NEWS: Paragon “Founders Packs” arriving this month

paragon

Paragon, the newest MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) title from Epic will be launching “Founder packs” for $19.99 starting on March 14…but fear not, microtransactions are only designed to speed up unlocks, as ALL heroes and items which affect gameplay will NEVER be sold, and will always be free.Reddit

But don’t take my word for it! In a community post, Steve Superville, Paragon’s creative director said this:

We have some BIG news! Paragon Founder’s Packs go on sale March 14, and unlock Early Access beginning on March 18. So what does this mean exactly?

By buying a Founder’s Pack, you’ll be able to play early, get a great value on in-game content, and help shape the future of the game. Your progress will be persistent – meaning we will not wipe accounts after March 18.

For those of you who have signed up for the beta (almost a million people so far!) – thank you for your support! If you don’t want to buy a Founder’s Pack, we will be holding Beta Weekends during Early Access where you can play Paragon for free.

All Heroes Free, All Cards Earned By Playing

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. We’re taking this approach because we believe that competitive games need to be fair for all players.

Why 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.

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.

Founder’s Packs will cost $19.99, and include access to the game, skins, boosts, and other cosmetic items you can unlock by playing. Challenger Packs ($59.99) and Master Packs ($99.99) will include a huge number of skins, unlockable items, boosts, a unique skin, and a Founder’s Pack to give to a friend. We’ll be sharing complete details soon.

If you’d like to support Paragon, buy a Founder’s Pack on March 14 and jump in early. Or, you can sign up for the Beta at Paragon.com and join us for free in the Summer of 2016.
