C’est un grand pas que Hi-Rez franchit pour son shooter Paladins, puisque le studio a conclu un partenariat avec le géant chinois Tencent. Ainsi le jeu va faire son entrée sur l’immense marché que représente la Chine, en espérant pour lui qu’il y trouve sa place comme il l’a trouvée sur les marchés actuels où il est diffusé (et il devrait y arriver).
