The new genre mash up game Gigantic coming to Windows 10 and Xbox One soon

Little known studio Motiga out of Bellevue, WA., is looking to shake up the gaming world by combining some the industries best known staples in their new game, Gigantic. Gigantic is an up coming artfully crafted free-to-play, five-on-five, third-person game designed to showcase the future of Windows, Xbox One, and gaming.

Along with being a genre bending experience, Gigantic is also a team-based playable game. The teams are made up of a range of varied characters, who have roles they play in the game’s overall structure.

The game combines the fast pace of a shooter with a level of character customization resembling more recent hybrid versions of RPGs. Along with the gameplay, gamers are greeted to a very stylistic and colorful world; giving more conventional gamers a break from the bleak post apocalyptic ocean of recent games.

Needless to say this game has a little bit of something for everyone. 

In an earlier announcement today, Xbox lead Phil Spencer went over the future of the merging of Windows 10 into the Xbox platform. He covered the cross gaming experiences DirectX 12 and Windows 10 will bring to the Xbox One, tablets, PCs and the HoloLens and as part of the package, how developers will be able to target the much larger audience of Xbox One and Windows 10 users.

It looks like Gigantic will be among those first wave of games to give developers a taste of the unified platform future of Microsoft.
