As I was browsing twitter, I saw a little post by Epic Games announcing a new game called Paragon. It’s Epic Games, this has to be good.
Uh, okay sure?

“Prepare for Victory” is instantly seared into your retinas after you click the link – I can still see it now if I close my eyes – and the message “Discover a new hero each week and earn unique in-game items” sits below it.
Clicking “Begin” takes you to a screen with five names: Twinblast, Steel, Sparrow, Dekker and Grux. You are able to see what Twinblast looks like right now, however you’ll have to wait a week before you can see the next hero.
Naturally I had a look at Twinblast, which consisted of close ups, zoom ins and snippets of his character model. He reminds me a little of Adam Jensen from the latest instalments in the Deus Ex franchise, without the Matrix vibe; maybe it’s because he’s got two mechanical arms brandishing menacing looking handguns.
Besides their obvious attempt to show off some glossy new graphics and a strapping man looking for a gunfight, there isn’t much to go on at the moment so it’s difficult to get excited over Paragon. I expected a little more from Epic, since they’re responsible for some incredible games including Unreal and Gears of War, but perhaps we’ve got to wait it out and see with this one.
