Gigantic Is Coming Back From the Grave With a Rampage Edition

Gigantic, Motiga‘s beloved cult MOBA, is getting another lease on life on April 9, 2024 thanks to a premium re-release courtesy of Abstraction Games and Gearbox Publishing.

Originally launched in 2017, Gigantic was a third person F2P MOBA with a gorgeous art style and some fairly enjoyable (and overall innovative) gameplay for the genre. Sadly, it failed to find a big enough audience for publisher Perfect World Entertainment to entertain the idea of keeping its servers live, and so the game met a premature end in 2018, only a year after launch. Thankfully, it seems that Gearbox saw potential and now we are getting a “premium” version for US$19.99, featuring crossplay with consoles and free post-launch support. According to the publisher, the game will not feature any sort of microtransactions (a breath of fresh air in the genre) with everything earnable ingame.

GIGANTIC: RAMPAGE EDITION is a premium and definitive release of the original 5v5 MOBA Hero Shooter, GIGANTIC, that provides a dynamic and exciting team-based multiplayer experience for fans of both genres. Choose from a diverse roster of unique heroes, each with a set of upgradeable abilities, and team up with four other players to control objectives and take down the opposing team’s mighty Guardian, all while protecting your own. GIGANTIC: RAMPAGE EDITION includes a new game mode, cross platform play, new heroes, new maps, and gameplay improvements that give fans a bigger and more complete GIGANTIC experience than ever before, while welcoming new players to the action and fun-filled world of a Hero Shooter.
