Stunning, eh? Paragon's graphics are powered by Epic's Unreal Engine 4, and the result is a game that looks fairly close to its cinematic trailer, as the short gameplay video below attests. Five-versus-five team play and three-laned arenas make Paragon a classic MOBA game at heart, but its over-the-shoulder perspective is an interesting twist compared to the high-angle styles of League of Legends and Dota 2. This game's more photorealistic graphics are refreshing compared to the"colorful monster" style used by other MOBAs, too. That art style feels a little played-out these days.
Further details about the gameplay are sparse, but Epic hints at a card-collecting and deck-building mechanic. That sounds similar to an unlock and outfitting system at first glance. The firm says a paid early-access phase will begin in spring 2016, and an open beta will follow that summer. Players eager to try out Paragon can sign up for the beta here.
