After several leaks, Ubisoft has officially announced Project Q. This “team combat arena allows players to own the experience truly” and clarifies that it is not a Battle Royale.
Ubisoft announced the news on Twitter, commenting that ” the game is in early development, and we will continue to test, so for now, all you can do is sign up for upcoming tests .” They also shared the first concept art for the game, with Ubisoft adding that it is not a battle royale and instead ” will feature a variety of PvP modes with one goal in mind: FUN! “
The image shows four characters in what could very well be Central Park in New York City. Although it is only concept art, it hints at some of his abilities. The character on the left uses some hand rocket and carries what appears to be dynamite; another character has a lightning bolt in his hair and a yellow outfit, suggesting he might have lightning abilities or be very fast. There is also a character holding a shovel who seems to have the ability to fly or glide. Finally, a character with glasses is standing on the bridge, observing everything.
As reported by VGC, Project Q gameplay has begun to leak online after Ubisoft invited players to try this new game. It looks similar to Fortnite, but Ubisoft claims it’s not a Battle Royale.
It was said to have two game modes, Battle Royale-style Showdown and a control-style mode called Battle Zone, but Ubisoft’s statements could mean that Showdown is a different type of mode. It was also said that the game would have heroes with unique weapons, abilities, and skills and something called “Wonders.”
Weapons are different from traditional ones and include a “deck of cards, fireworks, hammers, clubs and paint guns.”
Project Q is another game that was part of the GeForce Now database leak, which also included a PC version of Final Fantasy VII Remake and God of War, a remaster of Chrono Cross, and other titles that have ended up being confirmed.
