We’ve taken the new GTX 1060 Gaming Laptop to Agora for a quick match and as you can see from the gameplay FPS test below, things are looking pretty darn EPIC!

UPDATE: Paragon open BETA !

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!

 

Good Graphics – Paragon Tests Begin!

Powerful heroes join the fray!  Changing the battle with new abilities and ultimates.  Paragon blasted its way into a new stage of testing with players allowed to share and stream gameplay from the latest MOBA game – it even has a built-in Replay System, making it easy to export to YouTube + a GIF creator so you can share your most glorious moments instantly, and even build guides for the community.

“But what about that message saying I can’t share gameplay!”

Don’t worry about that – it’s a glitch left over from the first round of testing as below in this Tweet from EpicGames addressing the confusing situation!

Allowed to stream

Phew!  We’ve begun testing this out with our Gaming PC and Gaming Laptops and as you’ll see below from our quick test with the Hero Gaming PC things are certainly looking good!
