Gigantic's first big post-launch update, Corruption, hits servers tomorrow, and it brings with it a new hero, custom lobbies, and push-to-talk functionality.

The new hero, Oru, is a card-slinging, fortune-telling minor deity with a variety of offensive and control powers. His versatility and wide range of effects make him a challenging hero, but one that can be a real benefit to his team when played well.

The update also introduces a beta version of lobbies, letting players create their own 5v5 matches instead of dealing with the whims of matchmaking. Push-to-talk functionality is also making a much-needed debut in Gigantic, and Motiga's also bringing back the creature gestation mechanic, which "promotes greater strategy at higher levels of play by giving players a window to attack and counter enemy creatures while they are still vulnerable."

You can see Oru and the rest of the features in the Corruption update during a livestream on the Gigantic Twitch tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. PDT.
