New batch of 19 AAA-quality characters now available free-of-charge to Unreal Engine 4 developer community.
CARY, NC -- Epic Games has released its final batch of Paragon Hero assets to the Unreal Engine 4 developer community, with a total of 19 AAA-quality characters valued at over $5 million in development investment now available free-of-charge.
This final round follows two previous releases in March and August -- developers can download Paragon packs to use in their own UE4 projects with no strings attached. To date, Epic has released more than $17 million worth of content from its high-end multiplayer online battle arena game, including dozens of characters with their custom animation blueprints, visual effects and audio dialogue, along with environment set pieces and sample maps.
This final selection of free releases includes 19 Paragon Heroes: Aurora, Drongo, Gideon, Greystone, Iggy & Scorch, Kallari, Lt. Belica, Morigesh, Narbash, Revenant, Sparrow, Steel, Sun-Wukong, Terra, The Fey, Wraith, Yin, Zinx, and Boris – a previously unreleased character who was the final Paragon Hero to be announced. Additionally, several previously unreleased bonus skins are also included in this release pack.
“We’ve been impressed by the different ways Unreal developers are leveraging the Paragon assets for their own projects, both commercial and personal,” said Amanda Bott, Unreal Engine community manager at Epic Games. “We’re thrilled that folks are getting real value out of the content and can’t wait to see what comes out of this latest release.”
