Paladins is Adding a Battle Royale Mode Called Paladins: Battlegrounds

Paladins is getting a battle royale mode called, er, Battlegrounds

Calling itself original by being the "first-ever hero-shooter battle royale", Paladins: Battlegrounds will offer up mounts, maps and loot. In addition to several announcements for the studio's key franchises, like Smite, there was also one major noteworthy reveal for Paladins. The MOBA roots can definitely make a difference in the Battle Royale genre; just think about the different roles like supporters and tanks.

Following the enormous success of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the concept of the battle royale has spawned a number of games based on a similar principle.

While Fortnite's own battle royale mode was fairly well-constructed, the Paladins Battle Royale mode needs to both work very well and be balanced properly.

Hi-Rez has also announced that the game will feature maps at over 300 times the square footage of its standard Paladins Siege maps - that's pretty big.

Correction: An earlier version of this article said that Paladins' new hero and Team Deathmatch mode were playable in open beta.
