Yes. We support Sony DualShock 4 and many other controllers on PC.
What is a Master’s Challenge?
Check out this blog post explaining a Master Challenge and why you want it.
How does the permanent XP boost work?
The Master Challenge includes a permanent XP boost, while playing Heroes you own a Master Challenge for. The boost levels up with the Hero Level over time.
|Hero Level||XP+ (Self)||XP+ (Team)|
Where can I link my PSN ID to my Epic account?
You can link your account here.
Do I have to link my account to my Epic ID?
In order to enable cross progression, you must link your PSN account to your Epic ID. You can do that by visiting this link. If you don’t, you will not be able to carry across in-game progression or purchases and will lose the ability to do so later on.
Will I need to be a PlayStation Plus member to play Paragon?
PlayStation Plus is not required to play Paragon online.
I have a friend on PC, can I play with them even though I am on PS4?
Yes, crossplay is enabled. You will need to know their EpicID and send them an invite through the in-game Friends Tab.
Will PS4 have full mouse + keyboard support?
Yes! We have an early version of this in the game right now.
What is the Essentials Edition?
The Paragon Essentials Edition is a special disc-based edition of Paragon which is only available at retailers in the United States, Canada, and Latin America.
What’s included in the Essentials Edition?
Can I buy a digital version of the Essentials Edition?
The Essentials Edition is only available as a physical product and cannot be purchased digitally.
Paragon is still in a Beta period, why are you selling a Retail version of the game?
The Essentials Edition exists to get Paragon in front of new players, ones that we wouldn’t always reach with a digital-only game.
I’m a PC player, how can I obtain the benefits included in the Essentials Edition?
A PC player can obtain the benefits of the Essentials Edition with one big caveat: the Paragon Coins that are included in the Essentials Edition can only be used on the PS4. There is no ability to move Paragon Coins between PS4 and PC. That said, Paragon is a cross-buy game, so if you have linked your PSN account with your Epic ID, any content you buy with the Paragon Coins on a PS4 will be also available on your Paragon account on PC. If your accounts are linked, you can redeem the Essentials Edition voucher code and the non-Coin content will appear on both your PC and PS4 accounts. You can link your PSN account to your Epic account here.
Is the content on the disc or on a voucher included in the box?
The content is obtained through a voucher code that is included in the box. The disc is just the Paragon game client with no extra content.
What skins are included in the Essentials Edition?
Energized Dekker, War Chief Grux, Autumn Fire Sparrow, Bronze Warden Riktor, and Wasteland Twinblast. The Wasteland Twinblast skin is exclusive to the Essentials Edition until 2017.
Do you have to always use the disc to access Paragon?
No. Upon redeeming the voucher code to your account, you can download the free Paragon game client through the PSN Store to access the game.
What regions will the Essentials Edition be sold in?
Currently, the Essentials Edition is available in the US, Canada and Latin America.
Will Europe ever get the Essentials Edition or something equivalent?
While there are no current plans, we’re working to bring something similar to European territories in the future.
Which 5 Master Challenges are included with the Essentials Edition?
Twinblast, Sevarog, Iggy & Scorch, GRIM.exe and Riktor.
Is the Wasteland Twinblast skin ever going to be available in-game?
The Wasteland Twinblast skin is exclusive to the Essentials Edition until 2017, at which point it will be available in-game.
What are Prime and Epic Packs? How do they benefit me?
The Paragon Prime Pack and the Paragon Epic Pack give players a great value on Master Challenges, skins, boosts, and Coins. Head to the Store page for more details.
How does Reputation work?
Reputation is earned from playing matches; it is Paragon’s “Time Based Currency.” It is used to unlock card packs, Master Challenges, and other items in the future.
What are boosts in Paragon?
We have two types of boosts in Paragon. XP and Reputation boosts double the XP and Reputation earned after playing a match. Boosts can be active by duration (1 or more days) and by victory (1 or more wins).
Can cosmetics be earned?
Yes. Some cosmetics can be earned by playing, while others must be purchased.
Do Win Boosts expire?
No, they do not.
Can I stack Boosts?
Yes, Time and Win boosts stack.
Where can I buy Skins?
Skins are available in the in-game store now!
Will there be unique, custom skins for Heroes?
Yes, we will be revealing these over time. Right now we’re focused on our new Hero pipeline.
If I purchase a Founder’s Pack through for PC on the Paragon website or Epic Games launcher, will I also have access to Paragon the PlayStation 4?
Yes! After you link your account here, you can download Paragon from the PlayStation Store. Once the game is installed on PS4 you’ll be able to log in with your Epic account and play. Content and progression will be carried across to both platforms if your account is linked.

When will Paragon be available in my language?
For Open Beta we support English, French, Italian, German, Spanish (Latin American), Spanish (Spain), Polish, Arabic, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian. We’ll continue to evaluate support for other languages over time.
How do I report a bad experience with another player?
Paragon has a player mute feature. You can mute other players by typing /mute <playername> in chat.
Players can report abuse through the in-game Settings menu or by contacting Player Support here.
What is being done about people who leave games or go AFK?
Our goal is to help Paragon grow into an inclusive and positive community that works together in order to achieve victory. More information regarding AFKers and leavers can be found here.
