Indie developer Nimble Giant Entertainment has announced that their new time-paradox FPS, Quantum League, enters open beta with a date set for later this week. The multiplayer shooter is an online FPS where players battle with a time loop.
Now when someone says go play with yourself, one actually can go play with themself. With the imaginative addition of the time loop, players can tactically team up with their past versions in matches to achieve victory. The innovative shooter features 1v1 and 2v2 matches and is based in an alternate universe where time travel has completely rewritten the rulebook for professional sports.
Each round features all of the players actions from the previous rounds with past versions of them running around. Meaning their so-called clone will run, shoot, and move exactly as they did. In the dynamic and fast paced action, players will need to pay attention to their past selves. If any of their versions takes lethal damage they will become desynced from that timeloop and need to save their clone in the next time loop.
Scoring is done when a team member is alive on the capture point at the end of the third and final time loop. The game is called when a team reached the required number of points for victory.
Player’s interested in participating in the free open beta when it lands on February 21 will need to visit the Quantum League Free Open Beta Steam page and follow the simple directions of wishlisting the game.
