Instead, we're told that "Paladins: Battlegrounds is the first-ever hero-shooter battle royale".

Like PUBG, Paladins Battlegrounds will be set on a large map (300 times the square footage of a typical siege map), where they will drop in and hunt for loot.

Following the enormous success of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the concept of the battle royale has spawned a number of games based on a similar principle. As pointed out by EuroGamer, Paladins has card battling gameplay from 2015 games and hero shooter mechanics from 2016 titles. There will also be zeppelins that drop legendary gear throughout the map, all while players are pushed into smaller regions thanks to a rolling fog. 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.

While we don't have official gameplay available (yet), the new mode will be available in 2018 for free to anyone who plays Paladins which is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

If the games listed by Amazon are to be announced soon, there is no doubt they will be shown at the upcoming Nintendo Direct. We are proud to award Nintendo with the titles of Shacknews Best Developer and Publisher of the Year .

An Alpha version of Paladins: Battlegrounds is playable now at Hi-Rez Expo while the full release of this new mode is expected to land later this year, free-to-play just like the rest of the game.

Paladins is a free-to-play game for PS4, so it's well worth checking out! A major variation is that Paladins champions have class abilities and, in Paladins: Battlegrounds, players will have mounts.

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

With a debut trailer that may as well be called PaladinsUnknown Battlegrounds. Essentially, the game divides 100 players into teams and sends them out into a massive map.
