Recently, we’ve seen some announcements of multiplayer games shutting down servers in the near future. It’s unfortunate, but fun titles like Rumbleverse and Knockout City are only sticking around for a while. The latest online multiplayer game going the same way is Lemnis Gate.
The PS5 and PS4 first-person shooter was released in September 2021, meaning it will be online for less than two years. It has a neat concept: two players take turns completing typical multiplayer shooter actions within a short period of time. As the match progresses, the actions of all the characters play out within the same time loop, opening up all kinds of possibilities. You can counter them by gunning your opponent’s mobs for the objective, but on their next turn, they might drop a grenade to counter your counter. It’s an inventive idea, but sadly, he won’t be around.
“From April 11, 2023, Lemnis Gate will be removed from sale on all platforms,” reads a Statement on steam. “However, we will keep the multiplayer servers online so you can all continue to enter the loop until July 11, 2023, at which time they will shut down.” If you own the game on console, you’ll be able to play local multiplayer and training modes after that cut-off date.
So, it’s not going away immediately; You can buy the game until April 11th, and play it online until July 11th. After this the online services will be stopped.
