Normally, champions can be unlocked with gold, in-game earnable currency, or crystals, Paladins
' real-money currency. Champions are also granted to Founder's Pack owners upon release. Cards, which can alter a character's play style, are earned in-game through chests or purchased with the essence currency. Each character has three legendary cards from which players can choose, and these cards offer unique abilities that synchronize with each champion's kit. Players will have access to all of them during the event and can experience the wide variety of different abilities.
The event is live now for Xbox Live Gold members and will run until Sunday, October 1st at 9 p.m. PT.
