Paladins gets a new 'Battle Royale' mode and the world keeps turning

Paladins: Battlegrounds has been designed from the ground up to be played in teams, according to Hi-Rez, and players will have to stick together to survive.

Welcome to the first-ever hero-shooter battle royale.

The mode will be played on a large map in 20-minute matches, and players will fight for loot in a number of outposts.

Esports Insider says: We're going to see a whole lot of battle royale type games appear this year trying to grab a slice of the pie that PUBG has beautifully baked this year.

Paladins, which has drawn comparisons to another hero-based shooter, Overwatch, will follow the battle royale gameplay popularized by Playerunknown's Battlegrounds pretty closely. Heroes will be able to hop onto their mounts and start exploring the map, looting all sorts of gear to take on other players.

Hi-Rez Studios has just announced a game called Paladins: Battlegrounds, and if you're a fan of either Overwatch or PUBG, you're going to want to pay attention. Look for this game mode, along with Moji, to hit Paladins' PC version on January 10 and the game's console versions on January 17.

In other Paladins news, Hi-Rez also announced a new team deathmatch mode, a new mobile spinoff called Paladins Strike and a new champion, Moji, who rides a two-headed turtle-like familiar named Po-Li. To prevent itself from being a complete carbon copy of PUBG, Paladins: Battlegrounds has class abilities, team-based gameplay, and mounts.

Developer Hi-Rez Studios is looking to answer that question, with the reveal of Paladins: Battlegrounds. Which consists of 100 players on a huge map, and the last man standing wins.
