Epic Games has a new multiplayer shooter coming this year. An announcement trailer dropped back in early December, which I'll link below, and you can finally sign up to get a chance to check the game out for yourself. But what is Paragon? Let's find out.
Paragon is a MOBA. Yeah that genre certainly got over-saturated in the last year or so. But like Smite, Paragon puts the player perspective in a third person view that promises to focus greatly on verticallity in its level design. Something Smite doesn't do at all.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4 this character focused shooter does look at least like it is adding its own twist to the MOBA genre while obviously taking some inspiration from how Smite handled its perspective of the typical three lane genre.
So if it strikes your eye, take a look at some of the gameplay preview (on the right) and sign up for Beta. Online testing starts this month, followed by paid early access later this year, and open beta in the fall. But fear not, Epic Game's states in the signed up confirmation email that everyone who signs up will have the opportunity to play before open beta.
