What is the mysterious Ubisoft Project U about? | Digital Trends Spanish

Ubisoft revealed a mysterious new “session-based” co-op shooter called Project U in the most understated way possible: by quietly launching a official Web site and opening registration for the closed beta. The website went live on Friday, and the French publisher said the game will explore a completely new concept in the shooter genre.

“The codename Project U explores a new concept of session-based cooperative shooter, where many players band together to prevail against an overwhelming threat!” Ubisoft wrote at the bottom of the website. The statement implies that Project U is a working title in the same way that Project Eve was a working title for Stellar Blade. As such, the game is in early development, and the company is looking for people to play the closed beta on PC.

The closed beta test for Project you will be available exclusively to select registered players living in Western Europe, though it will be conducted entirely in English. Players must live in one of the following countries: France, Germany, UK, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain and Italy.

Since the closed beta test is exclusive to PC, you may want to upgrade to a good working computer unless you’ve already done so, regardless of whether you’re going to be gaming at 30fps or 60fps. The recommended PC specifications are as follows.

Recommended Specs for 30fps:

  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460, AMD Ryzen 3 1200
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 (8GB VRAM) or AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 (8GB VRAM)
  • RAM memory: 16 GB dual channel

Recommended Specs for 60fps:

  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K, AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 (8GB VRAM) or AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 (8GB VRAM)
  • RAM memory: 16 GB dual channel

Project U’s closed beta test start date is currently unknown, so the only thing registrants can do after registering on the game’s website is wait for an email to see if they’re invited to participate. If you get the invite, download the game and play it through Ubisoft Connect.
