Is Hi-Rez living in Blizzard s shadow?

Hi-Rez, the developers of Smite and Paladins, don t have it easy. They compete head-on with Blizzard s juggernauts; with their fingers stuck in the same hero-shooter-flavoured pies the comparisons are inevitable, and rarely favourable.

Cross-platform play coming to Paladins, Realm Royale and Smite

Two weeks ago, I was sat in a dive bar so scuzzy it was practically underwater. It was there my friend told me he spent nearly all his time playing Paladins on his Xbox, and I learnt two things. 1) Paladins must be bigger than I thought, and 2) platform restrictions can make me sad. Today, in the opening announco-blast of Atlanta’s Hi-Rez Expo, Hi-Rez announced that cross-platform play is coming to Paladins, Realm Royale and Smite. (more…)
