Paragon is a third-person 5v5 MOBA for PC and PlayStation 4 by Epic Games, makers of Gears of War. This is the third free-to-play game announced by the studio, following Fortnite and Unreal Tournament. Paragon looks extremely slick and the game world of Agora is stunning and ready to welcome several heroes in its arenas. Powered by the Unreal Engine 4, Paragon looks amazing and the sci-fi style is impressive to say the least.
While a MOBA at heart, Paragon is also a shooter with hints of Gears of War and it features cards to customize the heroes’ unique abilities, same as Hi-Rez Studios Paladins: Champions of the Realm. This adds another layer of strategy to the gameplay, one that is already rich thanks to the diverse heroes and the terrain featuring several elevations and spots that players can take advantage of.
Paragon is a must play and here’s hoping that Epic Games regularly releases new and original heroes and keeps the microtransactions fair and balanced.
