Hi-Rez has surprised its players after revealing a new battle royale mode for Paladins named “Battlegrounds”.

“Paladins: Battlegrounds”. will be free-to play, and drops 100 players into 20-minute matches. The matches each will be set on a large map and teams of players will fight over the loot of “more than four dozen outposts” and chase “zeppelins that drop legendary gear” as encroaching fog corrals them into ever-tighter skirmishes. The last team standing wins.
