League of Legends developer Riot Games has just announced it is working on a new competitive first-person shooter codenamed 'Project A', and is begin worked on by a new team within Riot.

It has nothing to do with League of Legends and marks the first time Riot Games has made something outside of the League of Legends universe. There's virtually nothing known about Project A right now, other than executive producer Anna Donlon teasing during the livestream: "We've put anti-cheat at the forefront of our development, and we will do whatever it takes to preserve the integrity of your matches".

What we do know about Project A is that it is a character-based tactical shooter that seems to blend the worlds of Overwatch and CS:GO together, with Riot teasing that Project A is based on an near-future Earth. Riot explained: "The game is set on a beautiful near-future Earth and has a lethal cast of characters, each with unique abilities that create tactical opportunities for their gunplay to shine".

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
