Leaked gameplay shows Ubisoft’s Fortnite-style PvP game ‘Project Q’
UPDATE: Ubisoft officially confirms the PvP brawler
Ubisoft has started inviting players to test a new Fortnite-style PvP game, ‘Project Q’.
Closed test invites seen by VGC describe the game as “an innovative and modern PvP battle arena game”, and leaked footage (embedded below) looks reminiscent of Epic’s hugely popular battle royale title.
According to Ubisoft’s invite, Project Q is in early development and contains unpolished gameplay.
UPDATE: Ubisoft has officially acknowledged the game.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: “One of the main objectives of this first playable closed test is to get your impressions on the team’s vision for this new concept of game and on the core gameplay experience,” it says.
According to prolific leaker Tom Henderson, Project Q is being developed by Ubisoft Bordeaux, the studio which has typically provided support for games in the Assassin’s Creed and Rainbow Six series.
Project Q is said to have two game modes; “Showdown,” which is the game’s take on a Battle Royale consisting of four teams of two players, and “Battle Zone,” a mode in which two teams of four players battle to control an area of the map for as long as possible.
Players get to pick their heroes’ weapons, abilities, and skills, with a player being able to pick three individual “Wonders” that can be mixed and matched.
Weapons look particularly unique, with the game’s arsenal including a Deck of Cards, Fireworks, Hammers, Sticks, and Paintguns.
Project Q is yet another title first named in the now-infamous Nvidia GeForce Now games leak.
The GeForce Now database leak revealed several unannounced titles that would later be confirmed such as the PC version of Final Fantasy VII Remake and a remaster of Chrono Cross.
Nvidia confirmed at the time that the leaked Geforce Now database list containing God of War PC, Gears 6 and more was real, but it claimed that the games on it were “speculative”.
