E3 2018: All The Nintendo Switch Games Revealed At Nintendo Direct
Created by GameSpot Staff on
Paladins is a team-based shooter similar to Team Fortress 2 and Overwatch. Gamers play as Champions, powerful heroes who use a mixture of guns and magic to defeat their opponents. Each Champion belongs to one of four classes. Front Line Champions operate as tanks and protect their allies from enemy fire. Damage Champions spearhead offensive assaults with their faster speed and high attack output. Support Champions keep their allies healed up and ready to fight. Flank Champions excel at circumnavigating the battlefield to ambush enemy teams from behind.
Paladins will be free-to-play later this year. Founders get early access, immediately unlock all Champions and their voice packs now and forever, and receive exclusive cosmetics. The game includes:
Fantastic Champions: Paladins is set in a vibrant fantasy world and features a diverse cast of Champions ranging from sharpshooting humans to mech-riding goblins, mystical elves, and jetpack-clad dragons. Each Champion brings a unique set of abilities to the battlefield and new Champions are regularly added to Paladins, keeping the game exciting.
Free-to-play: Paladins is completely Free-to-Play. Anything that affects gameplay can be unlocked simply by playing, with cosmetic items available for purchase.
Deck-building: No matter what your playstyle is, you’ll find it in Paladins. With Paladins' deckbuilding system, you can become an iron sights sniper, a grenade-slinging explosives expert, or a track star with an assault rifle--all as the same Champion. Choose from dozens of cards to customize your abilities and make each Champion your own.
Customize your champion: Ancient Goddess. Interstellar bounty hunter. Cutthroat pirate. Frost giant. You can be all of these and more in Paladins. Choose from hundreds of skins already available in Paladins or find a new favorite in each update.
Accessibility: Paladins can be played from either a first-person or third-person perspective. The controls are simple to grasp for newcomers and shooter veterans alike which makes for an easy pick-up-and-play experience.
