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

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

Gearbox Software, the studio behind Borderlands and Battleborn, has revealed a new game, now codenamed Project 1v1.

Gearbox revealed a new game yesterday that isn't Borderlands 3 - it's a combination of a first-person shooter and a collectible card game. The early look at the game will offer three modes: ranked, challenge and arena.

Gearbox says on the game's official landing page that it is looking for a limited number of players to test the online infrastructure and learn what players think about the game - feedback that'll potentially be used to steer future development. Reports of players receiving email invites to the technical test are known to have arrived. In Ranked, players will be matched up against opponents based on their ratings and can earn experience and crates containing new cards. Gearbox notes that the "test will be held on North American servers, so worldwide players may experience decreased performance". Challenge maps allow players to compete against friends in unranked matches.

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

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. 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.
