Canadian developer Digital Extremes, the studio behind the cooperative online hit Warframe, has announced Keystone, a competitive first-person shooter with a distinct blend of first-person action and deck-building strategies.
With the look and feel of the 1970's retro-pulp era, Keystone will take players on a journey through a multi-verse that begins on the starting square of an intriguing, mystical board game. Players will wield unique decks of cards throughout the match that offer handy benefits, amazing powers, and fearsome weapons. With timing and resourcefulness, personally customized decks give players the upper hand in battle both individually and when strategically coupled with teammates' decks. To find out more and to participate alongside the developers in building the concept of Keystone, sign up for the Closed Alpha, with the first Closed Alpha session beginning today and ending Monday, May 26-29.
The long-running success of Warframe has enabled us to build up a second internal team to create a wholly different but equally satisfying game concept that we're really excited about. Keystone originates from our roots in the FPS world and mixing genres like we have done with Warframe. We believe there's room to expand the confines of what defines a good FPS and hope our community will see the potential and get on board for the ride.
Keystone has announced only for PC at the moment.
