    A new Paragon website is online, revealing details on Paragon, a new game coming to PCs in 2016 from Epic Games. They are holding back on most details for now, but they are already accepting signups from prospective beta testers, and offer the chance to unlock in-game items. They are also revealing a new character from the game each week, and kick things off with a new Twinblast teaser video.

    Paragon - Sparrow Teaser Reveal.

    Here's another new teaser trailer from Paragon, introducing Sparrow, another character from Epic's upcoming PC game. As before, this is a very short cinematic, and doesn't provide much info about the game or the character, though it does show her wielding a bow and arrow.

    Paragon: Intro and Tutorial for Alpha Testers - Online Test 1.

    CG trailers are great and all, but nothing beats some proper gameplay footage. Epic Games’ MOBA/hero-shooter Paragon, was featured at Sony’s PSX keynote. The developer showed off a really good pre-rendered trailer, and followed it up with a very short gameplay video.

    Today, thanks to the alpha test, we get to see the tutorial those selected for the alpha will watch. This new video, while designed primarily for alpha testers, shows a decent chunk of gameplay and explains some of the game’s systems. Here it is.


    Paragon is due sometime in 2016 on PC and PlayStation 4.

    Paragon - System requirements revealed.

    Epic kicked off the Paragon early access period today, but to get in you'll need two things. One, a willingness to pony up for a Founder's Pack, which come in three flavors ranging from $20 to $100; and two, a PC capable of actually playing the thing. I can't help you with the first part, but I can give you an idea of where you'll need to be with regards to the second. As detailed in the Paragon FAQ:

    The Baseline:

    • Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 6870 equivalent DX11 GPU
    • 1 GByte VRAM
    • Core i5 2.5 Ghz
    • 4 GByte RAM
    • Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
    The Exemplar:

    • Nvidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent DX11 GPU
    • 2 GByte VRAM
    • Core i5 2.8 Ghz
    • 8 GByte RAM
    • Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
    If your rig isn't quite up to snuff, Epic recommends that you avoid the early access release for now and check back later as we complete more optimizations and improvements for lower machines. The FAQ also contains a list of tested graphics cards and their average fps rates at different settings, ranging from the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, which manages 87 fps at epic, all the way down to the GeForce GT 540M, and its effectively unplayable 12 fps even on the low setting.
