  • OVERWATCH meets PUBG? This new game might be EVERYTHING YOU NEED

This makes Paladins the second multiplayer game that has been copying PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds by adding in a battle royale mode where players must hunt down 100 other players to be the last one standing, gathering loot and trying to avoid getting outside of a steadily shrinking circle. Whereas other battle royale games focus on a single-player experience, Paladins: Battlegrounds is instead developed with team-based gameplay in mind.

Paladins' take will keep the main game's varied cast of characters however, essentially merging the hero-based shooter and Battle Royale genres into one.

"Designed from the ground-up to be played in teams, players must work together to survive in Paladins: Battlegrounds". The already-released options are the Greek mythology-inspired SMITE, the hero shooter Paladins or turn-based strategy game Hand of the Gods: SMITE Tactics.

Manufacturing sector records record growth in December
The country's manufacturing PMI has been in positive territory for 17 months in a row despite overall slower expansion this month. This was consistent with the strongest improvement in the health of the sector since December 2012.

"Riding on a mount through this massive fantasy-themed map, looking for gear and cooperating with your team, Paladins: Battlegrounds delivers some of the feel of open-world MMO PvP but all within a 20-minute match", said Todd Harris, Executive Producer of Paladins. The new mode also comes with a new map, Trade District, which you can get a closer look at in the following trailer. It will be released sometime in 2018 for PC and consoles. We expect it to do about as well as Fortnite Battle Royale, in that it gets a core of loyal players. Players will be able to throw the usual objective-focused gameplay of modes like Siege, Payload and Onslaught out of the way in a mode where taking out the enemy team is the only thing that matters.

The update will include a new champion, Moji. Meet Moji, the newest member of the Flank class. She rides a summoned two-headed dragon into battle, feeding it snacks to reload its magical energy.
