A new post on the gigantic subreddit has revealed that the creators will once again be opening up the servers to allow people to play the game for a limited time.
Despite the image on Reddit only revealing the time and place of the invite, Insider Gaming has been given the full email, which reveals the event will have some new content.
In addition and despite the event being a supposed ‘throwback’, invited players will have to sign a Closed Gigantic Playtest Agreement, which outlines players can’t; stream the game, screengrab the game, record the game, or discuss it outside of private channels.
The email reads:
