Some of the former lead developers behind Starcraft 2, Guild Wars 2 and State of Decay have banded together to form a new indie game studio known as Motiga. After securing $20 million in backing the studio announced its first title named Gigantic, a new Free-to-Play third-person action game which straddles the line between vertically focused arena-brawler and MOBA.




While Gigantic may have a few MOBA staples like upgradable abilities and two teams of five heroes, you wont find item shops or definable lanes filled with consistent creep waves to mow down. Gigantic is aiming a little…larger shall we say, with the introduction of giant Guardians. These massive creatures serve as the main focus point for players as each team posses a unique Guardian with its own special abilities whom players must protect while working with it to take out the opposing team’s Guardian.

Movement is also a huge focus in Gigantic, as the game’s website mentions players will be able to “sprint, dodge, aim, destroy barriers, hurdle obstacles, and leap from danger to safety.” With an emphasis on vertical movement and the addition of physics-based abilities which can be upgraded and augmented to include new added bonuses, players in Gigantic will posses the freedom to create new combos best suited for the occasion.

A mostly cinematic trailer for Gigantic can be viewed above and Motiga is already offering players the chance to sign-up for the alpha on the official site.

    finally some competition for smite, people its third person moba… we dont get to see this to often specially good one like smite.

    • Nah on July 17, 2014

      Smite ? You are talking about the most unoriginal moba out there ,the one with barely 3K viewers in the games section for the last 2 years ?
      Smite is no threat for any moba ,its just another Hi-Rez failure that is going to be forgotten soon enough.
      And when i’m saying smite’s concept is not original i’m talking about the AD AP concept in LoL that they turned to “magic and physical damage” ,the itemization that reminds a bit of league ,but way more uncomfortable and annoying.
      the skills that reminds me other skills of champions from LoL.
      Smite is a shitty game and the 3rd pesron does not fit in for a MOBA game with this kind of style.
      Anyway – I Got into the alpha ,hopefully this game would be as fun as it looks.

        SO much WRONG in this paragraph. better stick to something else…
        I am glad you are not playing SMITE…

        • Aregadon on July 19, 2014

          Yeah Smite isn’t that Original with AD and AP but I’ve still not seen an MOBA who made a better concept out of it if it’s good why should they change it? But it’s still Third Place on the Trillions of MOBA that were released.
          And also the Concept of Third Person on MOBA makes it way more Action Based so pls if you don’t know anything Shut up and leave

    looks cool. will give this a try.

  6. 2karoke2 on July 17, 2014

    Meh, only thing that looks interesting is the art style.

  7. Malice on July 17, 2014

    No gameplay, no interest.

    • Cyril on July 17, 2014

      Look at the end of the video.

  8. Me on July 16, 2014

    WOW a Moba for 10 year olds. Good for you. Looks shitty….. Smite is the ultimate 3rd person Moba.

  9. Mystika on July 16, 2014

    These devs seem to continue jumping ship after ever game…

  10. Shad0wriderz on July 16, 2014

    No more MOBAs, pls no…. and I thought I was sick of seeing all those new f2p shooters a couple years back. But now, I’d rather suffer the hype of 5 new f2p shooters over that of 1 of these MOBAs.

    • Cyril on July 17, 2014

      Who forces you to suffer the hype?

  11. NOBA on July 16, 2014

    Can we just stop with the MOBAs already?

    They’re the special olympics of strategy gaming.

    • Rude.. on July 16, 2014

      One.. MOBA is a genre you will be getting them just as long as MMORPGS come out. Get over it.

      • Dokkodo on July 17, 2014

        Your statement makes no sense, I award you no points.

    • Name (Required) on July 17, 2014

      I love mobas, don’t be such a cunt.

  12. Southstar on July 16, 2014

    Another moba? geez

  13. ffs on July 16, 2014

    This looks really bad. Even the trailer doesn’t make it look like a good game.

  14. Jooq on July 16, 2014

    Hmm 🙂 Since my comment wasn’t allowed, I assume MMOBomb only wants “positive” opinions 🙂

  15. GMAlonzo on July 16, 2014

    Looks stupid. Please make Saints row mmo

  16. Chuckvs on July 16, 2014

    I’d keep my eye on this MOBA.

  17. Jooq on July 16, 2014

    FFS 🙂 Another one! This is “amazing” XD And the characters! Some kind of dragon shooting..the bow O_O And then bigger one…and there is always some horned beast and drunk man with bottles or kegs… C’mon…what the hell is going on with developers!

  18. F on July 16, 2014
