It’s not Borderlands 3: Gearbox to show new 1v1 shooter behind closed doors at E3 2018

Borderlands fans will be frustrated to hear that Gearbox is showing a new shooter at E3 2018 to press – but it’s not the highly-anticipated Borderlands 3.

Instead, Gearbox is showing it’s 1v1 multiplayer shooter and card hybrid.

It’s a relatively secretive project, having been in a closed technical test last August.

No footage of Project 1v1 will be shown outside of the closed doors presentation at E3, although you can expect some hands-on written impressions. Presumably we’ll also learn it’s proper name.

Here’s what appears to be the first image of the game:

“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,” says Gearbox of its mysterious PC project.

Digital Extremes tried a shooter and collectible card game hybrid last year, but that didn’t end well.

It shitcanned The Amazing Eternals back in October.

For those keeping track of Gearbox’ other games in development, Borderlands 3 has been delayed.
