Paladins is now available for free on the Nintendo Switch

Early last month, just in time for this year's E3, Hi-Rez Studios launched Paladins for the Nintendo Switch. The shooter, which is similar to the more popular Overwatch, is typically free-to-play, but at the time, it was only available on Nintendo's hybrid through the Founder's Pack, which cost $30.

The developers did announce that the free-to-play version would be available later in the summer, and now the time is here, as Paladins can now be downloaded free of charge from the Nintendo eShop, seemingly replacing the paid version.

Just like before, the Nintendo Switch version of the game supports cross-play with Xbox One users, but not the PlayStation 4. The title runs at 60 frames per second, too, which is certainly welcome in a fast-paced shooting game. Paladins is continuously updated with new content, having most recently bumped up to version 1.3, adding a new Champion, a new map, and more changes.

With no known plans for Blizzard's Overwatch to come to Nintendo's hybrid console, this might be closest Switch owners can get to that experience, and being free-to-play makes it an interesting proposition in its own right.
