Wormhole Wars is a fast-paced sci-fi multiplayer shooter that combines the strategic elements of portals with the explosive gameplay of a first person shooter. Built in Unreal Engine 4 and powered through Steam, you can play with friends online or versus the AI.
It supports up to 10 players and is revolutionizing the FPS genre with the unique movement and flanking abilities that players can pull off through portals.
Enter the Pantheon, the ancient temple where the first Wormhole technology was created by the original Sovereign of the Lorentzians, Caecilius. Caecilius was the first to solve the Einstein field equations and develop the technology to link separate points in space-time via Wormholes shot onto Traversable Surfaces. Upon this development, he installed Traversable Surfaces throughout his kingdom in order to better protect against invaders from other realms.
After invaders overthrew Pantheon, survivors fled to the underground missile base, Silo, bringing the Wormhole technology with them. There the Lorentizans built Rosen bridges across the base in order to attempt to rebuild their society. Lorentzians took Caecilius’s original Wormhole technology and added cosmic inflation to be able to traverse Wormholes within the base seamlessly
While underground, a gravitational collapse of a sufficiently compact mass caused an instability in Silo that expelled the Lorentzians into the sky, where they landed on the cloud city of Olympus. There they found themselves in a city ruled by King Casimir, where they were forced into servitude. Ultimately, the strongest Lorentzians became gladiators for the spectator sport known as Wormhole Wars.
Casimir charged his nephew Hermann to expand the Wormhole Wars’ arenas, building a space base known as Outpost for the sole purpose of the sport. Eventually this sport expanded to include not just Lorentzians, but drew the strongest and bravest troopers from other realms in the universe, who voluntarily competed for victory. During this time, Hermann was fixated on the idea of not only using Wormholes to travel within realm, but to expand the technology to enable travel from one realm to another.
Exciting Firefights Using Portal Combat
Use portals to outsmart and outplay your opponents. Flank them from behind. Use momentum to fly through the air to new locations. Or quickly flee from a disadventageous position.
Easy to Learn | Difficult to Master
Standard FPS controls and intuitive portal mechanics mean beginners are up and running right off the bat. However, players must constantly evolve strategies and their ability to think with portals in order to outsmart one another. The skill cap is unlimited.
Competitive Ranking | Dedicated Servers
True competitors deserve a fair, unbiased competitive ranking system with no host advantage. Wormhole Wars returns to the classic and intuitive 1 - 50 ranking system based purely on wins and losses. It also features a worldwide leaderboard so competitors can compete for the top spot and get the recognition they deserve.
Hone Your Skills Against Smart AI
For less competitive players or for those just looking to improve their portal mechanics in a more forgiving environment, practice against intelligent bots of varying difficulties. Once you've mastered the bots you'll be ready for the online community.

Ian first conceived of the idea to combine a first-person shooter with portals during his undergraduate time at Stanford University, where he received a BS and MS in computer science, with an emphasis on Graphics and Human-Computer Interaction. He prototyped what is now Wormhole Wars as his senior project under faculty advisor, Professor Ron Fedkiw. Ian’s passion for gaming started when he was 7 years old with his first gaming system, the Nintendo 64. One of his claims to fame is his achievement of being ranked in the top 500 Halo 5 players in the world.

Nicholas is a Computer Science graduate from Stanford University. He met Ian in their dorm 1047, where they played a lot of Halo and Rocket League. Upon hearing the idea of the game, he was thrilled to start working on it. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Nicholas grew up playing video games on the Nintendo 64 and XBOX. He enjoys playing basketball and volleyball and is a huge Los Angeles Lakers fan. When he is not playing Wormhole Wars, you can catch Nicholas playing Rocket League. Feel free to challenge him to a 1v1!
