Gigantic

In the midst of development troubles, departures and hurdles for Motiga’s action MOBA Gigantic, things seemed rather stable once it went free to play. Players received a new update several weeks ago which also added a new hero. Unfortunately, the end is near and Gigantic’s servers will be shut down on July 31st.

The developer has announced that purchasing Hero Packs (which includes Start, Ultimate and Founder’s Packs) and Rubies is no longer possible. All current heroes will be made free and the cost for unlocking anything with in-game currency has been reduced. You can also purchase any Ruby-exclusive items with Crowns and use any currency in the Shop. Avenues for gaining Rubies and Crowns will remain available.

Those who purchase the Founder’s Pack will receive two colour variants for each of the exclusives skins which will not be available to purchase anywhere else.
“We are grateful for the support of our players and hope everyone continues to enjoy Gigantic until the game servers are discontinued on July 31, 2018,” said the developer.

With Epic Games’ Paragon also seeking imminent closure, it’s a huge bummer for MOBAs in general right now. We’ll be waiting to see what comes next from Motiga and wish them luck in the process.
