Paladins has carved out a solid niche for itself as a free-to-play alternative to Overwatch. The team-based shooter thrives on its large, colorful cast of characters, and it’s about to get bigger. During the Day of the Devs broadcast, developer Hi-Rez announced that the cast of Roosterteeth’s gen:LOCK is coming to Paladins as playable characters. That sure came out of nowhere!
