Competitive FPS Quantum League is a time-bending game of clones

Competitive FPS Quantum League

Argentinian studio Nimble Giant Entertainment is working on the competitive FPS Quantum League. This game is trying to put its own spin on the shooter genre by adding time-bending mechanics to the matches. This is the kind of futuristic professional sports where rules are thrown out of the window, and as a Quantum Athlete, your goal is simply to teamwork with yourself in order to take out the rivals. Sounds confusing? Well, not to anyone who has ever watched the time-travel movie Primer.

Anyway, Quantum League offers 1v1 and 2v2 modes where you battle in small arenas. The shooting part should be fairly standard, but it's when the time-looping mechanics come into play that the face of the game changes entirely. You have to take into account every move of your rival so that you can time your clones right, seeing the game unfolding before it actually happens. Man, my head hurts.

There are six Quantum League characters so far, with Jackie and Violet being two of the girls. You have six weapons at your disposal to use across nine different arenas and various game modes, including deathmatch and capture point.

The Quantum League release date is yet to be pinned down, but the open beta is coming in a few weeks. Interestingly enough, the game is labeled as free-to-play on Steam, so it won't hurt to give it a shot. The mechanics are definitely worth a look, and if the devs managed to take inspiration from the best for the shooting aspect, it could be a valuable competitive shooter.

Here's hoping that the competitive FPS Quantum League is much more than an FPS with a cool Overwatch-inspired art style and an intriguing time travel gimmick on top. The Steam page is live and the official website is up and running if you want more info.
