Paragon: The Overprime is a strategic MOBA game where two opposing teams of heroes battle to destroy each other's bases.

Paragon: The Overprime combines a 3D 3rd-person shooter with the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) genre, celebrating both dynamic attack skills of the unique heroes and thrilled ambience across sci-fi inspired battlefields.

Choose one of the powerful heroes with unique skills, and work with your teammates to achieve the Prime Battlefield goals. Speed across the battlefield with the Prime heroes and feel the thrill of the action.

Lead the team with the tactical use of the powerful skills! Use wisely each hero's skill to build a unique strategy to conquer the opponent's base. Cooperate with your fellows to discover new ingenious ways of team fight. Unite, mastermind and lead your team to victory!

There are several heroes, and each hero is unique with specific skill sets and battle techniques. The choice of items you equip your hero with may determine an outcome of the battle. Try out different sets by customizing various items to make your hero undefeatable. In Training Mode, you can test different heroes and items, improve your playing skills and find new ways of utilizing the battlefield. New heroes will constantly be added in the future, so you will never cease to enjoy trying out new sets and combinations.

Netmarble released new content for Paragon: The Overprime.  As part of a new game update, players can experience a newly added hero, skins, game improvements, and receive rewards for the end of the first competitive PTOP season and more.

Maco, the Guardian of Tindall is the second original character to join the Paragon universe, and the latest original hero following the Zena update. Maco is a support hero and is a member of a mysterious tribe from the unknown island of Tindall, seeking to represent his homeland well on the battlefield. Despite Maco’s cute appearance, he’s highly skilled in magic and draws upon the power of gemstones to empower his attacks. Although Maco can’t speak human languages fluently yet, he’s always seeking to diligently learn through communicating and trying to befriend whoever he meets. He’s very fond of mangos and if you give him one, he might even toss you an explosive gemstone in trade.

Maco’s key skills include:

  • Ta-da!: He throws a gemstone at an enemy to deal physical damage. The gemstone has a set chance to explode, pushing enemy heroes within range and dealing bonus magical damage.
  • Maco Sparkle!: Maco launches a gemstone which travels a certain distance upward and positions itself mid-air. After a short time, the gemstone explodes to deal magical damage to enemies within range while affected enemy heroes are pushed. The skill can be used again before the automatic explosion to detonate earlier. The gemstone can also detonate early if it comes in contact with an enemy.
  • Maco Gift!: Throwing a gemstone recovers a certain amount of health and increases movement speed for allies within range. If the skill affects 3 or more allies, the amount of recovery is halved, and the hero consumes a certain amount of his own health when an ally's health is recovered. If the gemstone hits an enemy, it deals magical damage, decreasing the affected enemy's healing and shield for a set duration.
  • Maco Fly!: He can leap in the direction the hero is facing to deal magical damage towards enemies within range and slow them for a set duration. He can charge in a desired direction right after leaping. A successful hit on an enemy hero additionally grants a shield that absorbs damage and gradually depletes over a set duration.
  • Maco Strike! (Ultimate): Maco concentrates energy into a gemstone and rolls it forward to deal magical damage (scaled based on charge time) to all enemies in its path, while pushing enemy heroes. After rolling a certain distance, the giant gemstone explodes to deal bonus magical damage to enemies within range, and leaves a Maco Stamp on the ground. The rolling gemstone explodes immediately upon hitting a wall, dealing magical damage to enemies within range, stunning enemy heroes for a set duration, and leaving a Maco Stamp on affected enemy heroes.

With the end of the first competitive season, for those players who created their accounts before March 28, will be given a Sparrow’s Hero grade skin, Forest Child. Balance has been readjusted to bolster a more competitive environment for Dekker, Countess, Phase, Kallari, Wraith, Rampage, The Fey, and Revenant and also for numbers of items.

Through April 14, players will be able to purchase the heroes Serath and Kwang, as well as 5 skins at a discounted price in the shop. Other game updates that will enhance new player experiences include an improved tutorial, as well as protection from being down ranked in competitive mode, and more.

Utilizing the assets of ‘Paragon’ developed by Epic Games in 2016, Paragon: The Overprime succeeds the previous title, providing a brand new 3D TPS MOBA experience for users, while benchmarking the smooth, high-quality graphics of the previous title.

Paragon: The Overprime is currently available via Early Access (Epic Games Store and Steam).
