E3 2015: Gigantic’s closed beta starts in August

    
16

The “shooter MOBA” Gigantic is making strides toward launch, and one of the bigger steps that it will take will be in launching its closed beta test this August.

Motiga announced that the beta will begin later this summer on both Windows 10 and Xbox One. The initial test will cover North America and Europe, although there are plans to expand to other regions, especially with efforts to include Spanish, German, and French localizations. Players who want to join the test will need to have Windows 10 and an Xbox Live account (for PC) or an Xbox Live Gold account (for Xbox One).

Gigantic is on display at E3 this week, and you can see its convention trailer below!

solipsis  The game play may well be great, it’s the art style that is a tad off putting, it looks like a WB cartoon from the ’60s or ’70s, but as I noted below it should run well on older hardware and lets the devs focus on other things. If the game is good, I could get to liking it well enough.

PurpleCopper  Yea, but the art style is sure to run on older machines quite well.

Nreff  Sure as heck saves on computation complexity and developer time, both of which matter. Shaders are some serious code, and can eat up a lot of time just to alter the look a little bit.

Look. I’ve been waiting for this game so STOP DISSING IT! If you diss it i’ll stomp on you! In game.

I’m kinda disappointed with this Microsoft alliance. It’s really corny.

The graphics could use a little more work.

It looks a little too…sparse.

wolfyseyes new ideas to the genre are welcomed.  I dig the art style as well.  MS will go casual like Blizz is my educated guess.

They shut down the Games For Windows Live program, and the GFWL store. IIRC any Microsoft Live ID is still (or can be anyway) an Xbox Live ID.
They seem to be making a big cross promotional push again now to speed the adoption of Windows 10 and broaden the audience for some of their Xbox exclusives.
