Xbox Live membership may still be a sticking point for anyone wanting truly free free-to-play games on the Xbox One, but you have to give Microsoft credit for at least gobbling up as many games as they have recently. Smite, World of Tanks, and Neverwinter are all on the way, and now you can add Motiga’s Gigantic to the list.

In addition to being available on Xbox One and Windows 10, fans of Gigantic will be able to go between both platforms with their accounts and “eventually” be able to play mixed games of PC/console players. At some point, you will be required to update to Windows 10 to play Gigantic; while the OS is going to be free, that could still be a bit of a sticking point for some, but was probably a condition of this partnership with Microsoft.

We profiled Gigantic at PAX South, and it was my favorite game of the show. It’s currently in closed alpha and is scheduled for launch, on both platforms, later this year.

    All these comments on here are by the same person no doubt. Some people just dont have a life.. Theres not even any information on Gigantic’s micro transactions. So ok.

    HOW THE F*** DID THIS GAME BECOME P2W?!!

    In just a short 3:48 mins of video these two people namely “LOKOS” and “COMA” summed up years worth of hard work in to bull*** assumption that this game will be P2W, its not even in the description that you can power up something with the use of cash, it says that it is going to be brawler, tactical and the moba feel of the game, so just wait for the game and stop spewing nonsense and get the **** out of here.

    To sum it all up the name’s “LOKOS” meaning Crazy as f*** and “COMA” as brain dead, hope you guys have a future with those kind of attitude.

      It seems to me like COMA, LOKOS and TROK are only on this site to troll and hate on everything. And they might be the same kid.

    A lot of the commentors here seem brain-dead or something with their p2w comments when they probably haven’t even tried the game…

    Yo there’s actually a Xbox One and Windows 10 announcement video for Gigantic, plus other videos for PAX South and stuff, why do you always use that PAX Prime video?
