A five vs five match with super powers–sounds like things are going to get hectic! Paladins is a free-to-play team based shooter with its own personality, boasting a cast of 32 characters each with their own individual style, it throws you into a battle where the only real ally you have is your own gun.

Paladins cast of characters have individual styles that can be altered by their unique “deck” system which allows the player to customize their abilities. The game has three gamemodes: onslaught, payload, and siege. Onslaught is a “king-of-the-hill”-style gamemode with a team fighting for control over a point; payload is a gamemode where teams take turns defending and pushing a cart to the enemy team’s base while they try to push it back and wait for the timer to run down; and siege is a mixture of the two.

Paladin’s combat is fluid and full of action, every moment being as intense as the next. This game is a really good choice for people who want a new style of shooter.
