Smite & Paladins devs Hi-Rez splitting into multiple studios

The developers behind Paladins, Smite, Realm Royale, and Tribes: Ascend today announced they're formally splitting into distinct new studios to handle their big games (no, not including Tribes) under an overarching publisher. At the very least, this should assuage some fears about Hi-Rez's track record of ditching older games when their limited teams shifted over to newer games. For now, it seems their three core…

Realm Royale general guide: tips and tricks to win

With their new game Realm Royale, Hi-Rez are taking on the likes of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite, but instead of taking what's already successful and simply slapping their name on it, they've brought more of a unique spin on the genre. It's set in the same fantasy world as Paladins, for example, and it adds forges to craft gear and the ability to scrap weapons into resources.…

Realm Royale classes: how to use them and what spells to grab

Perhaps the strangest thing for new players of Realm Royale is knowing the differences between the various classes on offer. Each one has a uniquely different play style with a host of abilities to master, as well as their own unique class legendary weapon to craft at the forge. This guide will take you through each one, detail what spells and weapons to grab, and…

Realm Royale map: where to drop, best places to loot

Like most battle royale games these days, the best loot in Realm Royale tends to be in locations that have larger clusters of buildings. With five different climates crammed into one tiny island, it's a bit difficult to know exactly where the best places are to drop for loot. But knowing where to go is only half of what you need to know and so…

Realm Royale weapons and armour: how to find them and which are the best

The most important loot in all battle royale games like Realm Royale are the weapons and armour. Without them, you can't exactly do much to your enemy beyond flailing a small knife around. Obviously this is going to be about as much use as it sounds, what with the amount of weapons that you can find just lying there in chests, waiting to be snagged…

Playstyle Royale: Once, twice, three times a chicken

This is Playstyle Royale, where I head into Playerunknown's Battlergounds a battle royale game and try to win my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules. This time's a bit different, because I'm more interested in becoming a chicken than winning one. I'm playing Realm Royale, the battle royale spin off to Hi-Rez's Paladins. One of its best ideas is that when you run out…

Realm Royale injects battle royale with tasty new ideas

I’m surprised by how much I like Realm Royale, the free-to-play battle royale spin-off to Hi-Rez's Paladins. This is battle royale by way of wizards, and an even goofier spin on the genre than Fortnite’s. Neither has the same tension as Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, but - oddly - this isn’t really a game about tension. This is a game about soaring into the air, whacking down…

Realm Royale takes Paladins to battle royale

Take the class-based wizard shooter action of Paladins, riff on the battle royale modes whizzing all over games these days, and bish bash bosh you've got Realm Royale. Hi-Rez's Paladins spin-off, which previously bore the remarkably cheeky name Paladins Battlegrounds, has now properly launched onto Steam Early Access, letting all play for free. Are you a bad enough wizard to murder like 99 other wizards?…
