Gearbox announces Project 1v1, a first-person shooter / card-game hybrid

Share

The game is said to combine fast-paced FPS action and the metagame strategy of a collectible card game.

Gearbox, which is best known as the developer of the Borderlands series, has quietly revealed its next project.

Although the developer did not share any gameplay footage of the game, it will be hosting a closed technical test this summer where a limited number of participants will be able to try the game out and provide feedback. It will be an opportunity to stress-test the online infrastructure as well as learn what others think of the in-development project.

MILLA JOVOVICH 'In Final Talks' For HELLBOY Reboot
Milla Jovovich will be playing the main villain in the reboot and this is something to get rejoiced for the actress's fans. Jovovich has spent far too many years on the Resident Evil trash fire franchise, but she has talent beyond that role.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman becomes NFL's highest-paid RB
If Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell signs his franchise tag, he'll pass Freeman on the one-year deal. Freeman was drafted by the Falcons in the 4th round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Florida State.

Mark Levin flays Mitch McConnell for whining about Trump
Despite his pledge to take a brief hiatus from political pettiness, Fox News host Sean Hannity called for the leader to resign. Given what we know of Trump's undisciplined antics, the problem for the party is likely to get worse before it gets better.

The technical test will include three game modes: Ranked, Challenge, and Arena. Anyone interested in testing this upcoming game can sign up via the Shift website here. In Ranked, players are matched with a foe around their similar level, winning will result in experience and new cards.

Arena, which will have you "Queue up to challenge the current Arena champion - and win to take their place". Moreover, the test will be held on North American servers, so worldwide players may experience decreased performance. Unfortunately, that's virtually everything we know; the email Gearbox sent out to some fans and the game's new website both contain little more info than that.

But then we got Hearthstone, Elder Scrolls: Legends, Gwent... and this week alone we've seen both Valve and Gearbox announce projects with a collectible card game flavor.
