As a quick overview, Paladins is a multiplayer shooting video game that consists of 24 playable Champions; each of which can be altered with different offensive and defensive capabilities. Players are then free to battle across a plethora of unique game modes, all free of charge.
Not only did Hi-Rez Studios make this much-awaited announcement, they also revealed a Paladins tournament. The best players around the world can win a free trip to Spain to try and secure a $50,000 prize. However, only the elite will be entered in.

In order to secure a spot in this tournament, players must qualify through open brackets. These open brackets will be held from May 20, 2017 until June 25, 2017.
