Paragon to hold free beta weekend for PC and PS4

If interested, clear your calendar on May 26-30.

3

Epic Games has been running paid Early Access for its upcoming MOBA Paragon since March, but it will soon be opening the game up for more players with a free beta weekend on May 26-30.

If you don't have an account, you'll need to create one before you can sign up for the beta. Here's a taste:

Of course, free weekends are meant to get you interested enough to pre-order the game, and Epic has several founders pack options, which will allow you to stay in Early Access once the free weekend ends.

Epic has been adding new heroes to Early Access over the last couple months. Last week, it added GRIM.exe, and back in April released Iggy and Scorch. If you aren't familiar with the game, Ozzie previewed it when Early Access launched in March.

There is no release date yet, other than sometime this year, and the game is only being developed for PC and PlayStation 4.

      Oh good, another game I want to just try out and probably not stick with because I have no time

        I'm not sure how Paragon will charge a space between League/DOTA/HotS/Smitw and Battleborn. It really felt like a 3rd person Moba without real depth because of bland itemization.

      This keeps making me think it's about that updated Elite/Oolite fork. (they changed their name to Jumpdrive- I hope Paragon paid them some meaningful $$ for the name, but probably not.) http://steamcommunity.com/app/291250
