Update: A new open beta for Paragon has begun, the first phase has begun and will run until May 1. The second phase begins on May 5 and will be playable until May 8. The servers will be online from 9 AM PT/5 PM UK time for both events. Please note, Epic Games have said “The first stress test will include invites for the first 500,000 people who signed up for the beta only, the second stress test will include invites for anyone who signs up before May 1.”
You can sign up for the beta, or buy a Founder’s Pack for early access at www.paragon.com. Founder’s Packs include Master Challenges, which let you level your heroes to achieve mastery and claim unique rewards, completing a Master Challenge unlocks a taunt and the exclusive Master Skin that showcases your dedication and skill.
Paragon is designed so that every player can compete and win without ever having to spend money. New heroes every three weeks, community events, and daily and weekly rewards give you the opportunity to hone your skills and try out new play styles. This is a game where skill matters – where you aim, when you attack, and how you move – putting you in direct control of the action in a fully 3D world.
Cards give your heroes unique powers and capabilities on the battlefield. You build up your collection by playing, and can create decks that will hopefully lead your team to victory – because cards affect power in game, they can only be earned by playing the game.
We’ve been happily testing Paragon out with a mix of gaming hardware and as you can see in our GTX960m Gaming Laptop test below, the game is looking great!
