Lemnis Gate has a strange appearance. It's a time-lapse FPS turn-based strategy, a counterintuitive genre mashup if there has been one, but it also seems to work somehow. as if it takes enough of each (genre) to create a unique but fast-paced experience, where there is always room for improvement. "
Still, it can be a little tricky to imagine the concept, which is where the new developer diary comes into play. It provides a summary of Lemnis Gate's four different modes: Recover XM, Domination, Deathmatch, and Seek and Destroy, and shows short gameplay clips of each, and also supports online and offline gaming.
The great revelation, however, is the date of the promised beta test. Ratloop Games said during the PC Gaming Show in June that a beta version would be released in July, and that it has now closed from July 22-26. The beta test will include seven characters, each with unique weapons and abilities, two game modes (Retrieve XM and Domination) and four maps, all playable in five different game types.
- 1v1 Turn-Based: Each player takes turns playing the operations in the time loop
- 2v2 Turn-based: Each player takes turns playing the operatives in time loops one by one in teams of 2
- 2v2 teammates play together: both players act on one team at the same time, and then the other team can do the same in turn.
- 1v1 Turn-based room: each player takes turns playing the operations in the time loop, taking turns with a single control method (either by changing seats or by passing the controller back and forth)
- Local based on 2v2 turns: play with friends at home changing seats or passing the controller between all four
The beta version will be accessible via Steam using exchange keys available through Lemnis Gate Twitter feed i Discord server as well as Twitch Drops after the beta release. Ratloop said other ways to get keys will be revealed soon and promised that "anyone who wants to join will be able to do so."
The head of the community, Jens Erik Vaaler, received some advice to start the action. “My main advice for people playing in the beta is to always stay one step ahead of what they are planning (enemies),” he said. "It's very important to think in four dimensions and use time mechanics as a central part of your strategy."
Lemnis Gate will premiere on August 3 on Steam and consoles and will be included on Game Day on the first day. You can learn more about what it is all about lemnisgategame.com.
