The free-to-play MOBA gets a price tag

Epic Games is bringing Paragon to stores, the company announced on the PlayStation Blog. The free-to-play multiplayer battle arena game is getting a retail release on June 7, with the Essentials Edition set coming to PlayStation 4.

The $59.99 package includes special challenges, an exclusive skin, rep boosts and $60 worth of in-game currency. Epic says that the entire Essentials Edition is worth $160, and that those who pre-order will receive an additional $10 worth of currency to spend in-game.

The game is currently available in early access, but players have to buy in to join that campaign. Three options are available to purchase ranging from $19.99 to $99.99, giving MOBA fans entry into Paragon now ahead of the open beta's summer release.

These packs include varying amounts of bonuses, like extra beta keys, skins, playable characters and other exclusives. Despite the amount of paid content available, Epic Games maintained in March that Paragon will be fully playable without spending any real money upon launch. The game is planned for a 2016 release on PC and PS4.

Check out the trailer above to see what the Essentials Edition package has to offer.
