Riktor joins Paragon on May 31, new video shows him going out on the pull


Riktor is a bit like me after a few too many pints – he lumbers around the battlefield, arms flailing wildly, looking for anyone, anything, to cuddle. 

For more games that cost no money, here’s our picks of the best free PC games.

The grabby cyborg performs a bit like Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion – though he looks like he’s been on the roids – firing out stabby hooks and pulling other heroes towards him with his Riplash ability.

Riktor is a melee tank who specialises in crowd control, locking down targets and isolating enemies.

His other moves aren’t to be shrugged at either: Shock Therapy disrupts enemies by silencing them and his Skewer Ultimate uses a web of chains to damage and stun everyone in his path.

All heroes in Paragon are free and you can get your hands on Riktor come May 31. The free open beta is coming some time this summer, while you can get access to it now with a Founder’s pack of $20 or up. Purchase details over on the official site.
