Perfect World Entertainment and Motiga have announced that 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 8th.
The free-to-play competitive action MOBA offers cross-play between platforms and releases on Arc (PC Windows) at a to-be determined date following the Xbox Game Preview program.
James Phinney, VP of Product Development at Motiga, said:
“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. 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.”
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.
In Gigantic, players can power up their team’s Guardian by controlling the battlefield and defeating enemies, and victory is awarded to the team that overpowers their opponents’ Guardian.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
