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

Gearbox is making another new game that isn’t Borderlands 3

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.
