What do you think of Paladins: Battlegrounds?

So that is what you get when you combine a "hero shooter" with battle royale, huh?

"Laurels PlayerUnknown" s Battlegrounds still do not give rest to other developers - the authors of the Paladins from Hi-Rez Studios also decided that their game is vital for their own "battle Royale".

An all-new game mode for Paladins - introducing Paladins: Battlegrounds! Despite the similarities to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, including the name which Hi-Rez President Stew Chisam defended in comments this week, there are a few differences.

- Paladins: Battlegrounds mashes up the ability driven combat with the survival gameplay of a Battle Royale game offering a highly unique experience.

On an interesting note, Chisam is aware that the appendage "battlegrounds" will create some noise in the industry and that it'll leave little room for doubt on what gameplay to expect from it. However, there are still fans who are excited to see how this new mode will play out.

To put things into perspective, Paladins: Battlegrounds will pit players against one another in a huge map that's larger than the usual ones in Paladins: Champions of the Realm, which a fog will reduce in size slowly as a match progresses.

The announcement of "Paladins: Battlegrounds" was made at the Hi-Rez Expo 2018.

"Fortnite" has also added a free battle royal mode, which was introduced in September past year.

Chisam said that they chose the name Paladins: Battlegrounds as an homage to MMO's.

This isn't the first time that High Rez has been accused of ripping off popular game genres, either. Similarly to the current situation, COO Todd Harris had to come out and defend Paladins, claiming that it wasn't a clone.

Paladins: Battlegrounds will be free-to-play for all players sometime in 2018, while its hero shooter counterpart Paladins: Champions of the Realm is now free-to-play in beta on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
