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

It's only been a few days since the reveal of Paladins: Battlegrounds - the battle royale mode of Hi-Rez's class-based shooter - and the studio has revealed pre-Alpha gameplay footage of the game in motion. The objective is to keep participants in Paladins: Battlegrounds actively engaged in combat and willing to duke it out until there's a single victor left. Hi-Rez added that it what sets them apart from other "battle royale style" gameplays in other video games. Many feel that, since the game will play so similarly to PUBG, High Rez should at least stay away from the "battlegrounds" moniker. According to the authors, this is the first Battle Royale, where you fight characters with different abilities, and different characters. Though some may notice a lot of similarities between Paladins: Battlegrounds and other games on the market, the game mode makes a name for themselves with a host of different mechanics and an entirely different team-oriented strategy.

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.

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

The recent success of PlayerUnknown' Battlegrounds has inspired developers to pick up the popular new genre and attempt to implement it into different games.

"Fortnite" has also added a free battle royal mode, which was introduced in September previous year. The takeaway here is that PUBG Corporation isn't trying to claim ownership of battle royal gameplay or anything else along those lines.

From that, users understandably drew the comparison between Paladins: Battlegrounds and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds beyond the name.

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.
