Gearbox reveals its new FPS/card game hybrid, Project 1v1

Gearbox Software Has a New IP – Card Game  First Person Shooter

While fans are waiting for any inkling of another Borderlands game, Gearbox Software has now announced a brand new game. A "short" closed technical test is scheduled for this summer, and Gearbox has opened sign-ups for the beta on its website.

Project 1v1 is described as a "competitive first-person shooter that combines the action of fast-paced 1v1 first-person combat with the metagame strategy of a collectible card game". The test will have three available modes: Ranked, Challenge and Arena. How that exactly works is unclear at this point as Gearbox hasn't released a lot of information on the project.

Gearbox says on the game's official landing page that it is looking for a limited number of players to test the online infrastructure and learn what players think about the game - feedback that'll potentially be used to steer future development. We don't know very much about the game except that the ranked mode will let players earn crates to get new cards.


Since these are just what are being offered in the technical test, the full game will likely contain more features.

Arena, which will have you "Queue up to challenge the current Arena champion - and win to take their place". Challenge maps allow players to compete against friends in unranked matches. Other than that, there isn't much else to go on at the moment, now the website's FAQ doesn't link anywhere and there are no other details on what formats the game may come to beyond PC.
