A battle screenshot from the upcoming MOBA Gigantic

Gigantic, an action orientated MOBA most similar to SMITE, has now entered its open beta phase. As you might expect, both the beta and the eventual launch version are fully free-to-play, so if you're up for giving it a try head on over to the Windows 10 Store. And don't worry about losing your progress, there will be no accounts resets from here on out.

On the other hand, if you have no idea what Gigantic is all about and need a bit more information before you decide to pull the trigger, here's the recently posted beta trailer. It doesn't feature much in terms of gameplay, but it should still give you a pretty damn good idea on whether this is the type of game you'd enjoy or not. Have a look:

If you're not a fan of grinding for in-game coins to get new characters or skins, however, you can purchase the Founder's Pack in order to get pretty much all of the relevant content. For a rather pricey €40 you'll get all 16 currently available heroes, 4 future heroes, 2 unique and exclusive skins, as well as the "Founder status" which so far seems to mean 2 exclusive profile icons. Whether the Founder's Pack is worth your hard earned money, I'm not actually sure, but it is always good to have an option to just purchase the game and ignore all of the pointless time-gating.

And finally, if all of this sounds like something you might get behind, you can find out more about Gigantic by heading over to the official website. Have fun, and here's a couple of images to send you off:
