Paladins Announces Battle Royale Game Mode, 'Battlegrounds'

Just when you thought you could resist the battle royale craze

Hi-Rez has also revealed that Paladins will add a battle royale-type game mode soon, a first for the Switch if the game makes the jump.

The new mode will largely follow the archetype of other battle royale games, dropping 100 players into a large map where they will search for loot and fight to the death.

While we don't have official gameplay available (yet), the new mode will be available in 2018 for free to anyone who plays Paladins which is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Players will spawn on a massive map that's said to be over 300 times the square footage of a typical Paladins map seen in Siege mode.

Also involved: Timberlake's wife, Jessica Biel-in a cowboy hat, naturally-and son, Silas . Actually, looks like the singer is skipping over country and going straight to woodsman.

The good news about Paladins: Battlegrounds is that players will probably get more mileage from their mounts in this mode.

It's no secret that the battle royale genre dominated the industry in 2017 thanks to smash hits like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite.

In addition to the core shooter experience, Paladins also offers deep strategy and in-match character progression through decks of collectible cards, which amplify and augment a character's core set of abilities.

Raiders are going all in to try and bring back Jon Gruden
An ownership source said owners might not be so quick to approve the deal, because they wouldn't want to establish a precedent. This team needs a shot in the arm in a big way, especially since it will soon be leaving Northern California for Las Vegas.

Check out the debut trailer for Paladins: Battlegrounds below. The game's developers have said that the mode was always meant to be a team effort, with players using the abilities of their heroes to claim victory, while also gathering loot from around various bases and finding airdrops that contain loot.

The update will include a new champion, Moji. She rides a summoned two-headed dragon into battle, feeding it snacks to reload its magical energy. Meet Moji, the newest member of the Flank class. According to the developer, 2018 will be just as fresh with content, evidenced by the Battlegrounds and Team Deathmatch modes and the new hero that were announced during today's conference.
