PlayStation News Round-Up, March 14th - 20th

What's up, G2G:Evolved community members? This is a quick overview of what's happened this week in the PlayStation world.

Paragon: Founder's Packs, Early Access
Epic Games' new MOBA, Paragon, for PlayStation 4 started to go into Early Access on Friday this week. You can be part of it if you purchase one of the Founder's Packs.
Each Founder's Pack will give you certain emotes and skins as well as Hero Master Classes and the guaranteed access to the Early Access program on PS4. Three options are available including the standard Founder's Pack that gives you three characters to start with, the Challenger Founder Pack that gives you 13 characters, and finally the Master Founder's Pack that unlocks you the 13 characters from the Challenger Pack and any additional character upon release of the game.

Fallout 4 Automatron Coming to PS4 on March 22nd
Fallout 4 gets its first DLC next week on Tuesday for PlayStation 4. This is all about robots, a mad scientist, the Mechanist, build an army of evil robots to roam the Commonwealth. You can go hunt them down and collect their parts to build your very own (evil) army of robots, with which you then clash against the Mechanist. The robots you create even have customization options for voices and their paint coats.
More DLC is to come in April, the Wasteland Workshop expansion lets you further build your settlements. While in May, we will get the Maine for Far Harbor DLC, a completely new map outside of the Commonwealth and the biggest ever made landmass for post-release content by Bethesda.

Tetsuya Mizuguchi's Inspiration to Make Rez Infinite on PS VR
Over on the PlayStation Blog, Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of Rez Infinite and president and CEO of Enhance Games, put up a nice post about his inspirations of making this game possible on PlayStation VR. Rez was created 15 years ago and now with Infinite he wants to revive this experience but also enhance it with the upcoming launch of PS VR. We have seen his full body vibration suit which reminded me heavily of Wade Watts and his story about the VR world in the book Ready Player One. We are very close to experience that by ourselves.
You should go to the blog and read the piece yourselves. Very interesting.
