Paladins is Adding a Battle Royale Mode Called Paladins: Battlegrounds

Hi-Rez announced the new game mode at the Hi-Rez Expo, which is now taking place, dubbing this the "first hero shooter battle royale". The MOBA roots can definitely make a difference in the Battle Royale genre; just think about the different roles like supporters and tanks. The free-to-play team-based shooter (whichi boasts over 4 million players and counting) is now joining the battle royale craze.

A new mode is coming to Paladins which seems directly inspired by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

In related news, Hi=Rez also announced a new Team Death Match mode, a new map and there 's also the keynote speech from the expo (see videos below). Will Battle Royale work well with Paladins?




Players will also have the option of tracking zeppelins that will drop legendary weapons and hero abilities - allowing for gameplay that mixes that of PUBG with Overwatch (in theory). Making fights between the 100 players more frequent. The latest addition to the growing list of such games is Paladins, the class-based FPS by Hi-Rez Studios. It will be released sometime in 2018 for PC and consoles. The game's developers have said that the mode was always meant to be a team effort, with players using the abilities of their heroes to claim victory, while also gathering loot from around various bases and finding airdrops that contain loot. The adorable new character will join the game as an assassin-esque Flank champion, and will ride into battle on a two-headed dragon. It will launch alongside the new Trade District map.

Finally, it wouldn't be an Hi-Rez Expo without Hi-Rez Studios partnering up with Twitch to bring in free content to Twitch Prime members. Hi-Rez said that Paladins: Battlegrounds will be built with squads in mind; the hero-based battle royale mode will apparently be a last team standing affair.
