Gearbox Software Is Testing a New FPS With Card-Game Elements

Gearbox Reveals Project 1v1, A Competitive FPS Mixed With The Metagame Strategy Of A CCG

Gearbox announces Project 1v1 a fast-paced FPS with collectible card elements

While it maybe be considered a shooter, Project 1v1 is more of a hybrid between first person shooters and collectible card games like Hearthstone.

Codenamed Project 1v1, Gearbox is creating 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", according to the game's website.

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. As it turns out, Gearbox has a different "top-secret" project in development as well.

Players who're interested in taking part can sign up to the beta via Gearbox's Shift website.

The closed test will feature three game modes. Reports of players receiving email invites to the technical test are known to have arrived. We don't know very much about the game except that the ranked mode will let players earn crates to get new cards. Because the servers are based in North America, Gearbox warns that worldwide players may experience decreased performance.

We're positive we'll hear more about Project 1v1 (obviously a code name) sometime in the near future. Arena, on the other hand, puts players in a queue to take down the current champion of the Arena in order to sit on the throne.
