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.
