Gearbox Software, developer of the Borderlands series, has unveiled a new game with the codename Project 1v1 and is inviting players to participate in a closed technical test this summer.
Project 1v1 Information
Project 1v1 is the code name for a top-secret, in-development, competitive first person shooter. According to Gearbox, “Project 1v1 combines the action of fast-paced 1v1 first person combat with the metagame strategy of a collectible card game.” Sounds like an interesting matchup. Gearbox is of course no stranger to genre mashups with their most recent release Battleborn a fusion between first person shooter and a MOBA.
This summer, Gearbox is holding a closed technical test on PC to test the online infrastructure and solicit feedback from players to inform and influence future development. If you are interested in taking part in this test you can do so by registering on their website.
The closed technical test will feature 3 game modes:
- Ranked: Get matched with an opponent based on player rating. Win ranked matches to earn experience and crates containing new cards.
- Challenge: Challenge a friend to an unranked match.
- Arena: Queue up to challenge the current Arena champion – and win to take their place.
There are no platforms, release date or any other details for the game as of yet, so it’s all quite the mystery. Definitely worth a shot to register and see what it’s all about. Thoughts on the reveal? Sound off in the comments.
