Paragon – Unreal Engine 4 MOBA title by Epic Games arriving next summer

[Beta register] I am having a great time juggling between Overwatch and Paladins, so I am unsure what to think of Epic Games’ new third-person MOBA title, Paragon. The developer recently revealed Paragon will enter paid Early Access in Spring 2016, followed by Open Beta in Summer 2016. Generic terms such as “explosive action and “deep strategic choice” were used to describe the game.

 

Being crafted by Unreal Engine 4, Paragon will no doubt be the prettiest competitive MOBA game ever, perhaps the first to push current-gen systems to their limits. Feature-wise, the only realy different I could see thus far is the card deck system, which provides the same heroes with different abilities. But that seems oddly familiar to the one found in Paladins. There is really nothing else to talk about.

 

With a developer as big as Epic Games, I would really have like to see something more “bombastic” in Paragon’s announcement. Has the MOBA genre become so stale, that graphics is the next field of challenge? Paragon probably has the first official 4K definition game trailers for the year, showing how much effort is put in promoting the visual prowess. Hopefully the game lives up to its hype.
