Paladins Adds Io, The Shattered Goddess, In Today's Sun & Moon Update

A new Support Champion has joined the Paladins roster: Io, the Shattered Goddess.

"For eons, Io watched over the Realm," game designer Kevin Meier in the official announcement. "But then disaster struck: The Darkness smothered the goddess's light, and shattered the moon that hangs above our battlefields. Pieces of the moon fell to the Shattered Desert, where Io's faithful watched over them. They kept vigil for the shattered goddess, praying that one day she would return."


Hi-Rez Studios has teased Io's return for some time. Spirit wolves roam the Shattered Desert map, and they included a statue depicting the goddess at the center of the new Siege map, Bazaar. It seems Io's time to shine has finally arrived.

An agile combatant, Io summons the magical Light Bow, unleashing torrents of crescent arrows. She can heal her allies by channeling the power of moonlight and even alter the force of gravity by calling upon the moon itself. Despite this devastating ability, it's Luna, Io's spirt fox companion, who steals the show. "As you play Io, you'll summon Luna, tell her where to move, and command her to attack," revealed Meier. "Luna will fight alongside you, rushing towards the foes you target and stunning them. Depending on how you play with Paladins' Talent system, Luna can also heal your allies or provide Io a second life."


Io launched today alongside the Sun & Moon Update, which also introduces the Shore Patrol Battle Pass. You'll receive instant rewards for purchasing the pass, including the Shore Patrol Kinessa skin and Beach Bash Loading Frame. By leveling the pass, you can earn additional goodies (over 100 in total) like the Shore Patrol Koga skin, which unlocks at level 10. 

The Shore Patrol Battle Pass costs 600 Crystals or you can purchase the Battle Passport for 1500 Crystals which unlocks the Battle Pass and the next 30 Battle Pass Levels.
