In Paladins, players fight their way through a fantasy world known as the Realm. There, they compete in competitive team-based multiplayer matches, fighting over gold and mysterious crystals.

Players take control of one of 17 Champions in every match, ranging from a deadly sniper to a mech-riding goblin, a mystical elf, a jetpack-clad dragon, and a bomb golem. New Champions are added to the realm regularly, keeping gameplay fresh and exciting.

Each Champion can be customized to fit each player’s unique playstyle through an innovative collectible card system. Players build their own decks of cards to amplify and augment each Champion’s core set of abilities, empowering their personalized playstyles.
