Project L Gameplay
Project L is a 2v2 tag fighter, unlike the 1v1 fighting we first teased in 2019. However, as executive producer Tom Cannon explains in the Duo Play dev diary, “Project L isn’t just a tag-based fighting game, it’s a 2v2 team-based fighting game.”
Project L has created a support character mechanism to help with all sorts of wacky combos. This ability will allow you to summon a secondary character, whether an AI or a human buddy, to unleash strong moves that will aid you in combat and allow you to lengthen your combos.
If your health is running low, you can tag in your secondary partner to take over the match, giving your primary character some breathing room. During the Duo Play dev diary, game director Shaun Rivera states that Project L “will support 1v1, 2v2, and even 2v1 matchups,” implying that solo players can still compete against duos.
The Project L Fuse mechanism is undoubtedly the most innovative mechanic we’ve seen thus far. During champ choose, players can tailor their duo’s playstyle by selecting from “powerful synergies” that “really allow player expression to shine.”
The ‘2x Assist’ Fuse, for example, “allows your team to throw out two assists back-to-back instead of just one,” according to Rivera. This provides valuable instruction for duos that aren’t on comms and provides the opponent(s) with another factor to consider and play around with.
