Epic Games is the studio behind the hottest property in the gaming industry right now, Fortnite, but one of their other titles isn’t doing as well.
Paragon, a third-person MOBA title, will officially shut down on April 26th. The announcement came after the studio realised they don’t have a clear roadmap for the game and can’t sustain a large enough playerbase to maintain a healthy and entertaining experience. Therefore, Epic Games decided to make Paragon’s assets public for anyone to use and mess around with, valued at around a total of $12 million.
We are extremely excited to announce that we’ve released $12 million worth of assets from our action MOBA Paragon on the Unreal Engine Marketplace. They’re all free to use in your Unreal Engine 4 projects with no strings attached! Below you can find more information on these assets. We look forward to seeing what developers around the world do with them! Share your work on social media with us by tagging us on Facebook and using the #UE4 hashtag on Twitter and Instagram.
Where can I download the Paragon assets?
All of the Paragon assets are available now for free download on the Marketplace. You can find an easy link for the content at http://unrealengine.com/paragon.
How much do I have pay for the Paragon assets?
Nothing! They’re completely free. You can use them in both commercial and non-commercial Unreal Engine 4 projects.
What’s included in each pack?
Each character pack includes the base meshes, textures, skins, animations, abilities and character FX, and dialogue. Additionally, Shinbi’s animation Blueprints have been reconstructed to provide an example of how to set them up for the other character packs.
Will this give more time for Epic Games’ development to completely focus on Fortnite and continue its incredible growth?
