  • Paladins is getting a battle royale mode called, er, Battlegrounds

Hero shooter Paladins, which has often been compared to Overwatch, is getting a battle royale-styled gameplay mode.

In addition to the core shooter experience, Paladins also offers deep strategy and in-match character progression through decks of collectible cards, which amplify and augment a character's core set of abilities. The MOBA roots can definitely make a difference in the Battle Royale genre; just think about the different roles like supporters and tanks.

Paladins, Hi-Rez's hero shooter, is taking drastic action to secure a slice of the enormous Battlegrounds pie.

Paladins isn't the first game to copy-pasta PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which a year ago, took over the world of PC gaming. Will Battle Royale work well with Paladins?
