Paladins: Champions of the Realm is an online video game of shooter hero Hi-Rez Studios. The game was developed by Evil Mojo Games, an in-house Hi-Rez studio, and was released in 2018 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Paladins: Champions of the Realm takes place in the sci-fi world of "Dungeonpunk". There are elements of both fiction and science fiction, including medieval soldiers who use guns such as rifles and assault rifles instead of swords.
In the world of paladins, there is a clash of two factions; magistrate and paladins. Champions were recruited to reduce casualties to regular foot soldiers. The champions would be considered "special forces" because they are more effective in combat than the ordinary soldier. Not all champions are committed. There were several who did not choose sides during the war, preferring to contract both of them and make them mercenaries. The rest of these special forces were committed by the faction, whether magistrate or paladin / resistance. There are also smaller factions in the game, "Abyss", "Thousand Hands" and "Pyre".
