A brand-new take on multiplayer first-person shooters will be coming soon in the form of Quantum League, a first-person shooter that experiments with time loops and paradoxes to put its own unique twists on the shooter genre. This game comes from developer and publisher Nimble Giant (Drone Strike Force, Bunch of Heroes). An announcement on Twitter confirmed that Quantum League will launch on May 26 via Steam Early Access.

Quantum League, which was originally announced in July of last year, is a multiplayer first-person shooter that is set in an alternate universe where the face of professional sports has been drastically changed: the titular league, which is a heavily weaponized, team-based shooting sport, is taking the world by storm. Quantum League takes place in specially designed arenas that feature a time loop which rewinds and revives you. That’s where the team-based aspect of the game comes in. Its primary game mode is 1v1, but it allows you to team with your past and future selves, letting you either set yourself up for success or failure. Considering where your past self was and where you want your future self to be is paramount to achieve success in Quantum League.

Quantum League also includes a 2v2 multiplayer mode which requires double the planning and hindsight plus multiple game modes apart from your usual deathmatches. The game also includes a capture point mode, six playable arenas, six weapons and characters to choose from, and a Casual and Ranked mode. Nimble Giant also guaranteed more content as it moves from the public beta test towards early access until version 1.0, which they foresee will take around six months.

2020 seems to be the year of first-person shooters, what with the emergence Call of Duty: Warzone, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the continued success of Apex Legends and Rainbow Six: Siege. Newcomers like Valorant and Amazon Games Studios’ upcoming Crucible are also entering the arena.

Quantum League is now available to be wishlisted on PC via Steam. Early Access starts on May 26. Currently, console versions are confirmed for later in 2020.
