'Golem Gates' Early Access Update Adds First Story Campaign Episode - Screens

Golem Gates blends elements of real-time strategy, multiplayer online battle arena, and card battle.

Powered by the Unreal Engine 4 and combined with the creative art of Marvel and Transformer franchise alumni, Josh Nizzi, Golem Gates is sure to deliver hours of intense combat and joy for fans of RTS and Card Battle genres in a single one-time purchase. A changeup from traditional RTS games, Golem Gates allows players more versatility by allowing them to use their Glyphs anywhere they have map vision created by their existing forces.

In Golem Gates, players will collect spell cards (called Glyphs) and strategically weave them into a deck as they prepare for battle. Battles are fast-paced and highly tactical with streamlined resource management to keep players focused on the action.

Laser Guided Games and Hollow Earth released the first major story content update for their dark fantasy strategy game Golem Gates. Players of the real-time strategy (RTS) and collectible card game (CCG) hybrid title can experience Golem Gates’ lore-rich world through Book I of the episodic single-player story campaign, available today as a free update through Steam.

It all begins with a mysterious voice, reaching from the unknown — calling from the darkness to summon you, The Harbinger. An outcast in this forsaken world, The Harbinger is given purpose: find the monolithic Golem Gates which aid the enemy, and destroy them to be redeemed. Book I of Golem Gate’s single-player story campaign teaches the player to wield the power of The Harbinger to manipulate and command nanites from The Ash — an ancient power that resides in the world’s atmosphere. Follow the unseen force that compels you to take up arms in five story missions that put you on the course to unraveling the mysteries surrounding the golem’s long-lost creators. But beware, there are others with power over The Ash.

“We’re thrilled to introduce players to the The Harbinger, the protagonist of the game, and the Golem Gates themselves, the ominous giant structures that protect the enemy,” said Josh Nizzi, Head of Hollow Earth Inc. “We can’t wait for players to dive deeper into the dark and dangerous world of Golem Gates— stay tuned for even more twists and revelations ahead!”

“With the introduction of the Golem Gates single-player campaign, players can now further immerse themselves in its arcane setting,” said Matt Oelfke, Founder and Lead Developer at Laser Guided Games. “Our Early Access players enjoying Golem Gates’ multiplayer side couldn’t get enough of the world we created, so we’ve expanded our scope to deliver even more single-player content than originally planned. Book I is just the beginning, and we can’t wait to hear what fans think!”

Golem Gates is now available on Steam Early Access for $19.99 (USD) or regional equivalent.

The brainchild of four individuals from two companies with experience developing such triple A titles as Gears of War, Civilization, Unreal Tournament and Red Faction combined with the power of Unreal Engine 4, Golem Gates is sure to deliver hours of intense combat and joy to fans of RTS, MOBA, or card battle genres.


  • Collect cards (Glyphs) by completing matches to create decks to suit your combat style - Create defensive structures, offensive squads, elusive traps and powerful spell attacks.
