'Lemnis Gate' (AL) Also Comes To PS5 And Xbox Series X|S, Scheduled For This Summer - Screens & Trailer

Lemnis Gate is a brain bending, turn-based, strategy shooter tasking players with defeating opponents in 1v1 and 2v2 arena matches.

Players have 25 seconds to execute an action, be it blasting an enemy, maneuvering an operative, or setting up their next move. After all players have taken turns, the next 25-second round begins.

There are five rounds in total, giving rise to a near endless variety of incredible and creative plays. Set up ambushes, fix past mistakes, and develop unbeatable game plans to out-think and outwit adversaries. By using non-linear logic, abstract thinking, and outlandish maneuvers, no two battles are ever the same. Past, present, and future collide.

Not only does Lemnis Gate’s mind-melting time loop mechanic breathe new life into the first-person-shooter genre, it also changes the very concept of teamwork through an innovative feature called ‘auto co-op’. This gives one player control of five deep space operatives, effectively enabling two players to duke it out in bustling, ten-character matches. Auto co-op shines in couch-based multiplayer, redefining both collaboration and competition as pad-passing players’ face-off with friends or work together by taking the hot-seat.

There are countless possibilities and endless outcomes. This turn-based strategy shooter subverts one of the world’s most popular genres, challenging players to throw out the rule book as they exploit time itself in this ultimate cognitive test.

In Lemnis Gate, mental and physical warfare merge. Execute audacious strategies, master your hero’s abilities, and think several moves ahead to achieve a victory that reverberates across time itself. 


This time loop mechanic lets players progressively build strategies, whether online or local, in both 1v1 and 2v2 matches. As more operatives enter the fray, the potential for creative cunning rises. There are seven operatives in total, each bringing a distinct primary weapon and special ability. Since every operative is available right from the start, players can start strategizing straight away. This subversive and skilful 4D FPS rewards non-linear logic and abstract thinking, challenging players to both plan ahead and change the past as they build up to victory.

Strategy is just as important as skill in Lemnis Gate. With the freedom to devise unique game plans, and countless ways to execute them, no two matches are ever the same. Players will need careful observation and forward thinking to master this original experience designed to be played time and time again.

Key Features:

  • THINK DIFFERENTLY: Matches in Lemnis Gate take place within time loops. You have 25 seconds to execute your action, be it blasting an enemy, manoeuvring your operative, or setting up your next move. After all players have taken turns, the next 25-second round begins. Now you’ll face what has happened while setting up what will happen. Each of the five rounds is your chance to alter the timeline as past, present, and future converge.
  • STRATEGIC COMBAT IN THE FOURTH DIMENSION: Victory doesn’t rely on shooting supremacy. You’ll have to use skill and strategy to create unstoppable game plans and get the drop on opponents. It’s all about non-linear logic, abstract thinking, and outlandish manoeuvres. Execute audacious acts and think several moves ahead to get the win.
  • A TIME-BENDING TACTICAL SHOOTER: With a varied cast of characters to choose from, how you play is up to you. Lay damaging toxic waste in your enemy’s path, slow time to land the perfect shot, or deploy protective orbs to assist your future self. Every operative possesses a distinctive loadout and special ability that proves decisive on the battlefield.
  • TEAM UP WITH YOURSELF: Welcome to the team comprised entirely of one: you. With Lemnis Gate’s innovative auto co-op feature, you command every member of your side. Auto co-op gives you total control of five deep-space operatives, effectively enabling two competitors to duke it out in bustling ten-character matches. Become a literal one-person army.
  • COUNTLESS POSSIBILITIES, ENDLESS OUTCOMES: From the first second to the last, anything can happen in Lemnis Gate. Each round is a fresh chance to implement an unbeatable new strategy – or earn redemption from an earlier error. Predict hostiles’ routes, infiltrate enemy lines, and develop multi-layered gameplans by co-operating with yourself. Experiment both in and outside time, and get creative with causality.

Lemnis Gate is coming to PC (Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Seriers X|S in summer 2021.
