Lemnis Gate is a very original shooter that combines the frenzied development of shootouts with turn-based strategy, since we can manipulate time, in 25-second rounds that are repeated, and thus correct past mistakes or add traps to the future.
Lemnis Gate is a game developed by the Canadian studio Ratloop Games and published by the recently launched Frontier Foundry label who also distributes Struggling. It is a unique title, which is ready to revolutionize multiplayer FPS as we know it. What he proposes are we face online 1v1 and 2v2 that take place in space. But with a particularity; these spatial operators have the ability to manipulate time.
After more than two years of work, Lemnis Gate offers an unusual pace of play. It’s about repeating the same 25-second round over and over again, which takes place in a time loop.
Every time we start a new round it overlaps on what has happened in the previous one and allows us to change what has happened. we can avoid the mistakes of the past or set traps for our enemies in the future.
Its own developers describe it as a strategic game, combining tactics and the need to anticipate chess with the fast confrontations of an FPS. To get our team to be victorious, we must guess how our opponent is going to move and cancel their strategy.
At the moment, the Lemnis Gate trailer for PS4, Xbox One, and PC reveals 4 types of operators: commander, sniper, assistant, and chemist. The first of them is intended for fighting and has an assault rifle and grenades, the shooter has a devastating precision rifle at long distances, the assistant has a very precise laser and an orb of protection with which to cover his allied and the chemist is capable of teleporting short distances, T possesses a FOX cannon.
The goal is to combine the skills of all of them. For example, if in the first round they have eliminated our commander, in the second we can anticipate teleporting with the chemical-to prevent him from falling taking into account that the opponent will also try to anticipate our play. The further the rounds go, in the same loop more operators will be involved and development becomes more complicated.
The Lemnis Gate release date is set for 2021 on current PC and consoles it has not been mentioned if the game will also arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
