Hi-Rez Studios announced that Paladins is collaborating with Rooster Teeth’s popular RWBY franchise! The collaboration brings Ruby, Weiss, Blake, Yang, Qrow and Salem as skins for existing characters in Paladins this June. Players may purchase Team RWBY through the Crossover Battle Pass while Qrow and Salem are offered in chests and direct purchases.
Read up on more details and check out the reveal trailer:
Six characters from the acclaimed animated series RWBY are joining the fantasy Realm of Paladins as Champion skins. This partnership acknowledges what is now a long-lasting friendship between Hi-Rez and Rooster Teeth, as Paladins met gen:LOCK last year while SMITE x RWBY was Hi-Rez’s first-ever Crossover Battle Pass back in 2019.
This June, Paladins players will be able to play Team RWBY with Blake Belladonna as a Saati skin, Weiss Schnee as the fiery Furia, Yang Xiao Long Imani, and of course Ruby Rose for Vora, armed with her deadly scythe. Even better, uncle Qrow will tag along as a Corvus skin—and their archenemy Salem will try to take over the Realm as a skin for Seris, the oracle of the Abyss.
The four RWBY skins will be part of the new Crossover Pass, while players can unlock Qrow and Salem in a chest as well as in direct purchase. Some characters are voiced by original actresses and the event will also feature a dozen cosmetic items referencing the RWBY universe.
All details will be shared tomorrow on June 1st, at 1 pm, on the Paladins Twitch channel and the RWBY update will go out in June.
Paladins is available now on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC. In case you missed it, the RWBY Ice Queendom anime premieres on July 3rd in Japan and around the world on the Crunchyroll streaming service.
