During The Game Awards, Frost Giant Studios released a new story and gameplay trailer for the upcoming RTS Stormgate announcing the involvement of Shang Chi actor Simu Liu who voices the character Warz, leader of the infernal Host. The game will include a multiplayer mode, custom games, and a “living campaign” which will continue to receive content over time. Stormgate will launch in early access sometime in Summer 2024.
Simu Liu commented on the announcement in a press release:
“When we heard that Stormgate was happening and that it was from so many of the same people who made the games that I loved growing up (and worshiped in a lot of ways), I got excited and wanted to see if I could be involved. What’s most exciting about Stormgate is that it was made by people who love RTS. This is a game that, in its DNA, is every bit the games that I loved growing up. I feel like it doesn’t get more authentic than that.”
The game’s details via the developer:
