From Gigantic Wiki
(Redirected from Hero)

Heroes are playable characters in Gigantic, and an essential part of its gameplay.


Heroes have unique abilities and various attributes. Over the course of the match they gain experience from getting kills and completing objectives. This experience is used to level up (to the maximum level of 10), and with each new level heroes can choose upgrades of their abilities and pick a passive bonus. Each hero has a special, powerful ability called focus.

Heroes are grouped by flavor archetypes and by gameplay roles, however they don't always have to fulfill exactly the same roles they were assigned to. They also vary in amount of health, armor, movement speed and by how well they perform in the match in some of their aspects – offense, defense, mobility and utility.

Heroes are split into two teams of five, where each player takes control of one hero. The team should help its guardian to achieve the goal of the match – defeat the enemy guardian. On top of that, heroes are able to summon creatures to help them on the Power Race, a part of the match when guardians prepare for their attacks.
