Epic Games unveiled a brand new hero for Paragon today, GRIM.exe, adding another pint-sized lunatic with immense firepower to the game. The Iron-Man-like robot is actually controlled by a small imp like creature. He’s not unlike Iggy and Scorch, the dog-demon riding fire-starter also available in Paragon.
For some reason, this archetype is actually common in competitive multiplayer games and MOBAs in particular. GRIM.exe joins Heroes of the Storm‘s Gazlowe, Dota 2‘s Alchemist, League of Legends‘ Rumble, and Overwatch‘s D. Va. There must be something deeply satisfying in blowing away your enemies as a diminutive pip-squeak with a big living-weapon.
Looking to fry some enemies in Paragon? GRIM.exe will be available to Early Access players on Tuesday, May 10th, and to all Paragon players when the game launches an open beta later this summer.
