You Can Play Epic Games' Paragon for Free on PS4 and PC Starting Today

Paragon's open beta is officially underway.


Paragon, the new MOBA from Unreal Tournament and Gears of War creator Epic Games, is now available for everyone to play on PS4 and PC.

As previously announced, Paragon's open beta begins today on both platforms. Until now, you had to either receive a code or purchase the early access version to play. (It was also a PlayStation Plus freebie in July.)

That's no longer the case, as you can now download the game on either platform and begin playing for free. There's no paying for access to certain characters, either; whereas some MOBAs (like League of Legends and Smite) only offer a limited selection of characters at any time, Paragon goes the Dota 2 route in providing its full roster for free. A new character is added every three weeks and Epic has pledged not to sell anything that affects gameplay.

Paragon, like Smite, is played from the perspective of a third-person action game. One of the features Epic touts is that the game is played on an open map with different elevation levels. It also features a card/deck system for customizing your strategy and loadout.
