Gamescom 2015: Gigantic announces August CBT start

    
21

Go go Gigantic beta! At Gamescom this week, the cell-shaded Gigantic announced that it will be ending its alpha test and transitioning into closed beta by the end of August.

Gigantic will be inviting “hundreds of thousands” of testers into the closed beta program. The CBT will commence on August 28th and continue every weekend thereafter. Gigantic is planning special events and other beta coolness for its tests on both Windows 10 and Xbox One.

And yes, if you want to play it on the PC, you’ll need to upgrade to Windows 10. If you’re not already signed up to get a beta key, you can head over to the shooter MOBA’s website and get your name on the list.

Did they say for certain that you will need win10 for the beta? If this has been in alpha for awhile, it means they have a client that runs on other versions of windows.

Dystopiq Smite is Cartoon Smite. Also this doesn’t really play that much like Smite. It actually has three dimensional movement. If anything this is Fantasy Monday Night Combat.

Radfist That’s okay because it’s not a normal MOBA. It’s closest to something like Monday Night Combat (if you’ve ever played that).

Madda What’s funny is the current test build doesn’t require Windows 10. Though they might be using CBT to test the cross platform play. That’s the only reason I can see they require Win 10.

Got a key but no windows 10.. I could always upgrade but I don’t think a lot of games play well with it right now.

They have a deal with Microsoft for Windows 10 and Xbox One. That’s why it’s being pushed with 10

NoYou Yeah, the alpha has been great fun (despite the idiotic NDA) but I’m not upgrading my OS for a Closed Beta.
