Gigantic is back again, but unfortunately no longer exclusive to Windows 10. This is because the game is no longer published by Microsoft, instead now published by Perfect Games Entertainment. Now, even if it will be sold through Perfect Games Entertainment’s own Arc Games, Gigantic will still find itself on several other platforms without exiting the Windows sphere.

From what we have come to understand, Gigantic is set to release on Windows 10, Windows 8.x, and Windows 7.

This is what developer of the game, Motiga, had to say:

One of the biggest is being worked on already: an opportunity to bring Gigantic to as many versions of Windows as possible. That’s right; we’re developing a version of the game that will be playable on every 64-bit Windows operating system. This version will be made available through Perfect World’s Arc games platform, which is available on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10.

The game will still launch on the Xbox One on the same date as the Windows PC version, so console players have nothing to worry about. Furthermore, it is very much possible now for Gigantic to find its way to the PlayStation 4 in the distant future.

We’ve played a few hours of the Gigantic’s beta and came away unimpressed. The game is silky smooth and one could definitely feel the 60 frames per second at work, but that doesn’t matter since the game was boring. If you’re not a ranged character, you’ll find it difficult to get hits on others, making it extremely frustrating to play.

Chances are these issues might have been fixed in future updates, but we stopped playing early on so we cannot say for sure.

If you’re a fan of MOBA titles, don’t go into Gigantic expecting the best game ever. If you’re looking for something else, we recommend Battleborn, a decent enough MOBA gaining praise from critics and gamers alike. (If you have an NVIDIA graphic card and do choose to check Battleborn out, be sure to install the latest update because it prepares your PC for the game.)
