Time-paradox arena shooter Quantum League has entered open beta on Steam. For a limited time, players can test out the game’s unique time-looping mechanic in intense 1v1 and 2v2 multiplayer matches.
Developed by independent studio Nimble Giant Entertainment, Quantum League takes the concept of time looping and applies it to a competitive arena shooter setting. Set in an alternate universe where time travel has been incorporated into esports, the game offers a twist on the standard arena shooter formula. Quantum League is an original I.P. from Nimble Giant and is the studio’s first major game release since 2016’s Master of Orion.
Quantum League Open Beta
In Quantum League, players compete in 1v1 and 2v2 matches that consist of multiple phases. Each player is caught in a time loop, resulting in a series of clones that mimic the player’s actions.
At the start of each attack phase, players can move across the arena as they wish. The player’s actions and movements are then reenacted by a clone during the next round. By the end of the match, players will have a team of self-made clones strategically moving about the arena. Agility, speed, and careful planning will lead you and your clone crew to victory.
Quantum League is a difficult game to describe. It’s a game that needs to be played firsthand in order to really appreciate what’s going on. Luckily, Nimble Giant is giving players a chance to do just that. Those interested in trying out this innovative shooter can do so during the free-to-play open beta on Steam, which runs until March 2. “It’s a great opportunity for players to test their skill and experiment with the time loop mechanic,” said Quantum League Lead Designer, Balthazar Auger. The open beta features multiple game modes as well, including Capture the Point and Death Match.
