Stormgate is a compelling blend of fantasy and sci-fi, unfolding in a post-apocalyptic setting set in the near future. The game thrusts players into the midst of an apocalyptic event triggered by an alien race of infernal demonic invaders. These invaders have swept through various worlds, decimating civilizations and subjecting humanity to their rule.

In the wake of this chaos, diverse factions begin to form, with survivors, militias, and marauders carving out their niche in the post-apocalyptic landscape. What sets Stormgate apart is its infusion of hard sci-fi elements, introducing battle mechs, spaceships, and cybernetics into the series.

Aside from having former Starcaft 2 and Warcraft 3 team members, Frost Giant Studios also has staff who’ve worked on legendary gaming franchises like Diablo 2, Command and Conquer, and Wasteland 3.
