Infinite Possibilities

Stormgate’s in-game editor is a powerful tool for user-generated content (UGC) creators to build maps, game modes, and more in Unreal Engine 5.

When will Stormgate officially launch?
We’re focused on making a great game first and will wait until we are further into development to share a release date. Closed testing for Stormgate will begin in July 2023.
What will happen during closed testing?
Closed testing is for gathering feedback and improving the game through iteration and testing gameplay modes. We also plan to perform stress tests to ensure proper performance under heavy user loads.
We will start closed testing in July with a small pre-alpha test–the first of multiple external testing phases. Closed beta will be the longest closed testing phase and will extend into 2024.
The earliest phases of closed testing will be focused on core functionality and 1v1 gameplay. We will gradually introduce new content and modes over time, including cooperative play.
When will I get my invite to the closed playtest?
Invites to a small initial group of external playtesters will be sent in July 2023. If you signed up to join the closed beta here on, you are eligible to participate in these early playtests. Additional playtesters will be added in waves over many months, with the largest number of beta sign-ups participating in 2024.
Due to the size of the response we received, we can not guarantee that everyone who signed up will be invited to closed testing.
What platforms will Stormgate be available on?
Stormgate will be available for closed testing exclusively for Windows PC on Steam, with the possibility of distribution on other platforms in the future.
Will closed testing be available in my region?
Stormgate closed testing will be available in all regions currently served by Steam.
Who is building Stormgate?
Stormgate is being developed by Frost Giant Studios. Members of our development team have been privileged to help create some of the most acclaimed and best-selling PC games of all time–including Blizzard Entertainment’s WarCraft® III and StarCraft® II. Now, it’s our turn to carry forward the legacy of epic storytelling, innovative co-op gameplay, and celebrated esports that make RTS great.
