Developer Gearbox is working on a new game. Codenamed Project 1v1, it combines “fast-paced 1v1 first person combat with the metagame strategy of a collectible card game.”
Not much is known about the game, but the official website has revealed that Gearbox will host a closed beta later this winter. Unfortunately, the tests will only be held on North American servers, so if you do manage to get in, you won’t have an optimal experience.
Three modes will be included in the beta:
- Ranked - Get matched with an opponent based on player rating. Win ranked matches to earn experience and crates containing new cards.
- Challenge - Challenge a friend to an unranked match.
- Arena - Queue up to challenge the current Arena champion – and win to take their place.
Gearbox’s last major release was 2016’s Battleborn. The game mixed first-person shooter mechanics, with MOBA-style multiplayer elements.
