Lemnis Gate Beta start date cover

The Lemnis Gate beta start date has been announced for PC — you'll soon be able to try out this time-bending game on PC later this month, but PlayStation and Xbox players are going to have to wait.

Lemnis Gate is a game with a rather interesting time travel mechanic. First revealed late last year, players will have 25 seconds to control one of their operatives. After that, the opposing players gets a turn. Players go back and forth, moving their operatives and adding on new actions until one player emerges victorious.

It seems like a simple enough game, but you'll have to be particularly careful with the moves you make — after all, players interfering with one another can change the timeline and, ultimately, the results of the match. We later learned the Lemnis Gate release date window will be sometime in 2021, but you won't have to wait too long to play it — a beta is arriving in just a few short weeks.

What Are the Lemnis Gate Beta Maps and Game Modes?

The Lemnis Gate beta is going to feature a total of four maps: Tectonic Wells, Quarry, Chimera, and Arbor. All seven Operatives will be available to select for the duration of the beta.

As for the game modes, the first is "Retrieve XM." This game mode takes place on Tectonic Wells and Quarry; players are tasked with trying to retrieve as much Exotic Matter (XM) as possible before time runs out.

On the flip side of the coin, the "Domination" game mode is a little more straightforward. This other game mode takes place on Chimera and Arbor and features opposing teams attempting to control as much territory as possible.

How Do I Get a Lemnis Gate Beta Key?

Here's the bad news — the Lemnis Gate beta will be semi-public. There are three ways to get a Lemnis Gate Beta Key according to today's announcement:

  3. Getting a key as a Twitch Drop once the beta is live.

Frontier Foundry promises to detail more ways to get a beta key in the coming days. You're definitely going to want to check it out — beta participants will score some neat exclusive rewards that will be available in the full game when it launches next month.
