Ubisoft Begins PlayTest of “Project U” – A new Co-op Shooter

Sources have said that Ubisoft has begun playtesting registrations for a brand-new co-op shooter called “Project U”. Admittingly, not much is known about the new title, but after digging, it appears the game already has a page on the Ubisoft website.

The website says that Ubisoft U is a “new concept of session-based co-op shooter, where many players unite to prevail against an overwhelming threat!”

Currently, the game is only open in a closed playtest capacity to PC players. Ubisoft has outlined Project U’s minimum and recommended requirements:

Minimum Requirements: 30 FPS: OS : Windows 10 CPU: Intel Core i5-4460, AMD Ryzen 3 1200 GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 (8GB of VRAM) or AMD Radeon RX 570 (8GB of VRAM) RAM : 16 GB dual channel

Recommended Requirements: 60 FPS: OS : Windows 10 CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K, AMD Ryzen 5 2600 GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 (8GB of VRAM) or AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 (8GB of VRAM) RAM : 16 GB dual channel

Earlier in the year, Ubisoft also confirmed the development of a new arena shooter called “Project Q“, which was described as a “Team Battle Arena” game. Although some believed that the game was cancelled following the titles poor reception, it’s understood that the game is still in development and in active playtesting.

Ubisoft currently has several free-to-play titles in the works including the highly anticeptated The Division: Heartlands and XDefiant, but it’s unclear if Project U will be joining Ubisoft’s push for the free-to-play market.
