Back in March of this year, Epic announced a $12 million dollar asset giveaway of their now defunct game Paragon. This included several characters and world creation assets from the game, in Unreal Engine format, complete with rig, control blueprints, multiple animations and more. These are free for use as long as you are using them in an Unreal Engine powered project. Today Epic announced the final release of assets from the game, a final 19 fully rigged and textured characters.
Details from the Unreal Engine blog:
This final round follows two previous releases in March and August through which 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 memorable 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 - the previously unreleased character who was the final Paragon Hero to be announced. In addition, several previously unreleased bonus skins are also included.
You can view the assets in the Unreal Engine store right here. For details on how to use the assets, be sure to watch the following video:
