Industry veteran James Phinney, who has worked on titles like Starcraft, Guild Wars and State of Decay, has today revealed Gigantic, a new free-to-play action-MOBA by Seattle-based studio Motiga.

Unlike the typical MOBA styling of top-down, five versus five combat seen in Dota 2 and League of Legends, Gigantic will instead be opting for a more unique twist in the form of a behind-the-shoulder third-person perspective. Players will be charged with heading into fights alongside their colossal guardian with the goal being to slay the other team's gigantic AI beast.

"From the very beginning, our goal was not just to make an awesome free-to-play online game. We wanted to make the best online game, period," said Motiga co-founder Chris Chung, who was the former CEO of NCsoft's North American and European operations and chief strategy officer at Trion Worlds.

You can check out the trailer below, which shows that Gigantic is definitely a pretty game, but given the MOBA atmosphere of today it will be a hard one to sell. Players interested in the Gigantic alpha can sign up here.
