Hi-Rez had much to share about Paladins' battle royale mode, which the developer is calling the "first-ever hero-shooter battle royale", while still leaving much to the imagination.

Paladins: Battlegrounds is "still early in development" according to Hi-Rez, and will be completely free for all users. The MOBA roots can definitely make a difference in the Battle Royale genre; just think about the different roles like supporters and tanks. This will be the first of a string of updates headlined by another new game mode: Team Deathmatch. Will Battle Royale work well with Paladins?

Like PUBG, Paladins Battlegrounds will be set on a large map (300 times the square footage of a typical siege map), where they will drop in and hunt for loot. Making fights between the 100 players more frequent. Battlegrounds features "more than four dozen outposts" and staple features of battle royale modes like a shrinking play area, looting for gear and scouting for zeppelins high in the sky, which will drop "legendary gear" onto the playing field.

This new game mode is expected to arrive sometime during 2018 and as previously stated, will be added to the game at no charge. 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. Mounts will also be usable. You can check out the trailer video of it below, which also includes it's own unique map "Trade District". Meet Moji, the newest member of the Flank class. Last fall, third-person shooter/fort-building game Fortnite iterated on Battlegrounds' premise with a battle royale mode. With the console players getting it a week later on January 17.
