A select group of players have already been able to try out an early version of the game on PC, albeit only during specific hours. The next batch of tests are coming up this Saturday and Sunday, January 16 and 17, for a period of seven hours each day.
Those on PS4, the game's other platform, will also get to try out the game before long. In an email sent out today, Epic indicated it plans to launch PS4 online tests "very soon." It's asking those in the testing pool to link their PlayStation Network IDs to their Epic Games accounts, though it sounds as if not everyone who does so will be selected (at least at first).
Epic plans for the game to enter paid early access sometime this spring, followed by an open beta this summer. You can sign up for the beta in the meantime at the official website, a process which recently caught the company some flak when it blocked a man from registering based on his name.
Paragon is a third-person MOBA, not unlike Smite. But whereas Smite features stylized graphics and a more traditional item-building system, Paragon has a realistic style and uses a card system for upgrading your character throughout the course of a match.
