The Battle for Agora has begun and it’s your turn to Join the Fight. Paragon Founder’s Packs went on sale last March 14, and Early Access begins on March 18. By buying a Founder’s Pack, you’ll be able to play early, get a great value on in-game content, and help shape the future of the game. Your progress will be persistent – meaning they will not wipe accounts after March 18. If you don’t want to buy a Founder’s Pack, Epic Games will be holding Beta Weekends during Early Access where you can play Paragon for free.
Paragon is designed so that all players can compete and win without ever having to spend money. According to the developers, “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.”
Why Early Access and Founder’s Packs?
Paragon is still in development. The game is missing features, and some of the content is placeholder. Developers say, “We don’t yet have a lot of features to make it easier to understand for new players, and some systems (for example: cards and deck building) require a lot of patience. Yet, we really want gamers to be able to opt-in and be here with us from the start, to give feedback and help shape the game. As a way of saying thanks, we’re trying to make Founder’s Packs an insanely good value.”
If you’re interested in Paragon, buying a Founder’s Pack will get you in-game content at a huge discount from normal prices. During the Early Access Season, they will release new (free!) Heroes every three weeks, hold community events, and offer daily and weekly rewards.
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.
Paragon is the MOBA from Epic Games and will be available to PC and PS4 on March 18. Paragon puts you in the fight with explosive action, direct third-person control, and deep strategic choice.
