Paladins: Battlegrounds is being touted as the first hero shooter to be a part of the growing battle royale genre. The only real difference Paladins: Battlegrounds promises is the inclusion of class abilities.
Paladins already combines some of the best of 2015's card battling gameplay and 2016's hero shooter mechanics, so the addition of 2017's battle royale gameplay makes some kind of sense.
Paladins, which has drawn comparisons to another hero-based shooter, Overwatch, will follow the battle royale gameplay popularized by Playerunknown's Battlegrounds pretty closely. Will Battle Royale work well with Paladins? Players will spawn on a massive map that's said to be over 300 times the square footage of a typical Paladins map seen in Siege mode. Making fights between the 100 players more frequent. It will be released sometime in 2018 for PC and consoles.
Fortnite's battle royale mode has since become much more popular than the original game, to the point that the developers made it so that players could download it for free to play without having to buy the original Fortnite game. Along with getting a pretty sweet looking mount, Twitch Prime members will also receive a new Bomb King skin as well.
