This team – based shooter just left Steam Early Access, and it made 25+ million players strong. It's free to play, even if there are things to buy in the game, anything you can buy can also be bought by playing. Finally.
An example of this is the game's Champions, including "sharpshooting people, mech-riding goblins, mysterious alders and jetpack-clad dragons", all of which can be customized with a tire building system. You can buy these in combat or pay up front to unlock all current and future champions (new ones are added regularly).
Originally seen as an Overwatch clone that can be played for free, Paladins has become so much more. The game has good graphics, good support and excellent gameplay. Teamwork is the key to victory, so choose your Champion wisely and set up a diverse team that communicates well.
Paladins will also serve as a good practice for Paladins: Battlegrounds, an upcoming online game royal game that can be played solo, with a teammate, or in groups of four. It changes royal formula with celebrations, epic objects that provide survival bonuses and cards spread on the battlefield to upgrade your abilities.
Oh, and you become a chicken when you die. So, look forward to it, I guess.
