Epic Games’ MOBA Paragon launches officially later this year for PS4 and PC, but if you want in on the action early, you have a chance to play starting on March 18th via the Founder’s packs that will go on sale on March 14th.
Creative Director Steve Superville posted more details in a press release:
“Paragon is designed so that 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. The game will never be pay-to-win, meaning we will never sell gameplay-affecting items. We will sell cosmetic items (skins, emotes), boosts and other convenience items, along with Paid Early Access. We’re taking this approach because we believe that competitive games need to be fair for all players.”
We also get an overview of costs and options:
“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. We’ll be sharing complete details soon.”
During early access free heroes will be released every two weeks, and Epic Games promises daily and weekly events for your entertainment.
