Working on top of the strong and fairly balanced foundation of a free-to-play hero shooter, Paladins' capacity for experimentation is its greatest strength. Even after over 300 hours of exhilarating battles and strategic planning, champions continue to find a way to offer new gameplay experiences. Whether it's the main mode that encapsulates the teamwork aspect or the character designs that immediately flow with creativity, Paladins: Champions of the Realm clearly stands out in the midst of competition.

Paladins shouldn't be seen just as the free alternative to Overwatch but, instead, should be praised as one of the best multiplayers nowadays. A great and addictive game that will surely entertain every kind of player thanks to its accessibility and well-developed mechanics.
