Gearbox's New Game is a Competitive First-Person Shooter Codenamed Project 1v1

As evident by its codename, the game will pit two players against each other in a first person shooter environment, but bizarrely with "the metagame strategy of a collectible card game".

Gearbox Software, the studio behind Borderlands and Battleborn, has revealed a new game, now codenamed Project 1v1.

How can the worlds of first-person combat and collectible card games combine? The developer is looking for a small amount of players to test the game's online infrastructure, as well as receive feedback from fans in order to tweak and improve it as they develop it. As it turns out, Gearbox has a different "top-secret" project in development as well. While global players can sign up, servers will be hosted in North America, so the game may not run ideally for those elsewhere in the world. The website informs us that Gearbox will be holding a closed technical test this summer, which will include 3 game modes: Ranked, Challenge, and Arena. 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. In Ranked, players will be matched up against opponents based on their ratings and can earn experience and crates containing new cards.

Wide receiver Brandin Cooks dominates Patriots scrimmage with Jaguars
It is certainly an encouraging sign to see the Patriots have some success against the Jaguars in their first joint practice. It's a good measuring stick. "You get exhausted of playing against each other, you want to see somebody else", Butler said.

Challenge a friend to an unranked match.

Not much else is known about the project, but we'll be sure to let you know once Gearbox provides more details.
