Stormgate is an RTS by veteran StarCraft developers

This free-to-play RTS game looks to go toe-to-toe with some of the titans in the genre.


Real-time strategy games are difficult to come by these days, with two titans dominating player’s minds since their release: Warcraft and StarCraft. Now, players can experience a title from some veteran developers of those two titles with Stormgate. This free-to-play RTS was revealed at Summer Game Fest 2022. Check out the trailer below.

This cinematic trailer gives players an insight into the type of world on offer in Stormgate. It appears to be a universe where humanity has advanced to using mechs in battle while fighting demon-like entities. These demons are actually aliens that have invaded using the titular Stormgates. As one might expect of an RTS, players will be able to enter the hoofed feet of the alien force as they pick a side.

According to the Steam store page, Stormgate looks to revolutionize the RTS genre with its free-to-play price point, co-operative campaign, and editor for users to build their own experiences. The game touts a casual and competitive player focus, stating that the skill floor has been lowered (allowing more players in) while ensuring the skill ceiling stays high (for those gifted with a high APM).

Stormgate was revealed at Summer Game Fest 2022 and, although it doesn’t have a release date, players can look forward to a beta coming out in 2023. Stay tuned to Shacknews for more news from this week of video game events, and even next we as we kick off Shacknews E6 2022.
