There’s no denying that the Battle Royale genre of games is the next big thing. Popularised by PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), the Battle Royale genre sees a large group of players fight it out to the death until 1 is left standing. The newest game to step into the realm of Battle Royale games is Paladins.
Announced earlier today, Paladins is set to receive an update that will bring about a new gamemode: Paladins Battlegrounds. The gamemode, as you’d expect, will see 100 players battling it out until only 1 is left alive. Hi-Rez Studios are calling the new gamemode “the first-ever hero-shooter battle royale.” Check out the announcement video below.
For those unaware, Paladins is a free-to-play Hero Shooter available on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One that has drawn a lot of similarities to Overwatch. Presumably, the Battle Royale mode of the game will also be a free experience. The new mode is set to release in 2018 but no official date has been revealed.
