What happens when you mix Gears of War with League of Legends? You get something amazing.
"Paragon is the MOBA from Epic Games that puts you in the fight with explosive action, direct third-person control, and deep strategic choice. Paragon is coming to PC and PlayStation 4, with paid Early Access in Spring 2016 and Open Beta in Summer 2016."
So if you haven't heard, a new game was announced very recently. A third-person MOBA made by Epic Games. Coming out on PC and PS4, you take control of the champion from a different perspective, similar to Smite. But I gotta say, this looks incredible.
Gears of War has my favourite shooting mechanics ever. It's quite possibly one of the reasons I enjoyed the gameplay of Mass Effect 2 and 3 so much, because they were inspired by the way Gears of War is. Now, I don't think the run and cover mechanics will be too similar to Gears of War (if said mechanics even exist), but I can definitely put my trust in Epic Games to deliver an amazing experience.
If this kicks off and is popular... Ahh man, I hope so.
