The battle royale genre is big thanks to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which has become one of the most popular multiplayer games ever. Of course other studios have seen the success garnered by that game, and some want a piece of that pie. The latest studio to throw its hat into the battle royale ring is Hi-Rez Studios who today announced Paladins: Battlegrounds.
Calling it the first hero shooter battle royale Battlegrounds will be a new mode where the map is three times larger than the Siege maps found in Paladins. Much like PUBG 100 players will face off to kill each other using abilities and weapons. The mode will be launching later this year.
