It seems like yesterday that the closed beta for Gigantic, the cartoon-like, third-person multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) was announced for Xbox One and Windows 10. Now, after two years of the game having been in closed beta, it has finally launched and is now available to download and play for free on Steam, Xbox One, Perfect World's Arc platform, and Windows 10.

Gigantic is a fast-paced, hero-based, action shooter MOBA that features vibrant, colorful, cartoonish graphics and visuals similar to Overwatch and Team Fortress 2. Alongside the official release, the game received a hefty update with additional content including a new melee hero called 'Ramsay'. According to Motiga, a new hero will be released every month moving forward.
As a third-person MOBA shooter, Gigantic will remind you of Battleborn and Smite. The game is free-to-play but there are two packs available, a 'Starter' pack that contains eight heroes for $10 / £7.99 and the 'Ultimate' pack that includes every available hero and a few other extras with a price tag of $30 / £23.99.
These are the official PC minimum system requirements:
- Operating System: Windows 7 or higher (64-bit)
- Processor: 2.6GHz
- RAM: 6GB
- Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 580, DirectX 11.1 compatible (Nvidia or AMD only)
Even though the development of the game had its ups and downs with a wait of over two years for the official release, it will be interesting to see how Gigantic measures up against the other popular MOBA titles.
