Motiga’s free-to-play online game Gigantic is finally making an appearance on your favorite console and OS. In partnership with Perfect World Entertainment, an open beta for the title is being rolled out for the Xbox One and Windows 10.

The open beta is part of the Xbox Game Preview program and is also available for Windows 10 PCs in North America and Europe. The team-based multiplayer online battle arena will arrive on these platforms on December 8. To partake in the open beta, go to Gigantic’s official website and sign up.

There will also be cross-platform play, allowing gamers on Xbox One and PC to play together. The Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8 releases will take place at a later date.

Gigantic game details

Throughout the course of its run, gamers can pick from a total of three maps to play on. There will be a weekly rotation of six heroes out of a total character roster of 16. There are also customizable options with which players can change their hero’s style of play through character skill trees.

Gamers will be working with team members to score points around the map in an attempt to control the field as there is no NDA. The beta period will feature four heroes: Aisling, Namely, Charnok, HK-206 and Uncle Sven. Four other heroes will be randomly unlocked for each player.

Motiga gives an overview of the game:

Gigantic is a free-to-play competitive action MOBA developed by Motiga. Even though it’s gorgeously rendered, light-hearted and charming, Gigantic is for enthusiast gamers and pits teams of five hardcore 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.

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.

A closed beta test is already running and will end December 4 at 11:59 p.m. PT. There is still no indication yet as to how long the open beta will run. Nonetheless, it is a great opportunity to get a taste of what looks to be some unique and engaging MOBA-style action.
