Is Paladins of the Realm a ripoff of Overwatch? - briefly
(hx) 09:38 AM EDT - Sep,20 2016 - Post a comment / read (1)
Paladins is a First Person Shooter game developed by Hi-Rez Studios, creators of the MOBA SMITE. The game is rooted in a colorful sci-fi fantasy setting featuring Champions, playable characters that have their own unique fire-function and abilities. Combat in Paladins is also nearly entirely skillshot-based, meaning projectiles can be dodged. Although each champion has its own personality and core skills, to get around Paladins' Maps the real character variation comes from a deckbuilding Cards System that augments a champion in different ways.

Here's the official response of Hi-Rez CEO about Paladins/Overwatch similarities.

Some people have asked us about why we 'copy' the overwatch classes. Here is a bit more clarification:

This is more of a reddit response, but I can no longer post on reddit)

Games are inspired by other games, especially since there are a limited number of options in some genres like FPS games. Some people will not stop the spam about where Paladins got most of it’s inspiration from (Global Agenda in the case of Paladins).

Paladins is most often compared to Overwatch, and while Overwatch is a great game it’s not where Paladins got it’s inspiration (although we do reference it now since it’s in the same genre). Here is a bit of background to give you a better sense of where

Valve developed Team fortress 2 in 2007, widely believed to be the first new generation hero based shooter game (Obviously there was Team Fortress first, Tribes, and many other types of FPS games before TF2)

Hi-Rez developed Global Agenda and released in 2010 (development started 2005). Global Agenda major inspirations were City of Heros, Team Fortress 2, and Tribes. Paladins was started late in 2013 as a reboot to Global Agenda PvP.

Overwatch was announced by blizzard at the end of 2014 and released 2016

Some basic comparisons:

Overwatch offers 3 game modes; Escort, Control, Assault. All three game modes were available in both TF2 and Global Agenda (along with many other game modes) TF2: Global Agenda:

Ultimate system was found in both TF2 and Global Agenda. TF2 has one class (Medic) with an ‘Ultimate’ that builds up Global Agenda has class based ‘ultimates’ with buildups known as team boosts (8 different ultimates)

Here are some class examples in Overwatch, you can find similar references for almost all hero abilities in Overwatch within TF2, GA, and popular games like Smite/Dota/CoD/etc.

Rocket Launcher Class: TF2 (2007) - Soldier Class with Rocket Launcher Global Agenda (2010) - Assault class with Jetpack and Rocket Launcher Overwatch (2015) - Pharah with Jetpack and Rocket Launcher

Sniper Class: TF2 (2007) - Sniper with zoom and power up Global Agenda (2010) - Sniper with zoom, power up, poison mine, and an enemy wall hack ultimate Overwatch (2015) - Widowmaker Sniper with zoom, power up, poison mine, and an enemy wall hack ultimate

Turret Class: TF2 (2007) - Engineer with turret and shotgun Global Agenda (2010) - Robotics with turret and shotgun and hammer Overwatch (2015) - Torbjorn Engineer with turret and shotgun and hammer

Healing Medic: TF2 (2007) - Medic with medi gun Global Agenda (2010) - Flying medic with a biofeed back beam
