Fault: Elder Orb EGS

Fault: Elder Orb, an early access third-person MOBA with class-focused heroes and gear building by Strange Matter Studios, is making its way to the Epic Games Store after launching earlier on Steam. Starting on July 18 for both PC game libraries, Fault: Elder Orb will become free-to-play to open its doors to new fans.

Interested players downloading the game from the Epic Games Store will also gain the hero skin Epic Astro Gideon for free. The recent developer stream announced the big news and revealed plenty of significant changes that are coming to the game. From new maps to necessary player-friendly features, there's a list of things in the works that Strange Matter Studios will explain during their anniversary stream on July 17 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

In the comments section of the Fault: Elder Orb Free-To-Play Launch Trailer (below), fans were pleased and ecstatic about the announcement. The gameplay is reminiscent of Epic Games' shuttered Paragon game, and it should be since Fault is using the assets from that title.

After Epic closed the game down in 2018 and refunded players, they made around $17m worth of Paragon assets available for Unreal Engine 4 creators. It was a great boon for Fault: Elder Orb, helping Strange Matter Studios get off the ground quicker. Still, it's in an early stage and needs a player base that'll stand firmly behind it.
