'Gigantic' (ALL) Season of Souls Update Adds New Map, Hero and More

Gigantic is a team action game where heroes battle alongside a massive guardian in a fight for supremacy.

Gigantic is a free-to-play shooter MOBA where heroes battle alongside a massive guardian in a fight for supremacy. Gigantic tests teamwork, tactics, and timing as players confront a five-story foe and conquer a fantasy battlefield.

Whether players favor shooters, action RPGs, or traditional MOBAs, Gigantic has heroes for various play styles — and strategic depth they'll find satisfying. The third-person perspective emphasizes movement and action. Players leap, dodge, and sprint across the battlefield, then unleash a devastating combo ... before scurrying to cover as the enemy guardian draws near.

Even though it's gorgeously rendered, light-hearted and charming, Gigantic is for enthusiast gamers and pits teams of five heroes and their massive Guardians against each other in epic battles across a variety of maps. The game combines explosive combat with fast-paced teamwork, strategy, and skill, as players are required to work together and fight relentlessly to defeat opposing Guardians with spells, guns and swords.


The nefarious necromancer Ezren Ghal has arrived in Gigantic along with Ember Grove, the game’s first new map and several other features including profile icons, text chat during hero confirmation and more.

With today’s update, players can control Ezren Ghal, a caster hero wielding necromantic powers to damage his opponents, collect souls and trade them for powerful abilities. The new hero twists the very being of his foes by draining souls in combat, which can be turned against enemies as devastating ability attacks. The brand-new map, Ember Grove, sets the stage for this fiendish update, bringing a dense and mysterious battleground to Gigantic’s map rotation. Ancient and home to bugwitches, this new map offers verticality, as well as nooks and crannies to outmaneuver other players. 

Additional features available with the Season of Souls update include:

  • Player Icons – All players now have the ability to choose their account icons and show their own unique style. Additionally, Founders can now show their status as early supporters of the game with exclusive icons.
  • Hero Confirm Text Chat – By community request, chat has been extended to the hero confirmation phase, allowing teams to strategize their hero composition before locking it in. 
  • Ezren Ghal Skins – Several customization options for the new hero are now available in the shop, including the Opulent Robes skin, color variants and Eternal skins for players looking to show off their mastery of the wretched reaper.
  • Other Features – Improved bot matches, shop UI updates and new Hero interactions in battle.
All skins and content for Season of Souls are available now, along with a spooky skin bundle – Grim Repertoire!

Key Features:

  • Meet Your Guardian: A five-story mythical monster, each guardian gathers a team of five heroes, fights at their side, and resurrects them when they fall in battle. Combine a hero's skill with the power of a naga, griffin, or another guardian to dominate the battle.
  • Choose Your Hero: Choose from elusive snipers, powerful spellcasters, and heavy-metal juggernauts. No matter what kind of game you've played before, you'll find something familiar—and something new. As heroes fight, they level up and improve their skills. Players choose how to upgrade, improving their healing skill, developing a new area attack, or immobilizing their enemies.
  • Control Your Battleground: Survival requires teamwork: player powers interlock and supplement each other, providing tactical flexibility. Summon unique creatures with special powers to seize key points and assist your team. Snipe from overlooks, sneak through tunnels, and guard chokepoints.
  • Unleash Your Guardian: Capture points to empower your guardian, sending it on devastating rampages. Rampages destroy the terrain and reshape the battlefield, providing new tactical opportunities and vulnerabilities. Guardians also strike down other guardians, leading the path to victory.
