Frontier Foundry today announced that the studio’s upcoming turn-based, strategic shooter Lemnis Gate is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X in summer 2021.
Lemnis Gate comes from Montreal-based Ratloop Games Canada. They describe it as a “4D” first-person shooter with both offline and online matches. Here’s how they describe the game:
Players disrupt the past to change the future. The rules are simple: defeat opponents across five, 25-second rounds. The twist is they’re the same 25 seconds; repeated. Within them, players take turns to execute an action, whether blasting enemies, capturing targets, or stealing objectives. After all turns have been taken the next round begins.
This ingenious time loop mechanic lets players progressively build strategies, whether online or local, in both 1v1 and 2v2 matches. As more operatives enter the fray, the potential for creative cunning rises. There are seven operatives in total, each bringing a distinct primary weapon and special ability. Since every operative is available right from the start, players can start strategizing straight away. This subversive and skillful 4D FPS rewards non-linear logic and abstract thinking, challenging players to both plan ahead and change the past as they build up to victory.
