Today developer and publisher Epic Games announced that its game Paragon will be getting a brand new character very soon.

Called Wraith, this character has some very unique abilities. First off is Knock, Knock! which is a long range rifle that allows you to pierce walls and other surfaces. Taking out targets with this ability will also refund your mana over time. Next up is Who’s there? With this, you’ll be able to send up a sonar ward, which will highlight surrounding enemies. After that, we have Back it up! Using this will allow you to mark an enemy, and send them back to previous location. Finally we have Suprise, Suprise!, which will send you and any nearby allies to the Shadow Plane, allowing them to be invisible. They will also be granted a temporary movement boost.

The developer also provided an official description of the character, which you can check out below:

Wraith (Intellect, Order) is a graduate of the special operations program Echelon, and was apprenticed to the only other graduate, Kallari. She specializes in assassination while he specializes in surveillance.  A recon specialist, Wraith uses high tech tools to gather intel on his targets and outmaneuver his enemies.

Gamers will get their chance to play as Wraith in just a few days, on  June 27th, 2017. Like all other Paragon characters, Wraith will be available completely free of charge. Previously added characters include Wukong at the beginning of the month, and Phase in May.

Epic Games also released a trailer in order to give players their first look at the new hero. You can check it out at the end of the article.
