Battle royale game mode, 'Battlegrounds', announced by Paladins

Hi-Rez Studios Debuts Nearly One Hour of Paladins: Battlegrounds Footage at HRX 2018

Paladins developer Hi-Rez Studios showed off almost an hour of Paladins: Battlegrounds pre-alpha gameplay at the studio's Hi-Rez Expo 2018 event, after announcing the new battle royale mode earlier this week.

The news about the mode spread rather quickly, where Hi-Rez announced that this would be the first-ever Battle Royale hero-shooter.

It's also worth mentioning that if Hi-Rez Studios went with "Paladins: Battle Royale", then Fortnite: Battle Royale could be the center of attention instead of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

This is identical to many other Battle Royale-style action games out there, where players are thrust into a map and must kill off 99 other players in order to secure a win.

Also at Hi-Rez Studios has told about plans to introduce the game champion by the name of Moji, a new mode "Team Deathmatch", and more.

So that is what you get when you combine a "hero shooter" with battle royale, huh? This leads to the question why PUBG would call their game a "battleground" if it looks and feels more like a battle royale than an MMO.

From that, users understandably drew the comparison between Paladins: Battlegrounds and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds beyond the name. But he goes on to say that "we made a decision to keep champion abilities, keep team-play, keep items rather than weapons", and that those are "all Paladins features".

This isn't the first time that High Rez has been accused of ripping off popular game genres, either.

"Designed from the ground-up to be played in teams, players must work together to survive in Paladins: Battlegrounds", said Hi-Rez in a statement.

The company's cofounder and chief operating officer Todd Harris stepped in to clear things up at the time, similar to what Chisam did regarding the "battlegrounds" dispute. "I expect that we'll see a lot of Paladins fans who enjoy it, as a variation".

Paladins: Battlegrounds will be available later this year, but if you want to play the original game to get used to the heroes you will play as, Paladins: Champions of the Realm is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
