Epic Games’ Paragon Enters Open Beta August 16, New Hero Announced
Epic Games has confirmed on Sony’s PlayStation blog that their PlayStation 4 and PC Moba Paragon will have its first open beta period on August 16. The studio’s creative director Steve Superville says that during that time, play will be completely free and all characters currently available to owners of the the Founder’s Pack – which offers early access – will be playable.
Starting Tuesday, August 16 we will be entering Free Open Beta. That means playing Paragon will be totally free, until then our Founder’s Packs and the Essentials Edition still give you an awesome deal on stuff in the game and Early Access. For all the people currently playing in Early Access, we’re working on a whole host of improvements in the coming weeks, and we will never reset your account progress. We can’t thank you enough for helping us get to this point.
But that’s not all. Epic has also given fans a sneak peek of the latest addition to Paragon’s roster. Khaimera is described as being “Paragon’s first duelist” and “a hero that excels at isolating targets.”
Check out the Trailer:
“The TL;DR on Khaimera is that he is a melee fighter who specializes in disrupting team fights with closeup encounters. His Pounce leaps to a target enemy Hero, briefly stunning that Hero and dealing Physical Damage around him. While he’s engaged in fights, his Spirit Regeneration stacks more health regen with each basic attack. His Ultimate, Cull, deals a large amount of damage, both rooting and isolating a target from allies.”
