The new time-paradox FPS, Quantum League, from indie developer Nimble Giant Entertainment, entered a free to play open beta today. In this multiplayer online FPS, players battle with a time loop featuring their past self.
With the time loop feature, players will engage in 1v1 and 2v2 matches that allows the player to team up with past versions of themselves. The world of Quantum League takes place within an alternate universe where time travel has changed everything including professional sports. Players take on the role of a quantum athlete that competes on heavily weaponized teams in specially designed arenas.
Each bout features three time loop rounds. In each pass through the time loop all of the players previous actions including movement and shooting take place. Opponents can target a past version of the player and do lethal damage to that version of the player. This causes the player to desync from their timeline and need to take action in the next loop to save their past self.
Scoring is done in the third round when a team member is alive on the capture point at the rounds conclusion. Victory is achieved when a team reaches the required number of points.
