For anyone not familiar with the game developing studio Digital Extremes, they are behind the popular free-to-play sci-fi shooter Warframe. Today, in a statement on their official website, the developers told fans that they are working on another project called Keystone.

Keystone will be a free-to-play “competitive first-person shooter with a distinct blend of first-person action and deck-building strategies.” According to the statement, the success of Warframe has allowed Digital Extremes to create a secondary core development team which will work internally to create this new title. For Warframe fans, that means the game won’t be left in the dust. Sheldon Carter, Digital Extremes studio head, had this to say:

 “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 artWarframe is widely enjoyed by its community and Digital Extremes has always been very involved with its fans. The developers and team members host multiple live streams on their Twitch channel. Earlier this week, they even announced a cosplay contest to get fans excited for their upcoming event, the TennoCon. This bodes well for Keystone as Warframe is known as a solid free-to-play title with excellent developers.

Invitations to the Keystone alpha will be sent out this Thursday in order to prepare players for the first session which will begin the follow day on Friday, May 26th and end on Monday, May 29th. If you are interested in getting “on board for the ride”, make sure you visit Keystone’s official website to sign up for the alpha.

    Wow, so I got to try this game, and it is not what I expected! I saw people comparing it to Paladins, but it has a totally different feel. It feels most similar to Unreal Tournament combined with a pinch of Paladins. You do select from different hero classes, and there are objectives in each match, but each match is uninterrupted. You go straight from one objective to the next rather than the round-based style of Paladins. The main feature of the game that makes it somewhat unique is the deck building tho. You get a deck of 12 cards which can be either weapon cards or power ups. You will get them in the same order they are in your deck, so giving a good weapon card before an infinite ammo card could be good, so long as you don’t die during the cooldown between card draws. Overall, it fels super fun right now, but it is also extremely buggy as it is still in alpha.
