If you didn’t read my past article about how I found out about Gigantic and want a little more information about the game feel free to check it out here. In this article I will be going over some of the changes that have been made to the game from the last time I played the game till now. As for an actual preview or main article for Gigantic that will be a different article on it own entirety. Now onto some of the changes, so get your self a cup of coffee or maybe some tea and lets go over a few things.
Motiga has added a new Character named Beckett, she was added at some point this year. Sadly I didn’t get time to play as her, but when I get the chance to play as her I definitely will. Motiga has added a few new maps that I have never seen before and had a blast learning my way around them. Some of the summons where removed for this beta test and I am assuming will be added in later. Along with that Motiga has added voice overs for a few of the characters and I definitely think it was a good addition to the game. Listening to the characters say something when they spawn or are just around and about the map bring more life into matches.
The main screen has been changed quite a bit by adding a shop that allows you to buy characters and skins for them. There is also a daily quest system that gives you a goal to achieve for the day that will help you earn in game currency that can be used in the shop. You can also see what medals and achievements you have gained while playing the game. I don’t know if its the reward of an achievement or being able to show people that yes you have ended a few peoples kill streaks makes it all worth it to me, and definitely makes me want to try and get them. You can also see what level or how much you play a character.
Here are some of the details.
