Lemnis Gate time-bending 1v1 FPS revealed for early 2021 at Gamescom Opening Night Live

Frontier Developments is launching Lemnis Gate through Frontier Foundry and we got our first look at the 1v1 time-bending FPS we'll be playing on Gamescom Opening Night Live


With Frontier Foundry, Frontier Developments is putting a new emphasis on third-party developers, and Lemnis Gate is going to be one of its first releases. Coming from Ratloop Games Canada, Lemnis Gate is a time-loop blend of first-person shooting and strategy that will have players creating and countering each other’s time loop actions in early 2021 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Frontier Foundry’s Lemnis Gate made its debut during Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live on August 27, 2020. Set in a science fiction backdrop, Lemnis Gate puts players head-to-head in a first-person shooter match in which you will create time loops of actions and attempt to outmaneuver your opponent and their loops. Each loop adds new chaos to the battlefield that can be attacked directly or countered with your own loops. That means that in addition to making sure that your reflexes and aim are on point, you’d best be thinking about how you want to attack the previous loop or arrange your next loop for an advantage in the match. Check out the reveal trailer below.

Lemnis Gate is the second title to be announced for Frontier Development’s new third-party focused Frontier Foundry initiative. Set apart from the usual focus on larger titles like Planet Coaster and Elite Dangerous: Odyssey, Frontier Foundry aims to boost indie developers on its brand. We already saw the full reveal of the first title in Frontier Foundry earlier in the Gamescom Opening Night Live lineup with the launch of grotesque co-op platformer Struggling.

It will be a bit longer before we see Lemnis Gate come out in early 2021, so stay tuned for more details and information as we await an official launch date and more on the game.
