Motiga Inc, has announced that it has partnered with Microsoft to publish its competitive action game, Gigantic, on Windows 10 and Xbox One later this year.
Gigantic puts you in a team of five players, fighting fantasy battles alongside a five-storey-tall guardian monster. The game is free to play for Xbox Live Gold Members and Windows 10 PC players, and is currently going through its Alpha testing phase.
“It’s gratifying to see our partners at Microsoft express the same enthusiasm for Gigantic that Motiga and our community have felt all along,” said Motiga CEO Chris Chung. “The game itself made this collaboration happen, and we can’t wait to get Gigantic in as many gamers’ hands as possible.”
The game is a mixture of first person shooter and RPG, bringing a fresh combination of a fast paced action with the satisfaction of leveling up characters and unlocking new skills and abilities.

The Siegecraft series has been around for a little while now, on various platforms. It’s soon to make it’s debut on the Xbox One, with an added twist.
As part of Microsoft’s vision to integrate Windows and the gaming power of the Xbox One, Siegecraft Commander will allow gamers to utilise cross-device play.
The aim of the game is to create the ultimate medieval fortress and wreak havoc and destruction on your enemies with tower flinging fun. You’ll need to plan the location of your towers to be able to outmanoeuvre your opponent. Luckily, the strategic elements are easy to learn so you should be victorious in next to no time.
The game will include multiplayer modes, where you could team up, have a free-for-all, a real-time battle or a turn based assault mode.
Here’s the release trailer from E3 last year, what do you think?
This isn’t the only game that will feature cross-device play, with Super Dungeon Bros from React! Games also featuring cross-device play on Windows 10 devices.
With the Windows wireless adapter for the Xbox One controller announced by Xbox supremo Phil Spencer too, Microsoft really is heading towards a true gamer-based experience with the Xbox and Windows 10 devices. Can other consoles really compete with that?
The news from GDC comes thick and fast. Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer has announced a new gadget that will allow you to use your fabulous Xbox One controllers on your Windows PC.
This will be a wireless adapter so no messy cables to get in your way while playing your Windows games with your trusty Xbox controller.
The wireless device you use on Xbox One will work on PC as well. We want to see that input isn’t a barrier. Gamers should be able to play the games they want to play.
No price was revealed but it was confirmed that the adapter will be available this year.
The 360 controller was available for Windows machines, with the easiest method being to simply buy the wired version as the touted wireless adapter at the time wasn’t actually that readily available. Good news for any cross-platform titles you may be planning to play in the new, upcoming Windows 10.
