Motiga's action-oriented MOBA Gigantic will start closed beta on August 28, exactly the same date of the start of PAX Prime 2015. This time Gigantic is making the show bigger than before because they finally have their own booth (#3827) at Seattle. Attendees can play the game at Gigantic main booth where 40 PCs are placed, and at the press area where 20 PCs are available.
We got our hands on the game at PAX Prime last year. If you don't mind it being a little bit old, you can read it here 😀
The developer also updated closed beta FAQ and confirmed the closed beta will be available for Windows 10 (you can upgrade to Windows 10 for free now) and Xbox One.
When will the NDA be lifted?
One of the awesome things about game development is how fast paced and ever-changing it can be. Our game is still evolving … a lot. As things begin to take their shape and form, we’ll move closer and closer towards releasing the floodgates known as the NDA.
Will I need Windows 10 to play?
Yes, you will need Windows 10 to play Gigantic in closed beta. It's a free upgrade in most cases, though. Check out Microsoft's site for more information.
Hypothetically speaking, If I was in the alpha test, will I automatically be in the beta?
Yep! If you’re already in alpha testing, you’ll automatically be rolled over into our closed beta. You’ll receive more instructions on that soon via email and on our (now) alpha forums.
Hypothetically speaking, again… If I was already in the alpha or chose PC as my preferred platform, can I still play on Xbox One?
Yes! Your invite will allow you to play on both platforms.
When will beta codes be sent out?
The closed beta starts on August 28 and we plan on sending a massive number of invites around then. We’ll keep rolling out beta invites to tens of thousands of people in the weeks and months to come too!
