PlayStation Plus Members Are Getting Free Early Access To Paragon In July

Starting on July 5, the starter pack for Epic Games' MOBA Paragon will be free for the month for PlayStation Plus members.

The starter pack will allow players to enter the early access season before its free open beta arrives on August 16 for both PlayStation 4 and PC. Early access will have challenges for three hero classes: Murdock, Rampage, and Gadget. Master challenges for these classes include an immediate challenger skin and permanent hero level XP boost. Completing a master challenge unlocks a taunt and master skin for each separate class.  

Epic Games released the trailer seen below announcing the PlayStation Plus release.

Earlier this month, Paragon received retail packaging and began selling in stores despite not being fully finished and tested. The back of the box stated it was in early access, and it came with unique features such as skins, five hero master challenges, and rep boosts for a $ 60 price tag labeled as Paragon Essentials Edition.

In 2015, we talked to Epic Games about what will make Paragon unique in the rapidly growing MOBA genre, and you can check out a gameplay trailer for the Paragon here.

[Update] Bully Hits PS4, XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus Lands On Vita

Update: Gamers in North America can now purchase two of these games. Bully is available now for PlayStation 4 ($ 14.99). XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus is out on Vita, too ($ 19.99).

We're still waiting to see if Manhunt shows up on PlayStation 4 today. We'll update should anything change.

Original Story (March 21 @ 8:11 p.m. Central):

Isn't today full of surprises? Right now, XCOM Enemy Unknown Plus is available for Vita on the UK PlayStation Store. Better yet? Manhunt and Bully are also playable on the PS4 as PS2 Classics.

We'll have to wait for confirmation on a release on the U.S. PlayStation store, but this is a pretty good sign. 

Bully and Manhunt are selling for £11.99, while XCOM Enemy Unknown Plus has a £15.99 price tag. 

Click on the game titles to visit the UK store to see for yourself: XCOM Enemy Unknown Plus, Bully, and Manhunt

What are you most excited for?

Our Take
This is a good sign for the U.S. getting these games as well. So far, no updates to the store have confirmed this, but remember the UK is six hours ahead. Not to mention, something could be caught up in ESRB. While this doesn't guarantee it, I'd say the odds are staked in our favor. All these things are great. So many people have wanted to play XCOM Enemy Unknown on-the-go. And trophies for Bully and Manhunt? Icing on the cake.
