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