Epic Games Adds Cyber Melee Tank Riktor To Paragon

Epic Games has revealed Riktor, a cyborg melee tank, as the latest addition to the roster of its MOBA Paragon.

The Hero offers a range of electric attacks focusing on crowd control, including the dual chain Riplash ability which drags enemies closer for a devastating attack. Shock Therapy interrupts enemies by silencing them while the Skewer Ultimate move uses a web of chains to stun and damage everyone in Riktor’s path.

Paragon is currently in Early Access with a free weekend taking place this weekend until May 30th. Players will have the option to extend their time by purchasing one of the founders packs.

All Heroes in the game, including Riktor, are available for free and the character will be added to Early Access on May 31st.

Paragon is coming to PC and PlayStation 4 later this year. An open beta will take place this summer with a retail version launching next month for PS4.
