Following Numerous Leaks, Ubisoft Officially Announces Project Q

Late last year, a GeForce Now database from Nvidia leaked to the public revealed a plethora of unannounced games. One of Ubisoft’s entries on that list, Project Q, recently had more details come to light, precipitating Ubisoft’s official announcement of the game. Project Q is expected to be a “PvP battle arena game” that features a low player count, a fast-paced battle royale mode on a small map, and a more traditional objective capture mode.

“So, we heard you heard,” tweeted Ubisoft. “Introducing codename ‘Project Q,’ a team battle arena letting players truly own the experience! The game is in early development and we will keep testing, so for now all you can do is register for upcoming tests.”

Media company eXputer.com‘s coverage of the announcement included early gameplay footage of Project Q. While the footage did feature some projectile weapons, it didn’t exactly look like a “shooter.” The demo player had a choice of numerous items with unique abilities, like “Icarus Wings” offering a high jump and hover, or “Wukong’s Staff” featuring martial arts chain combo abilities. The players could also freely switch between ranged attacks and melee combos in short, frenetic brawls. 

That focus on movement and melee combat could set Project Q apart from the numerous PvP shooters on the market, and may be a motivating factor behind its curious “battle arena game” designation.
