After first emerging as a beta back in August 2015, Motiga’s Gigantic finally launches as a full release today on the Xbox One, Windows 10, Steam, and through Perfect World Entertainment’s Arc platform.
“We’re thrilled to welcome all players to the vibrant world of Gigantic,” said Chris Chung, CEO of Motiga. “The team has worked incredibly hard to develop an experience unlike any other. We hope you join us and the community of players who have fallen in love with the game and helped us throughout its development.”
With a unique art style, Gigantic pits two teams of five against each other as they battle alongside a guardian who they are trying to protect while destroying the other team’s guardian. The launch of the game comes with new features including text chat, new packs, and Ramsay — a brand-new, blade-wielding (and the game’s 19th) hero.
There are plenty of launch bonuses as well. Steam players who log in and play a match will receive the Stone Relics skin for Beckett, Arc players will receive a Lightning skin for Tripp, while Xbox One/Windows 10 players will get the Excelsior skin for Tyto the Swift.
The previous Founders Pack has been discontinued but a new Ultimate Pack is available for $29.99USD which gives players access to all 19 current heroes and any future heroes for life, along with unique skins, progression boosts, fortune cards and premium currency. Arc and Steam players who purchase the Ultimate Pack will also receive a free Start Pack code to give to a friend. In addition, everyone who previously purchased the Founders Pack will be automatically upgraded to the Ultimate Pack.
Even though the game has released through multiple channels and is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, gamers will be able to play across Arc and Steam, or across Xbox One and Windows 10, but not Xbox or Windows 10 to Steam and vice versa.
