Epic Games Teases Possible Paragon Sorceress


Epic Games has teased a new Paragon character on social media today. As they’ve made clear, they aim to release a new hero for the MOBA every three weeks.

Sorceress or assassin?

This hero is definitely a she, and we’re hoping she’s a melee fighter. Paragon is in dire need of female fighters. However, with the pendant in that pic, she’s probably a sorceress, though we can’t count out assassin. If that red fabric continues up out of frame, it could be a hood. Admittedly, the sorcerer Gideon sports a hood, and, likewise, bare shoulders, so odds are in favor of this new character being his counterpart, much in the way Belica was added as a counterpart to Murdoch.

Gideon gets a counterpart? Is there a school of magic in Paragon?

With so little lore available for the game, we’ll take a sorceress, similarly garbed to Gideon, as indication of the existence of a school of magic in the world of Paragon. Magic schools are cool. But we really want another female fighter added to the roster.

Speaking of Gideon, his Undertow, er, skin was also recently announced. Coming with today’s V.33 patch, it’s available for sale via the in-game store.

Paragon is available free-to-play on PC and PS4. We’re livestreaming the game on our Twitch channel Fridays from 6 to 9 pm EST. Tune in!
