Gamers who registered an account on Epic’s Paragon site could have the opportunity to start testing the MOBA in the not too distant future.
An email sent out by Epic to gamers that have registered on the official site states that they are “spinning up our first online tests very soon”. This ties in with a tweet posted by Epic.
@AitaRyan Online Testing begins in January. We'll be inviting players over the next few months. Keep an eye on your email. 🙂

Applicants are asked to take a seven question survey which includes questions on player location and what games they have been playing of a similar ilk.
The MOBA-like shooter market looks to be the next big thing and there’s going to be a lot of competition in the space with Overwatch, Paladins: Champions of the Realm, Gigantic and more all vying for your attention in the months ahead. It’s probably a good idea Epic get testing started “soon” to get that hype rolling and take some feedback from players.
An open beta is said to be starting some time next summer with Early Access starting in spring.
