Paladins Jumps on the Battle Royale Bandwagon with Awfully Familiar Battlegrounds Mode

  • Just when you thought you could resist the battle royale craze

A major variation is that Paladins champions have class abilities and, in Paladins: Battlegrounds, players will have mounts. The YouTube description for the Paladins: Battlegrounds trailer reads, "Welcome to the first-ever hero-shooter battle royale".

Everything from the concept to its name sees Paladins Battlegrounds wearing its inspiration on its sleeve, and considering that Bluehole previously called out Fortnite Battle Royale developers Epic Games for "copying" their idea, we imagine that Hi-Rez Studios' efforts won't be without scrutiny. Will Battle Royale work well with Paladins? The maps are estimated to be roughly 300 times the size of the standard Paladins Siege map. The last team standing wins the game in the 100-player mode.

Paladins has more of a fantasy setting than either PUBG or Overwatch, and could offer a good alternative for players looking to scratch that sort of itch in their Battle Royale/Hero Shooter genres.

Correction: An earlier version of this article said that Paladins' new hero and Team Deathmatch mode were playable in open beta. It will launch alongside the new Trade District map. Moji is a bit on the diminutive side, but she'll ride into battle aboard a two-headed dragon mount.

Besides the announcement of new game modes to Paladins, you can also expect a new hero to be added to the game. That mode, which is free, has become wildly popular in the months since its release. According to the developer, 2018 will be just as fresh with content, evidenced by the Battlegrounds and Team Deathmatch modes and the new hero that were announced during today's conference.
