Riot Games' upcoming fighting game, despite not yet having an official title, will be playable for attendees of this year's EVO tournament.

The details:

  • The team behind Project L revealed its unique 2v2 team-based gameplay in Duo Mode in a new developer diary, allowing friends to not only play against one another but also join forces against two other opponents. It works in the same way as a traditional tag team match, with one fighter on each team in the arena and the other off-screen, ready to jump in whenever necessary. Riot also revealed that the game will retain a standard 1v1 mode as well as a 2v1 mode for those looking for an extra challenge.
  • The "Fuse" system, which is essentially power-ups to give your team an advantage in a matchup, is also introduced in the 2v2 mode. The full list of Fuses has yet to be revealed, but we can see the 2x Assist power-up in action in a full gameplay video, which allows the off-screen player to jump into the fight and help out their teammates twice in a row instead of just once, dealing significant damage to the enemy.
  • Executive producer Tom Cannon announces at the end of the developer diary that a fully playable build of the game will be available for all to play on the show floor of EVO 2023, the world's largest fighting game tournament. The event will take place in Las Vegas from August 4-6, and we're likely to hear opinions about the game's mechanics from some of the world's best fighting game players. Cannon also confirmed that another update will be released soon, revealing even more gameplay details.
