Stormgate is Frost Giant Studios’ highly-anticipated free-to-play real-time strategy game and a spiritual successor to the acclaimed StarCraft and Warcraft RTS games they helped create.
The story of Stormgate takes place in an all-new, ever-evolving science fantasy setting. Players will wage war in a global conflict between humanity and the Infernal Host – demonic alien invaders hellbent on claiming the Earth. A steady cadence of seasonal updates means that the next set of campaign missions is always around the corner.
Frost Giant’s custom-built SnowPlay technology gives Stormgate the crisp, ultra-responsive gameplay that makes it more fun than ever to control the battlefield.

In addition to the story-driven solo or co-op campaign and the completely free-to-play 1v1 mode, Stormgate will include a robust three-player co-op vs. AI mode featuring unique Hero characters; 3v3 team-based competition; and a powerful yet intuitive editor that will empower creators to build maps and mods.
