From the Source: Perfect World Ent - Go GIGANTIC or Go Home + Contest!


If you were waiting for this game... the wait is now over! Grab this strategic hero shooter... free on Steam, Arc, Xbox One and Windows 10! I will be digging into the Gigantic Ultimate Pack as soon as possible (on Steam via Arc).


Tip: For those of you trying to play this on PC and may be facing challenges with this initial start up of the game... go to your start menu and search for "Repair Arc". Let that run, and it should get you going like it did for me.

 By the way... for those of you running Dedicated Video RAM at 512 MB, you will be happy to know that I was able to play the game without lag at 512 MB (even though it supposedly requires a minimum 1536 MB).

I have 5.0 versions of the Pixel & Vertex Shaders, so that may have helped along with my laptops CPU speed (2.7 GHz performance rated at 9 GHz)... but the Dedicated Video RAM was the only thing below the minimum. That said... try it anyway if you have similar specs because it might work out (and lower the graphics a tad if you need to). There are people who lower the visuals anyway to have an edge over the competition in some cases... so play with the video settings and jump in (smoothly)!

Anyway, check out this news from the source... while I work on uploading my initial gameplay (to get a feel for the game). I totally need to find the right character for me, and that's the beauty of different characters. I'm more of a dodger that represents with ranged weapons. Before you continue below to the source related news and contest, i've highlighted the reason why buying the Ultimate Pack on Steam & Arc is better.

GIGANTIC OFFICIALLY LAUNCHES ON STEAM, ARC, WINDOWS 10 & XBOX ONE

Motiga’s Strategic Hero Shooter Offers Players Biggest Fight of Their Lives
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 20, 2017 – Today Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of free-to-play online games, and Motiga, Inc. announced Gigantic has officially launched on Steam, Arc, Xbox One and Windows 10. The free-to-play strategic hero shooter combines visually stunning heroes, diverse creature families to summon and massive Guardians to aid in epic battles for victory.

We hope you join us and the community of players who have fallen in love with the game and helped us throughout its development.”

Check out the Gigantic Launch Trailer:


Gigantic launches with an exciting new update which introduces text chat, new packs and a brand-new, blade-wielding hero. Players can now access the game’s 19th hero, Ramsay, a cunning heavy-hitter brandishing a seriously lethal blade. Ramsay is the first of many characters to join the game’s original diverse roster, with a new hero planned for release each month following launch.

In addition, Steam players who log in to the game and play a match will receive an exclusive Stone Relics skin for the jet pack pilot Beckett. Logging into Arc and playing a match will grant players a Lightning skin for the stealthy assassin Tripp, while Xbox One and Windows 10 players who do the same can get the Excelsior skin for the spinning cyclone of blades, Tyto the Swift.
Players looking to unlock even more for their Gigantic experience can purchase the Ultimate Pack for $29.99 to gain access to all 19 current heroes and any future heroes for life, along with unique skins, progression boosts, fortune cards and premium currency. Steam and Arc players purchasing the Ultimate Pack will also receive a free Starter Pack code to gift to a friend.

As a thank you to supportive players, purchasers of the Founder’s Pack will be automatically upgraded to the Ultimate Pack.

Finally, Plays.tv has partnered with Gigantic to launch a Top-5 Plays contest starting today. All players can participate in the global contest and clip their best moments using Plays.tv to win gaming hardware and Steam gift cards.
Gigantic is a free-to-play strategic hero shooter developed by Motiga. Gorgeously rendered, light-hearted and charming, Gigantic is for all types of gamers, pitting teams of five heroes and their massive Guardians against each other in epic battles across a variety of maps. The game combines explosive combat with fast-paced teamwork, strategy and skill, as players must work together and fight relentlessly to defeat the opposing Guardian with spells, guns and swords.

I have a trip coming up soon and I look forward to tossing my laptop, HyperX Cloud Stinger headset & Xbox controller into the Solo Rival backpack for some serious quality time with Gigantic during my down time. Game on... affordably!
