Epic Games Teases New Title: 'Paragon'

Epic Games is known for its Unreal Engine software and its longtime series, Unreal Tournament and Gears of War. However, the company also has a few other new titles in development, and its latest reveal shows a new, PC-only game called Paragon coming in 2016.

For now, the developers are showing very little, with only a brief trailer showing off one of the game's heroes, a dual-gun-wielding character called Twinblast. Further information on the game's website shows four perks available for the character.

Four more characters -- Steel, Sparrow, Dekker, and Grux -- will be revealed one at a time for the next four weeks. Interested players can sign up for the beta on the game's home page.

    Is this newsworthy?

    Nothing worse then a game trailer that show no actual game footage. Would you want to watch a movie trailer that did not show any scenes from the movie? Or listen to a sample of a new song that did not play any of the new music?

    Wow people! Yes its newsworthy, because its news to me. I just signed up for beta. I actually went to the website. The character seems to have the typical abilities you'd expect from a MOBA type. I'm guessing its 1st person.

    I played a different technical test over the weekend of another fps moba or whatever category they are (not Overwatch). We can probably expect to see more on the way.

    I'm guessing Epic has given up on ever making Unreal 3 (not to be confused with a Tournament game). I thought it might be a consideration since they passed the torch on Gears. ... Maybe Gears, in their opinion was Unreal 3 but with a totally new story comes a totally new name for the IP. Skaarj got traded for the Locust Horde. ... nah. I want a real Unreal 3 and steer clear from anything Halo-ish. Newsworthy is subjective. Unreal 3 would be newsworthy to me.
