The wave that is Battle Royale Games looks to be here to stay for the time being. Hi-Rez has surprisingly been doing well with their game Paladins which is a direct competitor to Overwatch. Yesterday they announced a new game mode simply called Battlegrounds which pits up to 100 heroes on a map three times the size of a Siege map.
Hi-Rez puts their spin on the Battlegrounds format by having you go across the map and loot outposts for gear. It also looks like there will be no solo play, as everyone will be put in squads and have to work together to be the last team alive.
I’ve never played Paladins before, but I’m open to seeing how their battle royale game plays compared to Fortnite and PubG.
