Announced today by independent developer Motiga, Gigantic is a “genre-bending online game” with an incredibly pretty debut trailer and a concept that could be called “offence of the ancients”.
Rather than having teams of players attempting to keep the other team from taking out their base, the base becomes part of the players’ five-man team. The Guardian is a five-story creature that joins the team in battle, the goal of which is to take out the opposing Guardian.
An excellent concept, put together by a studio headed by StarCraft and Guild Wars lead designer James Phinney, who seems like exactly the guy to put this type of game together.
And damn, if this trailer isn’t gorgeous.
The free-to-play Gigantic will launch on PC in 2015. Interested parties can sign up for the alpha test at the game’s official website.
