You can now play Paladins for free on Switch, so if you’ve been holding out for the free-to-play version, now’s your time. Paladins actually launched last month, but it was only available as part of a Founder’s Pack that you were required to purchase. No more. Now you can play the shooter on Switch at no cost by simply downloading it from the eShop.
Paladins is a hero shooter not unlike Overwatch, so if you’re looking for something in that vein on Switch, this could very well be your best option. The game supports crossplay with the Xbox One version of the game (as Sony continues to drag its feet), and it runs at a sleek 60 frames per second.

We gave Paladins a Bronze Award for its exciting matches and interesting blend of MOBA mechanics. There’s deck building in there, as well as a smattering of RTS elements, and of course, the Overwatch inspiration rings through loud and clear.
