The Paladins Eternal Pyre Update has arrived alongside the Eternal Pyte Battle Pass with four new skins to unlock. Furthermore, Hi-Rez is shifting to a faster-paced content schedule for 2021.
Paladins has been happily chugging along and it's just dropped a new chunk of content for players to enjoy. It should be noted that this isn't a huge update that's jam-packed with new content; rather, this particular update focuses on some balance changes and bugfixes while also introducing a new Battle Pass. Still, there are some pretty cool new cosmetics to unlock — check out the Paladins Eternal Pyre Update Trailer to see them in motion!
What's New in the Paladins Eternal Pyre Update?
The big addition in the Paladins Eternal Pyre Update is the brand-new Battle Pass. The Eternal Pyre Battle Pass will give you the opportunity to unlock the following content:
- Four instant unlocks:
- Eternal Retribution Koha
- Forged Destiny, Death Card
- Ikonic Depiction, Spray
- 50% Experience and Gold Boost
- Eternal Conflict Lian (Level 10)
- Eternal Guardian Khan (Level 30)
- Eternal Fervor Jenos (Level 50)
- Dark Retribution Koha (Level 70)
- Dark Conflict Lian (Level 90)
- Dark Guardian Khan (Level 110)
- Dark Fervor Jenos (Level 120)
- A mix of sprays, avatars, and a loading frame
As with most similar Battle Passes, there will be a free track and a paid track. The free track gives you the opportunity to earn 75% of the cost of the Battle Pass, so you don't have to go all out to buy Crystals if you don't mind a bit of grinding.
A couple of new emotes and MVP poses have been added as well, but most of the non-cosmetic content for this update is centered on bug fixes and balance changes; you can read the full Paladins Eternal Pyre Update patch notes for all the fine details.
Paladins Update Cycle Changes for 2021
The launch of a new update and Battle Pass isn't the only big news today. Hi-Rez revealed the patch notes for today's update a few weeks ago and it also included some happy news that should make up for the comparatively small size of this update.
"Paladins will be moving from a 3-month update cycle to a 2-month update cycle in 2021," read the patch notes for the Paladins Eternal Pyre Update. "This first patch of the year – The Eternal Pyre – will be a smaller update focused on new content, while our team works toward our larger Season 4 patch that will drop in early February."
More details on what you can expect for Paladins will be revealed in the Hi-Rez Showcase that will broadcast online tomorrow. If you haven't yet jumped into this great game, you can play Paladins for free on PC and consoles via its official website. The Eternal Pyre Battle Pass, however, will cost you a cool 600 Crystals.
