Choose from dozens of cards to customize your abilities and make each Champion your own.

• Accessibility: Running at 60 FPS, Paladins can be played from either a first-person or third-person perspective. The controls are simple to grasp for newcomers and shooter veterans alike.

•Gather Your Squad: Grab your friends and team up! Plus, with cross-platform play between the Nintendo Switch™ system and Xbox One, you’ll always have someone to compete against!
