We aspire to support offline play for solo campaign at some point, but the team is currently focused on getting our Early Access release into players' hands. Campaign progression and save states depend on our server technologies at this time, but offline campaign support is definitely one of our future goals.


Passion for RTS and love for the genre never went away--other genres simply sprung into existence (including MOBA, which was made using RTS editors) and exploded in popularity as a result of being free-to-play and committing to frequent updates with strong social gaming features. RTS only appeared to have shrunk by comparison to these major releases.

When members of our team were working on StarCraft II, the player base was remarkably stable--in fact, it doubled in size when our team members led the transition to make it free to play.

Awesome!! I got my key and I'm in-game. How would access Turf War? I need an ID for it correct?

You can create a Turf War lobby in custom games. Please note that Frigate is confidential, so no discussing outside of the private playtest channels.

Thank you guys for keeping competitive RTS alive! I'm a Moba player who used to play SC2 and am excited to get back into the genre.

Love to see it! We’re testing out a MOBA-inspired custom game in this playtest, Turf War—you should check it out!

In the same boat as you OP! My dumbass sat on the fence for too long, I had plenty of time to be prepared but I just purchased access today.

Thanks for supporting our game and our studio!


The real 3D faction was the friends we made along the way.

We’re testing 2v2 in Frigate. We’ll be looking at player feedback, but it’s definitely one of our most-requested modes.

So people can not stream thd next beta phase?

Nope--no streaming or screenshots or even discussion. It's confidential. (The exception is that if you're a playtester, you can stream, screenshot, and discuss in the appropriate playtester Discord channels.)


Yes, you can access the beta through May 21.
