Perfect World Entertainment and Motiga have just announced that the free-to-play actiom MOBA Gigantic is now available on the Windows Store (Windows 10 PC’s and Xbox One) in North America and Western Europe, featuring cross-play between platforms. Along with the open beta comes a Founder’s Pack for the price of $39.99, which gives players access to all 16 current heroes, four upcoming heroes, two limited additional “Imperial” skins and two exclusive Founder’s profile icons – the pack is valued at over $150.
“Gigantic is an entirely new action MOBA experience that combines high twitch skills and deep strategic choices. Paired with innovated design that includes giant Guardians (to fight with and against), and creatures that you can summon, Gigantic is way beyond Overwatch or Paladins,” said Chris Chung, CEO of Motiga. “We’re carving our own destiny.”
Open Beta via the Xbox Game Preview Program features a weekly rotation of six heroes from a roster of 16 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. The big – and we mean it – twist with Gigantic is that instead of the usual towers there are huge guardians for players to protect and attack, with victory being awarded to the team who can defeat their opponents’ guardian.
During open beta new heroes will be added, as well as maps and new impressive guardian creatures. All heroes and creatures are unlockable with in-game currency.
While Gigantic is currently available on Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, the Arc version for Windows 7 and Windows 8 will be released at a later date.
