Real-time strategy fans, rejoice. Although the genre hasn’t exactly been in shape for some time, it seems to be making efforts at recovery. Part of that is thanks to Frost Giant Studios, a development team comprising of former Blizzard veterans who recently took a stage at Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live to unveil their debut project, Stormgate.
Stormgate’s cinematic trailer very clearly shows the StarCraft vibes, from the space-faring science-fantasy setting to the visual aesthetic and more. The trailer reveals two of the several playable factions in the game- the Human Resistance, and the demon-like Infernal Horde.
Stormgate will be a full-fledged campaign that can also include 1v1 multiplayer. Interestingly, it has also been confirmed that the game is going to be free-to-play- although the developer hasn’t got any pay-to-win monetizations or NFTs, so you can breathe easy on that front.
Stormgate is in development for PC, and a beta is coming next year.
