvation to allies, providing them cover and obstructing lines of sight. Alternatively, these uncompromising walls can entrap vulnerable enemies and bring them grim deliverance.
Azaan is fueled by Ire through his passive ability. His wrath ever increases through prolonged battle, giving him passive benefits and augmenting his abilities.
With his ultimate, Azaan takes to the sky and slams his hammer on the ground as if delivering a sentence – then he soars down to carry it out himself.
Dark Depths Event Pass
Venture many leagues under the waves with Paladins’ latest Event Pass – Dark Depths. Four subaquatic skins and twenty other thematic rewards can be unlocked simply by playing matches, including some for free such as Royal Mark Tyra.
The Dark Depths Event Pass also kicks off another cycle of the popular Trials of the Realm. A new feature this year, Trials are engaging in-game challenges that unlock weekly. Upon completion, players unlock currency and cosmetics, including this time Azaan’s first MVP pose and the player title ‘Mass of Tentacles’.
Brody the Shark Mount
Brand-new Brody the Shark is a Mount and as such, he positively is a flying shark. Brody comes in the wake of his predecessor, the Sky Whale Mount, who was received with unanimous love from the community earlier this year.
Brody the Shark is available right now for Direct Purchase or in a Chest.
Last Chance for Season 4 Ranked Rewards
Prestigious rewards can be earned through Paladins’ ranked play, and the ongoing Season 4 will come to a close after this ‘Absolution’ Update.
Rewards include well-established Loading Frames displaying the rank achieved during the season. Those who have played a hundred ranked games gain access to a most intimidating player title: ‘World Ender’. After a hundred victories, players receive an Epic skin as a testimony to their talent: Berserker Torvald.
Save The Date – The Hi-Rez Showcase event is taking place on January 6, 2022, featuring the biggest announcements and celebrations around Paladins as well as a full program of other Hi-Rez games and World Championship esports. More details can be found here.
