Developer Hi-Rez Studios is looking to answer that question, with the reveal of Paladins: Battlegrounds.

Battlegrounds was designed as a team-based, class-based mode with ability-based combat, similar to Paladins itself.

Overwatch is out and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is in for Paladins. All while exploring the map for loot through the four dozen outposts and tracking zeppelins that drop legendary gear. According to Hi-Rez, the map is massive and sprawling, 300 times the size of a standard Siege map.

Similarly to PUBG, 100 players will be able to take place in the game at any one time, though the initial offering will be team-based.




This new game mode is expected to arrive sometime during 2018 and as previously stated, will be added to the game at no charge. We have to say, a Paladins style battle royale game sounds both intriguing and exciting and we'll definitely be trying it out.

Correction: An earlier version of this article said that Paladins' new hero and Team Deathmatch mode were playable in open beta. Team Deathmatch will go live with a new map, Trade District. Moji is Paladins' 35th hero, not to mention a member of the new Leipori race. Meet Moji, the name of the new champion rides into battle onto a two-=headed dragon which you feed snacks to reload it's magical energy. When asked if Hi-Rez Studios had any plans to port their games to the Switch or create brand new content for the Switch, Goren quickly responded with an excited "yes".

Finally, a new mount type, Battle Cats, is coming this year. Last fall, third-person shooter/fort-building game Fortnite iterated on Battlegrounds' premise with a battle royale mode.
