Paragon-spinoff Predecessor has soft launched into F2P open beta early access on Steam (and everywhere else)


Predecessor – the latest shooter spawned from the ashes of Epic Games’ defunct MOBA Paragon – has officially launched into open beta today on a list of platforms as long as my arm: PC, Steam, the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. In fact, it’s the first chance Xbox players will have to try out the game, which is free-to-play in while in beta – in fact, this kinda reads more like a soft launch.

“Open Beta is the first step of Predecessor’s launch process as Omeda Studios has more to come in 2024,” says Omeda Studios, led by Paragon superfan Robbie Singh.

“Throughout 2024, Predecessor newcomers and veterans can expect many more updates and improvements. Kicking things off with the Open Beta, crossplay debuts where PC, PlayStation and Xbox players can jump in together for fast-paced, third-person MOBA action. PC players globally can now enjoy the game in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and simplified Chinese. Xbox and PlayStation will receive language support shortly after. Languages will continue to be implemented through development. 2024 will also see constant visual improvements, the heavily-requested ranked mode, a new secret game mode, matchmaking, new skins and item reworks.”

Predecessor is flagged early access on Steam as an open beta free-to-play game. Something some other games could stand to learn from.
