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

Champion of the Realm has garnered quite a loyal following since arriving on the scene, and now the developer has announced that the game is receiving a Battle Royale mode, called simply Champions: Battlegrounds.

Paladins has been a well-received hero shooter on both PC and consoles.

A new Paladins Battle Royale mode has once again followed the leader in the battle royale game type that was popularized by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Will Battle Royale work well with Paladins? According to Hi-Rez, the map is massive and sprawling, 300 times the size of a standard Siege map. They'll have mounts just like in Paladins, and be able to explore and loot through various outposts as well as tracking zeppelins that drop legendary gear - much like the airdrops in PUBG.

The Nintendo Switch has already attracted some major third-party support, with publishers like Bethesda, Take-Two and more making games for the console/handheld hybrid.

An alpha of Paladins' Battlegrounds is playable at this week's Hi-Rez Expo, and the full release is expected later in 2018. 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. It will launch alongside the new Trade District map.

Besides the announcement of new game modes to Paladins, you can also expect a new hero to be added to the game. 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". Along with getting a pretty sweet looking mount, Twitch Prime members will also receive a new Bomb King skin as well. Paladins developer Hi-Rez Studios is the latest to join in the Switch party, but we don't know which of its games will be coming yet.
