Keystone Is A New FPS with Deck Building Elements by Digital Extremes
Digital Extremes (Warframe) just announced Keystone, a new competitive first-person shooter game with a blend of action and deck building elements. Sheldon Carter, Studio Head at Digital Extremes, released the following statement:
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 will have the “look and feel” of the 1970’s retro-pulp era. Players will be taken on a journey 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 can give players the upper hand in battle both individually and when strategically coupled with teammates’ decks.
If you’re interested in trying Keystone, Digital Extremes announced that you can already sign up on the official website for the first Closed Alpha session due to take place between May 26 and May 29. Needless to say, we’ll keep an eye on this game.
