Steve Superville Creative Director at Epic Games has taken to the PlayStation blog to announce the Paragon: All Heroes Free, Early Access will start later this month on March 18th.
The Paragon Founder’s Packs is expected to be available to purchase little earlier from March 14th and unlock the Early Access that will be starting four days later. However is you would prefer to wait Paragon will also be available via a free Open Beta sometime during the summer.
Superville explains more about the Early Access and Founder’s Packs
Paragon is still in development. The game is missing features, and some of the content is placeholder. We don’t yet have a lot of features to make it easier to understand for new players, and some systems (for example: cards and deck building) require a lot of patience.
Paragon is designed so that all players can compete and win without ever having to spend money. All Heroes are free, and cards can only be earned by playing the game. The game will never be pay-to-win, meaning we will never sell gameplay-affecting items. We will sell cosmetic items (skins, emotes), boosts, and other convenience items, along with Paid Early Access, in order to make money. We’re taking this approach because we believe that competitive games need to be fair for all players.
Yet, we really want gamers to be able to opt-in and be here with us from the start, to give feedback and help shape the game. As a way of saying thanks, we’re trying to make Founder’s Packs an insanely good value. If you’re interested in Paragon, buying a Founder’s Pack will get you in-game content at a huge discount from normal prices. During the Early Access Season, we’ll release new (Free!) Heroes every three weeks, hold community events, and offer daily and weekly rewards.
