Gearbox Software announces a new 1v1 shooter-card game hybrid

Gearbox announces Project 1v1 a fast-paced FPS with collectible card elements Gearbox Reveals Project 1v1, A Competitive FPS Mixed With The Metagame Strategy Of A CCG

Gearbox Software may have swung and missed with their most recent game called Battleborn, but they're not going to let that slow them down.

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".

With such little information, it's hard to get excited by this announcement, but you never know what to expect from Gearbox either, so it'll be interesting to see which side of the scale this one lands on.

There will be three modes playable in the upcoming technical test: Ranked, Challenge and Arena.

Surprise! Rez Infinite is out on Steam, Oculus Rift, and Vive Today
For the first two weeks, players can get the Digital Deluxe DLC for free with purchase of the game. The game is getting a 20% discount immediately on Steam and on Oculus Home , available for $19.99.

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. Gearbox notes that the "test will be held on North American servers, so global players may experience decreased performance".

While it's not giving out too much information just yet, it did announce it would have a "Closed Technical Test" sometime this summer.

With even the announcement website's FAQ being listed as "coming soon" there is no time frame on when we will get to see Project 1v1 in action. In Ranked, players are matched with a foe around their similar level, winning will result in experience and new cards.
