    PTS Instructions

    EDIT: Players can unlock Covert Ops Lex through Paladins Strike now, however the Skin Collection itself will not be available until an Update in the near future.


    Welcome to OB70!

    After millions of matches, Khan’s assault on Ascension Peak is coming to a end. So If you wanted to unlock that Soul Eater Jenos skin, I hope you’re reading this before the update has released!

    We’re releasing the first of our three Battle Passes for 2018 in this update. The Battle Pass is packed full of Skins and new content (like animated sprays!) for everyone to enjoy, and the more you play, the more you unlock.

    The last few patches saw major balance changes, so we’re giving a light touch to balance this patch as we watch the meta develop. The latest Champion to hit the realm, Khan, is seeing a few buffs that will allow him to better defend himself in the heat of battle.

    Have fun in OB70, Champions!


    The Siege of Ascension Peak Event will be coming to an end in OB70.

    • The Siege of Ascension Peak event game mode will no longer be playable in OB70
