Digital Extremes, the studio known for the hugely popular free to play title Warframe have announced a new first person shooter named Keystones. While details of the game are scarce the little information released by the developer does evoke intrigue with them describing it as a “competitive first-person shooter with a distinct blend of first-person action and deck-building strategies.” You can sign up for beta access here.
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 customised decks give players the upper hand in battle both individually and when strategically coupled with teammates’ decks.
“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,” said Sheldon Carter, studio head at Digital Extremes. “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.”
