Here’s something you should know about me: I don’t play shooters. That is, until today. Because of my extreme love for the Nintendo Switch, I have been trying out a lot of games that I wouldn’t normally play. That brings me to Paladins: Champions of the Realm. While the game has existed on other consoles for a few years, this week brought the premiere on the Switch. Developed by Hi-Rez Studios, Paladins: Champions of the Realm is a first-person hero shooter game that is free to play! That’s right, free!
Much like games like Fortnite, the companies make their money off of customization purchases, new characters, etc. For me, it was the perfect way to try a new game without having anything to lose but time. I’m happy to report that I absolutely loved it. I consider myself to be a seasoned gamer, but only in certain categories of games. This opens up a whole new world for me now.
The graphics look absolutely fantastic on the Switch, and so far the game has run quite smoothly for me. It’s been fun trying out new classes of characters and different abilities. The landscapes are also really fun and stunning, to be honest. I highly suggest giving Paladins: Champions of the Realm a try. You’ve got nothing to lose and all the fun gaming time to gain.
