Keeping with their word, Epic Games has announced that Paragon is entering Early Access on March 18, 2016. Those who have already played in any online test will be able to continuing playing in Early Access, but there’s one more test before that – Online Test 10 starts on Monday, March 7 and runs 24-7 until Saturday, March 12.
If you didn’t get a key, you can always buy a Founder’s Pack when they go on sale starting March 14. Founder’s Packs will cost $19.99, and include access to the game, skins, boosts, and other cosmetic items you can unlock by playing. Challenger Packs ($59.99) and Master Packs ($99.99) will include a huge number of skins, unlockable items, boosts, a unique skin, and a Founder’s Pack to give to a friend.
Epic Games says that Paragon will be a free-to-play game where “all players can compete and win without ever having to spend money. All Heroes are free, and cards can only be earned by playing the game.” There will be a cash shop but it won’t sell gameplay-affecting items – the shop will sell “cosmetic items (skins, emotes), boosts, other convenience items, as well as early access.”
You can play either on PC or PS4 and you can link your account here by Saturday at Midnight EST.
