Gigantic's Newest Update "Season of Souls" Now Available
Today Perfect World Entertainment and developer Motiga announced Gigantic’s newest update, Season of Souls, is now available on. 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.
We for one are happy that this game has gotten more support as it had a long and somewhat rocky development, and to see new DLC for it is encouraging.
