Perfect World Entertainment and Motiga have big news for Gigantic fans: The XBox One and Windows 10 versions of the game will enter open beta on December 8th as part of Microsoft's Game Preview Program. Players will be able to experience the MOBA with others in true cross-platform game play.
During the open beta, players will be able to check out a weekly rotation of six heroes at a time out of the sixteen total that are already in the game. In addition, three maps will be available.
“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,” said James Phinney, VP of Product Development at Motiga, “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 Microsoft’s Game Preview Program is an exciting new phase for the project. We’re really looking forward to partnering with players to finish up Gigantic.”
In addition to this news, Motiga also revealed that from December 1st through December 4th, another round of closed beta testing will be underway.
