Nintendo Switch free games UPDATE: Paladins arrives on Switch eShop with crossplay – | Gaming

Having released as a closed early access game for the Nintendo console, it has now been announced that fans can grab the -to-play title from the eShop.

Paladins initially released in early access on the Nintendo Switch on June 12, during E3 2018.

And until now, players could only gain access to the game by purchasing a Founder's Pack.

However, today saw Paladins on the Nintendo Switch go live, with Hi-Rez Studios confirming that it now supports 60 frames-per-second multiplayer gameplay, delivering the full Paladins experience in both handheld and docked modes.

Something that might also please fans is the news that Paladins on Switch also support crossplay multiplayer with Xbox One.

Having access to another console means better server support when it comes to finding players to join.

“We are thrilled that so many members of the Nintendo Switch community have already entered

the Realm and fallen in love with Paladins,” said Chris Larson, Executive Producer on Paladins.

“It's incredibly exciting to open the gates and welcome all Nintendo Switch players to Paladins.”

Alongside today's free-to-play transition, Paladins also released its newest Champion: The ninja Koga.

“Koga was the finest ninja in the Thousand Hands Guild — before he was betrayed and cast out

by his master Zhin.

“Koga wields both dual SMGs and claws, climbing behind enemy lines before reigning destruction.

“Koga is the first champion with no cooldowns on his abilities; instead, he spends energy to use abilities whenever he sees an opportunity to strike.”

And Paladins isn't the only free-to-play game coming to the Nintendo Switch.


Digital Extremes revealed that its popular cooperative online action game is in development for Nintendo Switch.

This was one of the big highlights of Tennocon 2018, which confirmed that Digital Extremes has partnered with developer Panic Button.

This is pretty significant as Panic Button have overseen mega ports like DOOM, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus and Rocket League in the past.

Here's a quick summary from the Warframe support team on why the free-to-play game might be worth a look when it does:

“With more than 38 million registered players worldwide, the cooperative, free-to-play hit Warframe is a third-person online action game set in an evolving sci-fi world soon to be available on Nintendo Switch.

“Warframe gives players the chance to master the Warframe armour as the enigmatic Tenno, a race of ancient warriors wielding blade and gun, who are awakened from centuries of cryo-sleep by the mysterious guide, Lotus, to restore order throughout the Solar System.

“Warframe features more than 35 unique Warframes, hundreds of weapons and thousands of customisation options, the ability to upgrade weapons armour and items using a flexible mod system, and the ability to join clans, nurture pets, and explore massive new open worlds.”

There's no current release date set for Warframe on Nintendo Switch, so fans will need to keep an eye out for further news.
