Test Chamber – How Much Is Paladins Like Overwatch?

by Suriel Vazquez on Sep 29, 2016 at 09:15 AM

In the world of competitive games, you don't want to be a clone. Players' time is too valuable to waste investing it on a me-too product. But that's the rap Paladins has been getting in its Early Access phase; people are comparing it (not so favorably) to Overwatch, so Dan Tack and I decided we'd give the game a shot and see just how similar the two titles were.

As it turns out, it does feel like Overwatch, but it also borrows from several other popular competitive games, like Counter-Strike, Dota 2, and Heroes of the Storm. But don't all games borrow from others in some way?What's that saying about good artists versus great ones?

Anyway, you can watch us play a match of Paladins and take a look at the game's systems and options in the video below.
