But this isn't the first time that Hi-Rez Studios have been accused of "ripping off" other studios.

It's no secret that the battle royale genre dominated the industry in 2017 thanks to smash hits like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite.

Hi-Rez Studios has announced that Paladins will be getting a new Battle Royale mode which will be a mashup of a hero-shooter combined with the style of a battle royale type game. Despite the size, Todd Harris, Executive Producer of Paladins, thinks players will find the mode has "the feel of open-world MMO PvP but all within a 20-minute match".

Paladins isn't the first game to copy-pasta PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which past year, took over the world of PC gaming. The first Battle Cat, Primal Prowler, will be available for free, exclusively to Twitch Prime members, who'll also get access to a new regal skin in the form of Twitch Prime King Bomb King.

Since 1998, the US has won three silver medals (2002, 2010, 2014) and one bronze medal (2006). The Winter Olympics are due to be held from February 9-25 in Pyeongchang.

While Paladins: Battlegrounds is a big addition to the game, Hi-Rez Studios isn't stopping at just one new game mode. The last team standing wins the game in the 100-player mode. It will be released sometime in 2018 for PC and consoles.

The new update will also bring a new game mode, Team Deathmatch. The game's developers have said that the mode was always meant to be a team effort, with players using the abilities of their heroes to claim victory, while also gathering loot from around various bases and finding airdrops that contain loot. You can check out the trailer video of it below, which also includes it's own unique map "Trade District".

The update will include a new champion, Moji. Meet Moji, the name of the new champion rides into battle onto a two-=headed dragon which you feed snacks to reload it's magical energy. That mode, which is free, has become wildly popular in the months since its release.
