Epic Games Brings Paragon to PS4 in 2016

Steve Superville's Avatar Posted by Creative Director

Epic Games is making a MOBA. It’s called Paragon, and it’s coming to PS4 in 2016.

Paragon has been a passion project in development at Epic for the last two years, and it’s great to finally be able to share it with you. When it comes to competitive multiplayer games there’s nothing quite like MOBAs. They combine player skill with strategic creativity and telepathic team play. The resulting team fights, unspoken coordination, and clever ganks are a huge rush, and keep players coming back.

With years of experience creating beautiful and immersive action games, we knew we had something fresh to bring to the MOBA genre. In Paragon, we put you in the middle of the action with direct control over your hero. At the same time, we made the decision to preserve what makes MOBAs great. Paragon is not a hybrid. It is clearly and faithfully a MOBA, brought to life with explosive action.

Console development is in Epic’s DNA, so we set out to create a great experience for PlayStation gamers. This is not a port. The gameplay feels great on DualShock 4. Cross-play between PS4 and PC is seamless and the game saves your progress and items across both platforms.

We’ve just begun to talk about Paragon and have much more to share in the coming weeks and months. We’ll reveal more Heroes and give you a deeper look at our card and replay systems.

We’re excited to invite people to start playing the game over the next few months. Online testing will begin in January, followed by paid Early Access in Spring, and Open Beta in Summer 2016.

Only Epic game I have ever wanted to play was Gears, but they sold their soul to MS. So, meh.

    There wouldn’t have been another Gears game if not for MS buying it out.

I just watched the short gameplay clip and it is much more interesting than that cinematic trailer.

Looks promising. Of course, the graphics helps but I guess that’s PC Gameplay, even on Pre Alpha.

Are you seriously going to charge people to Beta test your game for you? Really? … LOL…. WOW

    “Online testing will begin in January…Open Beta in summer….”

    Early Access is not a Beta..Beta is for balancing/bug feedback…paid early access is charging for the “privilage” to play the current version of the game.

You guys really should get the gameplay trailer shown more on the popular gaming websites. This could get a lot of attention if you show the actual gameplay. PSX was a blown opportunity.

I´ve just wached a gameplay video and it looks nice! But I think its a mix of LOL and Destiny, I don´t know why :P

I’ll be watching this one. I am not sure why PSX closed out with a Hero Shooter (I think calling them MOBA’s makes people think too much of LoL and turns some people off) since they seem to be all over the place right now. Almost seems like this was in complete retaliation of XB bringing out Insomniac to showcase SSOD. Hopefully PlayStation doesn’t set Paragon up for failure the way SSOD was.

That out of the way, the game-play actually looks real good. The problem is that Hero Shooter already seems to be a saturated market and none of the real games are even out yet. And once you put $60 on a MOBA like game, you lose lots of people that feel they should be F2P. Smite is actually doing pretty well right now because it is F2P and it has no competition.

    The game is F2P, look it up. Plus LOL is amazign moba game, so tons of people will be on this hard.
