I feel like I’ve been using the phrase “time shenanigans” a lot lately. I guess there’s just something inherently fascinating about baby’s first quantum mechanics, especially since our somewhat loose understanding of it allows us to cook up wacky new time-centric ideas. One such idea is the upcoming Lemnis Gate, a strategic turn-based FPS where one player controls a squad of combatants by simultaneously manipulating their past, present, and future. The only way such a game could be any more far out is if you had multiple consoles to contend with in addition to multiple timelines. So, is Lemnis Gate crossplay?
Is Lemnis Gate Crossplay?
At the time of writing, the Ratloop Games Canada team has nothing to announce regarding crossplay in Lemnis Gate, but they will be sharing more information about it as we get closer to launch. While there is no definitive confirmation of crossplay functionality, the odds of Lemnis Gate having it upon release seem quite good.
Several months ago, in an interview with DualShockers, the developers at Ratloop Games Canada noted that crossplay functionality was something they were researching and hoping to implement at launch. Judging by the “Cross-Platform Multiplayer” feature listed on the game’s Steam page, it’s a fair assumption that they were able to make that happen.
Since the game has such a strong focus on online multiplayer, and every match is only one-on-one or two-on-two, it stands to reason that the devs would want to diversify their playerbase as much as possible and keep things connected across all of its platforms.
Speaking of which, Lemnis Gate is slated to release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam and the Microsoft Store. It’ll also be available as part of Xbox Game Pass at launch, though it isn’t yet known if that’s only the console Game Pass or both the console and PC Game Pass (though they’d probably be able to do the latter fairly easily). You can follow the official Lemnis Gate website and Discord for more news and updates.
