Epic Games’ new MOBA, Paragon, has decided to make a jump into Early Access direction. To most veteran gamers this may come as both good and bad news.
The phrase ‘Early Access’ tends to come with quite a load of notoriety, as gamers might know it as where a lot of indie games are left for dead. Paragon, however, has been very active so far, with regular updates and announcements, as well as good communication from devs to potential players.
Epic has also announced that during this Early Access and beyond, new heroes and cards will never cost extra. Cards will be earned by simply playing the game. However cosmetic items, such as skins and emotes, will be available for purchase in the game’s store.
The Paragon Early Access is available in the Founder’s Pack for $19.99. Apart from the game, this pack will also include skins, boosts and other cosmetic items. There are also going to be a Challengers Pack and a Master Pack, priced at $59.99 and $99.99 respectively. These include a huge number of skins, unlockable items, boosts, a unique skin, and the Founder’s Pack to give to a friend.
The official launch date for Paragon Early Access is March 18. Getting the Founder’s Pack will give you even earlier access to the game on March 14. You can also sign up for beta at the Paragon’s website for a chance to gain entry to some of the free beta weekends.
