Paragon is a New Shooter Coming From the Unreal Engine Creator, Epic Games


Epic Games has a new game on the horizon called Paragon. A new trailer popped up today that shows off one of the in-game playable heroes, Twinblast, a cybernetic human with two very red artificial arms gripping a pistol.

Perhaps this is another new multiplayer, team-based shooter from Epic Games.

This trailer is only but a small tease of the actual game. Nothing substantial has been released so far, though focusing on "hero" characters that have nicknames that evoke a certain flair does point towards a multiplayer competition of some kind. You can sign-up for the beta test here if you'd like to be one of the first to try this curious game. According to the official website, we'll see more character reveals throughout the rest of the week; Steel, Sparrow, Dekker and Grux, all of whom already hint at an appearance to match their names.

This is indeed a curious development if it turns out to be a multiplayer based arrangement. They're already rebooting, to quite the fanfare, their ubiquitous Unreal Tournament franchise to fulfill fast-paced, over-the-top arena action. But perhaps this new entrant, Paragon, will be much more than even what Unreal Tournament is and cross-over into a MOBA type realm.

Whatever the final reveal for Paragon is, stay tuned for more info. And don't forget to sign-up for that beta test either.
