Review – Paladins (via High-Rez Studios)

My first review of a FPS. This game was great to get into. I haven’t done a first person shooter in forever and this was a great game to get my feet wet. Very much like Overwatch, this game throws you right into a tutorial to get started, teaches you the basic gameplay and then you can jump right in.

A couple things I learned later were the epic cards that you can choose from to customize your character. Over time you earn more points and levels up so you can use even more powerful cards to make your toon legendary!

See my first pass after the jump:

I did very well on my first pass. Even getting some MULTI-KILLS!

This game is certainly a roll GREED. Enjoy it. Play it. Win the day!

About Paladins – Champions of the Realm

Enter a fantasy world of ancient technology in Paladins, a team-based shooter with strategy elements and deep character customization. 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.

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, jetpack-clad dragons, and bomb golems. 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.

Card Mastery
Players collect unique cards for each Champion and build decks that empower their personal play styles. Gamers start with a basic deck of cards and unlock additional cards as they play, opening the door to creative new decks that radically change how Champions play. Players may further tweak their decks in-game with Burn Cards, making themselves stronger or counteracting opponents’ strategies.

Level Up
No matter how players choose to play Paladins, they will gain experience points as they play. As they level up their account, master each Champion, and complete daily quests/achievements players will receive Radiant Chests and Gold which can be used to unlock additional cards, costumes, and weapon skins. The more players play, the more unique their Champions will become.

Accessibility
Paladins is played from a first-person perspective. The controls are simple to grasp for newcomers and shooter veterans alike which makes for an easy pick-up-and-play experience, on either controller or keyboard and mouse.
