Epic's giving away $12M worth of Paragon game assets for free

The initial Paragon assets released for Unreal Engine 4 developers to use were developed at a cost of over $12 million, but that's not the end of it as Epic will be releasing more asset packs over the spring and summer.

Epic Games' action MOBA Paragon never quite found the audience it needed to thrive, but it wasn't for a lack of trying.

What do you think about Epic Games "gift" to Unreal Engine 4 developers?

Israeli security guard stabbed to death in Jerusalem
He refused to give more details. "We heard the sound of shelling, the whole of the house shaking and the windows too", she said. Israel's air force carried out an overnight strike against another underground Hamas facility in Gaza.

What's more, "the engine provider estimates that more than $12m worth of assets are on offer", including that of character models, animations, skins, VFX and dialogue for all twenty hero characters that fans have come to know and love.

For novice and seasoned developers alike, this is a pretty big jackpot as there are no strings attached for using them in their own projects. And now, in a surprise twist, Epic is giving away all Paragon in-game assets for free. Shinbi's character pack also includes a tailorable animation blueprint that beginning animators can play with for reference. Environment assets now include a sample map to use as a base and over 1,500 objects from the Monolith and Agora maps.

Epic has previously released similar free asset packs drawn from mobile hit Infinity Blade and from its evocative "Soul" engine demos. Additional characters from Paragon will be released over the coming months.

Paragon doesn't officially close up shop until April 26, but the assets are already available. Still, we wouldn't mind seeing other developers emulating Epic here and freeing the hard work developers put into failed and shuttered projects.
