OverviewOverview

Paladins: Champions of the Realm is a free online shooting game, like Overwatch that lets you play as different heroes in the battles. It's set in a world combining fantasy and science fiction, including medieval-looking soldiers who use ranged weapons such as shotguns and assault rifles instead of swords.

You start by choosing a type of hero (Front Line, Damage, Support, and Flank) before heading into online shooting battles. It's a team game so players must rely on strategy, character knowledge, coordination, and collaboration to win. There is text and voice chat to communicate.

The main Paladins mode is two teams of 5 racing to capture the map's central capture point. Teams battle over a larger area add more strategy to the game. There are battles where the first to get 40 kills wins.

Content Rating

This game was rated PEGI 12 for frequent non-realistic violence against human-like characters. The game takes place in a fantastical, brightly-coloured setting. Playable characters are equipped with cartoonish weapons, which have similar functions to shotguns, rifles, rocket launchers, flamethrowers, and so on. Characters do not react physically to individual strikes, though there may be a small red blood effect when they are hit. Health bars appear over characters’ heads and will decrease with each blow. When their bar runs out, characters fall limply to the ground. After a short time, their bodies disappear completely.
Secondary issues/information. The game features online playing capability, which may involve real-time interaction with other players.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
