'Gigantic' (ALL) Sets Open Beta Date

Gigantic is a MOBA hero shooter where heroes battle alongside a massive guardian in a fight for supremacy.

Gigantic is a free-to-play shooter MOBA where heroes battle alongside a massive guardian in a fight for supremacy. Gigantic tests teamwork, tactics, and timing as players confront a five-story foe and conquer a fantasy battlefield.

Whether players favor shooters, action RPGs, or traditional MOBAs, Gigantic has heroes for various play styles — and strategic depth they'll find satisfying. The third-person perspective emphasizes movement and action. Players leap, dodge, and sprint across the battlefield, then unleash a devastating combo ... before scurrying to cover as the enemy guardian draws near.

Even though it's gorgeously rendered, light-hearted and charming, Gigantic is for enthusiast gamers and pits teams of five heroes and their massive Guardians against each other in epic battles across a variety of maps. The game combines explosive combat with fast-paced teamwork, strategy, and skill, as players are required to work together and fight relentlessly to defeat opposing Guardians with spells, guns and swords.

The Open Beta for Gigantic launches as part of the Xbox Game Preview program on Xbox One and on Windows 10 in North America and Europe on December 8, 2016.

“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.”

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).

The free Open Beta 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 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. Victory is awarded to the team that overpowers their opponents’ Guardian.

Key Features:

  • Meet Your Guardian: A five-story mythical monster, each guardian gathers a team of five heroes, fights at their side, and resurrects them when they fall in battle. Combine a hero's skill with the power of a naga, griffin, or another guardian to dominate the battle.
  • Choose Your Hero: Choose from elusive snipers, powerful spellcasters, and heavy-metal juggernauts. No matter what kind of game you've played before, you'll find something familiar—and something new. As heroes fight, they level up and improve their skills. Players choose how to upgrade, improving their healing skill, developing a new area attack, or immobilizing their enemies.
  • Control Your Battleground: Survival requires teamwork: player powers interlock and supplement each other, providing tactical flexibility. Summon unique creatures with special powers to seize key points and assist your team. Snipe from overlooks, sneak through tunnels, and guard chokepoints.
  • Unleash Your Guardian: Capture points to empower your guardian, sending it on devastating rampages. Rampages destroy the terrain and reshape the battlefield, providing new tactical opportunities and vulnerabilities. Guardians also strike down other guardians, leading the path to victory.
