Paladins Announces Team Based Battle Royale Mode

05 January 2018

Hi-Rez Studios announced today that their free-to-play, hero-based shooter Paladins will add a battle royale-style mode, the first ever for the hero shooter genre, under the very familiar title Paladins: Battlegrounds. The bad news is that it'll probably require a lot more coordination than most Paladins players are used to.

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.

A new Paladins Battle Royale mode has once again followed the leader in the battle royale game type that was popularized by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

The mode, which is even called "Battlegrounds", will launch sometime this year. Will Battle Royale work well with Paladins? They'll have mounts just like in Paladins, and be able to explore and loot through various outposts as well as tracking zeppelins that drop legendary gear - much like the airdrops in PUBG. It will see 100 players gathered on a map over 300 times the size of a typical Paladins Siege map, looting gear and eliminating each other.

As you may have guessed, more and more developers are now jumping on the battle royale mode (after the huge success of PUBG).

Team Deathmatch is exactly what it sounds like: a mode where your only objective is killing enemy heroes. Meet Moji, the name of the new champion rides into battle onto a two-=headed dragon which you feed snacks to reload it's magical energy. It will be available alongside a new map, Trade District. Mounts will also be usable. Meet Moji, the newest member of the Flank class.

During a press conference at HRX 2018, Hi-Rez Studios CEO Erez Goren confirmed that the developer will have games coming to the Nintendo Switch soon. With the console players getting it a week later on January 17.
