The lights are on
Independent developer Motiga has announced its new free-to-play game, Gigantic. The team-based multiplayer action title is coming to PC in 2015.
Gigantic is a MOBA where players choose from a number of playable characters, each with their own unique playstyle. They join a team of five other player characters to do battle against an opposing player team. The twist is that each team also has a one of several different guardians – gigantic monsters that fight alongside them. The object of the game is to defeat the opposing team’s guardian while protecting your own.
Matches in Gigantic take place in an open map, where players are encouraged to experiment with a wide range of styles and strategies to defeat the enemy guardian before their opponents can defeat theirs. Heroes level up in battle, gaining access to new, stronger abilities on the fly. After each match, players earn rewards, which allow them to unlock new characters and upgrade their existing ones.
Gigantic has been in development since 2012 and is Motiga’s first release, but the studio is made up of several veteran PC and console franchise developers, including Vice President James Phinney, who was the lead designer of StarCraft and Guild Wars. Gigantic releases free-to-play for PC in 2015. For more on the upcoming cooperative action game, check out the trailer above or the screen gallery below.

I guess free to play MOBA's really are becoming the next f2p MMO. But unlike MOBA's, I actually like MMOs. Unnecessary hate aside the art style of this game looked cool, but it sucks it had to be a MOBA.
Very smart decision putting that one second of gameplay at the end. I don't want to play a top down MOBA, and now I want to play this game
i'll try it, can't argue with F2P
Love the look if only is was a proper game and not a MOBA
