Back in May, Warframe developer Digital Extremes announced a new first-person shooter and deck-building hybrid title called Keystone.
Yesterday, in an official statement from the studio, Keystone has been officially renamed to The Amazing Eternals. The developer didn’t give an explanation as to why the name change, but they provided the following statement, revealing an upcoming closed alpha test is planned and a Founder’s Program.
The Amazing Eternals is a competitive first-person shooter with a distinct blend of first-person action, deck-building strategies, and 1970s retro-pulp visuals. The Amazing Eternals will take players on a journey through a multiverse that begins on the starting square of a mystical board game. Players will wield unique decks of cards throughout the match offering 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.
Following a fruitful, feedback-filled Closed Alpha test over the summer, The Amazing Eternals is now ready for a larger-bodied stress test moving into the Closed Beta phase. Closed Beta keys will be distributed through various key websites over the course of weeks starting Friday, September 1. However, for those interested in instant access to the Closed Beta, The Amazing Eternals Founders Program will offer new and existing players an opportunity to support the continued development and growth of the game starting August 29. Along with instant access, exclusive gear and items offered only in the Founders Program will be included in a range of Founders packs with full details to be revealed on launch day.
The Amazing Eternals doesn’t have a set release date yet, but is expected to make its world premier in September at PAX West.
