Stormgate Pre-order and Early Access Guide

Let's all hope the kings and queens of RTS games delivers!

From the developers that brought you the Starcraft and Warcraft franchises, Stormgate aims to bring the RTS genre back to the mainstream by making the game free-to-play. However, Stormgate does offer different early access packs that might confuse potential players. Here’s everything you need to know about all the early access packs and pre-ordering Stormgate.

Is Stormgate Free-To-Play?

Stormgate is a free-to-play game, but players can only access its casual and competitive PvP modes. The game would love to bring back all the players it can to its competitive mode and has huge esports plans for the game.

The early access packs being sold are for those who want to get a little more out of the game. RTS games like Starcraft and Warcraft are known for their story-driven campaigns, and these features won’t be available for free-to-play players.

What Do You Get From Stormgate’s Early Access Packs?

Currently, Stormgate is only available on Steam, and it will follow regional pricing. Some countries may have cheaper or more expensive prices.

Early Access Pack – $25

  • Amara – Vanguard Hero
  • Vanguard Campaign: Chapter 1 – includes three story campaign missions
  • Cosmetic rewards from the Vanguard Chapter 1 Campaign
  • Gold Vanguard Army Accent cosmetic

Deluxe Early Access Pack – $40

  • Everything from the first Early Access Pack
  • Maloc – Infernal Hero
  • Auralanna – Celestial Hero
  • Chicken Supporter Pet

Ultimate Early Access Pack – $60

  • Everything from the Early Access and Deluxe Early Access Packs
  • Vanguard Campaign: Chapter 2 & 3 Missions – includes three story campaign missions for each chapter
  • Firestorm Fog of War Shader

Vanguard Campaign Chapters 2 and 3 will not be available at the early access launch, but they have said that they will be in the following months.

Based on all the bonuses, it makes sense to purchase either the Early Access Pack or the Ultimate Access Pack, as these bundles include more campaign missions.

Heroes and Chapters do cost $10 each, so if you plan on supporting the game, getting the heroes also makes sense to save some extra dollars.

It is also worth noting that the game will be released on August 13, 2024, but pre-purchasing the Early Access packs will give players access to the game as early as July 30, 2024.

Stormgate initially started on Kickstarter, so early supporters or pledgers will already have the game, depending on their pledge.
