We’ve previously had the chance to check out Gigantic via the Xbox One closed betas, but very soon everything will be open as it makes the most of Xbox One Game Preview.
Arriving come 8th December 2016, Gigantic will be hitting Xbox One Game Preview and Win10 Game Preview with a bang. The free-to-play competitive action MOBA offers cross-play between platforms and will also release on Arc (PC Windows) at a later date.
The free Open Beta will feature a weekly rotation of six heroes from a roster of 16 and three maps: Siren’s Stand, Ghost Reef and Sanctum Falls. Each hero comes with their own unique playstyle that can be further customised via skill trees during each match. Teams work together to attack enemies while claiming points on the map to summon powerful Creatures. Players can power up their team’s Guardian by controlling the battlefield and defeating enemies, whilst victory is awarded to the team that overpowers their opponents’ Guardian.
Gorgeously rendered, light-hearted and charming, Gigantic is for enthusiast gamers who enjoy explosive combat, plenty of teamwork, strategy and skill. It’ll pit teams of five hardcore heroes and their massive Guardians against each other in epic battles across a variety of maps.
“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, but 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 and participation in the Xbox Game Preview program is an exciting new phase for the project. We’re really looking forward to partnering with players to finish up Gigantic.”
If you can’t wait until then, then players can also check out Gigantic for a limited time during this weekend’s Closed Beta test, which runs from Thursday, December 1 at 9:00am (PST) through Sunday, December 4 at 11:59 pm (PST).
