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

Gigantic: Rampage Edition features dynamic and exciting team-based multiplayer gameplay, a unique art style and a diverse roster of playable heroes, each with a set of upgradeable abilities. Players will team up with four other players to control objectives and take down the opposing team’s mighty Guardian, all while protecting their own.

In addition to the original game content, Rampage Edition will introduce new features, including crossplay support, new heroes, new game modes, new maps, upgraded content and gameplay improvements. As a premium experience, the game will have zero microtransactions as players will be able to unlock all content through gameplay or with in-game currency earned by playing.

Gigantic: Rampage Edition will give fans of the original game a bigger and more Gigantic experience than ever before, while welcoming new players, including hero shooter and MOBA fans, to the thrilling team-based multiplayer game. Additionally, following the launch of Rampage Edition, a Ranked Mode and new hero skins will be released as free updates.

“The original Gigantic game from Motiga maintained a passionate and loyal community that kept the spirit of the game alive throughout all these years,” said Yoon Im, president of Gearbox Publishing San Francisco. “It was through all of their excitement coupled with our desire to bring Gigantic back one day that we are thrilled to finally confirm we’re bringing back and making it better than ever with Gigantic: Rampage Edition. It’s a fun refresh of the original game with new maps, new heroes, and best of all, there are no microtransactions. Players can jump in and play, and unlock all of the game’s content just by playing and making progress over time. To our dedicated fans who never gave up on Gigantic, thank you for all of the support! To new players who love hero shooters and MOBAs, we hope to see you on the airship!”

"It’s an honor to help Gigantic make an incredible comeback,” said Bart Vossen, Senior Game Designer at Abstraction Games and Game Design Lead on Gigantic: Rampage Edition. “With Rampage Edition, we knew right away that we wanted to make everything fans loved about Gigantic bigger, better, and even more accessible for all players. We can't wait for players to dive in and see all new content and improvements that make this the definitive edition.”

“I’m happy to finally let this fantastic secret out that Gigantic is back as I have so much love for the game and its incredible community,” said Christopher Chung, Co-Creator of Gigantic and former CEO and cofounder of Motiga. “I greatly appreciate that Gearbox Publishing and Abstraction Games have kept the core of what made Gigantic special. It’s also gratifying to see that they have added new Heroes and a Rush Mode, which were initial concepts we had at Motiga that we knew fans would go crazy for. I can’t wait to play again with our awesome Gigantic community, and I’m positive all players, including new players who didn’t have a chance to play the original game, will fall in love with Gigantic: Rampage Edition!”
