Paladins Getting Battle Royale Mode “Battlegrounds”

/ Jan 4th, 2018 No Comments

Paladins: Champions of the Realm

Hi-Rez Studios announced its free-to-play hero shooter Paladins: Champions of the Realm is getting a battle royal mode.

The mode, titled “Battlegrounds,” will release later in 2018.
 

Paladins: Battlegrounds will follow a similar structure to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, a game which surged in popularity over 2017. 100 players will be dropped into a map that is over 300 times the square footage of a normal Siege map in Paladins. Players will fight to the death in hopes of being the last alive as a slow-moving fog reduces the size of the playing field.

“Designed from the ground-up to be played in teams, players must work together to survive in Paladins: Battlegrounds,” says Hi-Rez. “Supports struggle to keep their Front Liners alive, while Damage Champions let the bullets fly and Flanks look for any possible assassination.”

Once players spawn into the map they will hop on mounts to explore the area and loot items across more than four dozen outposts. Zeppelins will also periodically appear to drop legendary gear that will slightly increase the chances of survival. Matches in Battlegrounds mode are expected to last 20 minutes and can be played solo or in squads.

Quick Take

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ success is a feat nearly every publisher and developer has likely taken note of. Since release the game has sold millions of copies and remained in the conversation. Epic Games’ Fortnite implemented a very similar battle royale mode for free and saw it boost interest, player counts, and sales.

The trend is likely to continue over the course of 2018 and beyond but in the case of Paladins, Hi-Rez is taking a risk naming the mode “Battlegrounds.” Publisher Bluehole seemed to consider a lawsuit when Epic released Fortnite’s battle royale mode. How will Bluehole feel about a game releasing a battle royale mode sharing a name with its moneymaker?
