Today, Epic Games has released a major update to its free-to-play third-person MOBA, Paragon, now available in free Open Beta for PC and PlayStation 4. “The Dawn Update” comes with a complete rework of the game’s card/itemisation system, significantly speeds up gameplay, offers new player progression and rewards, and more.
Epic has released a new video that details some of the updates, and you can find some more information below, or full details at “The New Dawn” update page.
A New Way to Build
“The New Dawn” brings an entirely new way for players to build Heroes. Players can explore 100 new cards with unique abilities, along with a brand new Gem system to augment Hero stats and unlock unique abilities. This new system puts an unlimited variety of power in players’ hands and comes with a completely new look and way to play.
Attack speed has been increased and cooldowns have been reduced for all Heroes. This change embraces the level of immersion Epic set out to create with the launch of Paragon. Basic attacks and abilities feel snappier and more responsive than ever.
Balance Rebuilt; Iggy & Scorch Get an Upgrade
The entire gameplay balance has been rebuilt from the ground up. Every Hero, tower, and minion have new baseline stat attributes. Additionally, our friends Iggy & Scorch have gotten a complete rework. The pair’s abilities have changed from top to bottom, sporting new Turrets, a new attack, and a completely new Ultimate ability. You can see the new Iggy & Scorch in action here.
