Paladins: Champions of the Realm.
Paladins: Champions of the Realm (Paladins as a shorthand) is a free-to-play online team-based game, a hero-based and objective-focused first-person shooter. One of the main draws of the game is the card system: as a player progresses through a match, they will randomly draw and select cards from their character’s deck to augment their health, damage and abilities. Through a unique collectible card system, players can amplify and augment a character’s core set of abilities to play exactly how they want to play.

In summary, Paladins is a fast paced and fun game to play either alone or with friends. You’re sure to have an excellent time. The gameplay which is still being refined feels pretty good. Most of the characters are unique and interesting. The game plays and feels like a first person Smite (Hi-Rez's flagship) while 'borrowing' half-baked mechanics, characters, and ideas from other more successful games.
