With such a large helping of multiplayer games, MOBAs, and multiplayer games with MOBA elements coming out these days, it’s possible for some of those games to seem like they get a bit lost in the shuffle. One of those games is Gigantic, Motiga’s five-on-five MOBA centered around having to take down a massive guardian defended by the other team. We felt it had a lot of promise when shown off at E3 last year (and was a personal “Best of Show” candidate in my opinion), but it has also been overshadowed by the likes of Overwatch and Battleborn, and it wasn’t the greatest sign when Motiga announced significant layoffs due to financial issues.
Thankfully, Motiga has now received the support it needs in the form of Perfect World Entertainment, publisher of MMORPGs such as Star Trek Online and Neverwinter. Perfect World announced that it will now be adding Gigantic to its roster, helping to publish the game and hopefully get it more of the exposure that it needs. And thanks to Perfect World’s support, Gigantic will now be playable on Win64 operating systems with the Arc Games platform, meaning that in addition to being available on Xbox One and Windows 10 as originally planned, those with Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 will be able to join in on the fun now as well.
As the cherry on top, a new trailer was also released for Gigantic along with this announcement, which you can view below. It is indeed shaping up to be a potentially amazing multiplayer game, so here’s hoping this new alliance benefits Motiga’s baby when it comes out sometime later.
