While Gigantic will be free-to-play upon its final release, it’s always nice to jump into a beta experience. There’s just something about playing an unreleased game that makes you feel good. The Gigantic Open Beta will begin next week, on December 8th. Additionally, there is also a Closed Beta happening this weekend from Thursday, December 1 through Sunday, December 4.
“With Gigantic, we are trying to create an entirely new competitive experience,” says James Phinney of Motiga. “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. 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.”
As part of the Xbox Game Preview, the beta will have a weekly rotation of six heroes from a roster of 16. The three maps included are Siren’s Stand, Ghost Reef, and Sanctum Falls.
Gigantic is a game that pits two teams of five heroes and a guardian against each other. Using spells, guns, and swords, you must fight your enemy and claim points on the map to summon your team’s Guardian. A match is won when one team’s Guardian is toppled.
We’ve been excited to play this vibrant MOBA for awhile now. Will we be seeing you during the Gigantic Open Beta? If so, you better hope you’re on our team.
