We're thrilled to announce that Open Beta for Gigantic will launch on Xbox One and Windows 10 on December 8 in North America and Europe. Cross-play for the free-to-play competitive action MOBA will be available between platforms. Gigantic will launch on Arc (Windows 7, 8) at a later date.
“With Gigantic, we are trying to create an entirely new competitive experience. Throughout development, Gigantic has gotten attention for its unique art style, whimsical setting and fast-paced gameplay, our goal has always been something more,” said James Phinney, VP of Product Development at Motiga, “We’ve sought to build a game full of intense moments and meaningful strategic choices, where there are many paths to victory and it’s always possible to come back and win. Open Beta will be an exciting new phase for the project, and we’re really looking forward to partnering with players to continue to develop and improve the game.”
Open Beta features a personalized rotation of 16 heroes and three maps, Siren’s Stand, Ghost Reef and Sanctum Falls. Each hero features a unique playstyle that can be further customized through comprehensive skill trees during each match. Teams can work together to attack the enemy while claiming points on the map to summon powerful Creatures to aid in battle. Players can power up their team’s Guardian by controlling the battlefield and defeating enemies. Victory will be rewarded to the team who can overpower their opponents’ Guardian.
