Paladins: Battlegrounds Announced

With the insane amount of increasing popularity PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has managed to garner, multiplayer online battle royale has become the new obsession of gamers. Another renowned online shooter game is 2016's Overwatch from Blizzard Entertainment. There is another lesser known yet trendy hero shooter game on Steam from developer Hi-Rez Studios called Paladins: Champions of the Realm. The only difference is that people are not overhyped about Paladins like they are about PUBG or Overwatch.

Paladins: Battlegrounds Announced

Recently, the creators of Paladins have announced a new battle royale mode for this fantasy hero-based shooter called "Paladins: Battlegrounds". Hi-Rez Studios have already released an official trailer for Paladins: Battlegrounds game mode for the free-to-play game.

As for multiplayer online battle royale goes, a maximum of 100 players will hunt down each other in a large map and loot whatever they can as they explore the area in Paladins: Battlegrounds. The hustle will go on until there is a last team of Champions or a single Champion remains standing. A new "Team Deathmatch" is announced as well as a new Champion named Moji and a mobile game, Paladins Strike.

From the very beginning of their run, Paladins has always been compared to Blizzard's Overwatch for their similarities and now they are about to closely adapt aspects of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Plus, there is the name "Battlegrounds", which clearly draws comparison towards the game. Hi-Rez begs to differ on this issue because, Paladins: Battlegrounds will be more like a last team standing type of play. However, dropping from sky and looting gears in between battle remains almost the same.

Hi-Rez Studios presents, Paladins is already available for free-to-play worldwide on Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Paladins: Battlegrounds is a battle royale game mode for the game which will be accessible sometime around 2018 on all existing platforms.
