Warframe Dev Announces New Deck Building Game Keystone

Digital Extremes, the studio mostly known for their massively successful free-to-play title Warframe, announced a new title.

The studio didn’t reveal much about the new title other than its name and a brief description of its nature. Keystone is a first-person shooter with deck-building and MOBA-gameplay elements. Keystone is being developed by an internal team inside Digital Extremes. Here is a brief description regarding the game’s setting and concept:

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.

Digital Extremes’ Studio Head Sheldon Carter expressed his excitement towards his studio’s latest titles, and promised to reach the limits of what defines a game as a good first-person shooter.

“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. 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.”

Keystone doesn’t have a set release date yet nor even a release window. We will try our best to keep you updated once it becomes available. At the meantime, feel free to sign-up for the alpha through here.
