It’s called Keystone, and as announced today, it’s a “competitive first-person shooter with a distinct blend of first-person action and deck-building strategies” with an appealing retrofuturist vibe.
“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.”
It appears to be the same game that leaked in 2015 when a gamer literally sneaked into Digital Extremes’ headquarters and wandered around for a day, tricking the Canadian devs into spilling the beans on the “FPS with cards” title.
Closed alpha signups for the game’s first test event this weekend are ongoing on the official site.
