Lemnis Gate

Fatloop Games and Frontier Foundry's turn-based strategic shooter Lemnis Gate has launched for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One -- and if you're wondering how a shooter can be turn-based, you're not alone. We'll let the devs explain it themselves:

The rules are simple: players pick an Operative and make their move. This might be killing an enemy, protecting a teammate, or destroying an objective. The catch is that each match takes place within a 25 second time loop, so with each progressive round players will have to keep one step ahead of not only their own moves, past and present, but also those of their opponent as they battle to outsmart the opposition over five mind-bending rounds.

I've read that three times, and I still can't wrap my brain around it.

It sounds cool, though, and you have to give Fatloop Games credit for trying to add an interesting twist to what could otherwise be just another shooter. If they're lucky, Lemnis Gate will explode like Splitgate has. Then again, they could have picked a better day to launch than when the biggest MMORPG in at least half a decade did the same, even if it is suffering from typical launch-day issues.

Lemnis Gate is available on all platforms for $19.99 and is also available for Game Pass for Xbox and PC. Learn more about the game on its website.
