It’s only been a week since the airships were anchored after our first weekend event, but we’re already preparing the sails for the next bit Closed Beta weekend. Whereas our first beta event was an opportunity for you to dive back in after a long break to reacquaint yourself with Gigantic, this time we’re back with a whole new build, a new set of changes and features, a new hero rotation, and a new and improved Gigantic experience!

We’ll make sure you get all the juicy details over the next few days, all of which build up to our next CBT weekend and your return to the Gigantic battlefield!

Game On!

Everything kicks off on Thursday, 11/03, when we’re not only opening the servers to all of you who joined us during one of our previous beta events, but when we put out the call to a whole slew of new players to try out the game for the first time!

Here’s everything you need to know to get ready:

STARTS: Thursday 11/03 @ 9am PDT (12pm EDT / 18:00 CEST)
ENDS: Sunday, 11/06 @ 11:59pm PDT (3am EDT / 9:00 CEST, Monday)
PLATFORMS: Arc, Windows 10, Xbox One
DETAILS: The (not so) fine print:

  • 4 Featured Heroes: Lord Knossos, Mozu, Tyto the Swift, Vadasi
  • 4 Random Heroes: Every player will have an additional four heroes randomly unlocked on their account. (Don’t worry, you can earn currency and unlock any heroes that aren’t on your rotation this week!)
  • 3 Maps: Ghost Reef, Sanctum Falls, Siren’s Strand
  • 0 NDA: As with all our beta events, share the game with your friends!
  • NEW Skill Specializations: Customize your hero with some powerful new skill upgrades.
  • NEW Tutorial: Learn the mechanics of Gigantic in this guided experience, then jump into the…
  • NEW Practice Arena: Test your might (and your skills) in an all new and improved practice arena.
  • NEW Quick Messaging System: Communicate (and talk!) with your teammates using the Quick Messaging System.
  • ...and more changes to look forward to in Wednesday’s patch notes!
