So I’m not exactly sure how I missed this, but earlier this week Epic Games, the studio we know for Gears of War and the Unreal Engine have released both their announcement and gameplay trailers for their new MOBA Paragon.
The first trailer we are going to show you is the announcement trailer. This trailer shows in-engine footage, not in-game, but still gives you a good idea of what the game is all about. We can tell it is definitely a MOBA style game.
Now of course you want to see gameplay so be sure to check out the video below. This is what really got me excited, to be honest I am not a huge fan of MOBA games, I am more of a third-person and FPS gamer. Typically MOBA games have a fixed perspective overhead camera view. Paragon changes that by using an over the shoulder third-person perspective, which I think will bring many more people into the MOBA genre.
The game will still rely heavily on strategy and team play as well as making use of Hero skills. Paid early access to the game will begin in Spring of 2016 with an open beta starting sometime in the summer. Paragon will be available for both PC and PS4 from what we know.
