Gearbox have announced their secret incoming shooter and collectible card game, Project 1v1, and you can sign up for the Project 1v1 closed technical test.
There was a time when I would have bemoaned the non-stop surge of MOBAs hitting the market. Those days have come and gone, and it is now online collectible card games of all forms that are all the rage and threatening to burn us out. Valve just announced that they are working on a DotA 2 based card game, and now Gearbox have announced that they are working on a new 1v1 PvP shooter that incorporates a collectible card metagame, which for name is dubbed Project 1v1. Ah well, at least there is a Project 1v1 closed technical test inbound that you can sign up for.
Very little is known about Project 1v1, including the actual name. What little is known can be found on the game’s rather sparse website. All of the important details can be pretty much summed up in the official blurb from the Project 1v1 website:
“Project 1v1 is the code name for Gearbox’s top-secret, in-development, competitive first-person shooter that combines the action of fast-paced 1v1 first-person combat with the metagame strategy of a collectible card game.”
The website also mentions that the Project 1v1 closed technical test is sometime this summer (so presumably soon since the summer is a good way gone) and will be focused on North America. Three game modes will be available to try out during the test, and that is about the limit of what we know. If you would like to sign up for the Project 1v1 closed technical test, you can find the link on the game’s website. You will need to sign up via a Gearbox SHiFT account, which you can create if you don’t already have one. Check it out!
