While the game was officially released on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch back in 2018, the game was playable all the way back in 2016 during its Open Beta stage.
For gameplay, Paladins is a first-person hero shooter in the vein of games such as Overwatch and Team Fortress 2. Currently, Paladins has 51 Champions (not counting the upcoming Champion) to choose from which are divided into four classes: Damage, Front Line, Flanker, and Support.
Meanwhile, if you’re a Paladins player and are unfamiliar with Amelia Watson, she is a Virtual YouTuber under Hololive English. Watson debuted back in September 2020, and among her genmates, she is known for being the biggest FPS player. Watson routinely streams FPS games such Apex Legends and Valorant; she has even streamed Paladins earlier this year.
