Project A, first announced at Riot Games' 10 year celebration event for League of Legends, is a class-based FPS and fans are eager for more information. Henry "HenryG" Greer, a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive commentator posted a Twitter thread Tuesday about the game, as he recently went hands-on with the title as part of a testing session.

Riot Games Project A Takeaways

"Hello! Strap yourself in. I had the chance to spend a day playing Project A at Riot EU. Today, I'm allowed to share some of my initial thoughts and impressions. Please bear with me, I can't go into too much detail about the specifics of a lot of the gameplay until a later date," HenryG said in the thread's opening.

"First of all, at its core, Project A is essentially a round based, 5on5, tactical shooter (most similar to CS:GO as a twitter surface level comparison), with the better (and slightly diluted) elements of class/hero based FPS games such as Overwatch or Apex Legends, for example."

HenryG explained the gameplay and weapon mechanics were satisfying to play. He also praised the map design and that players won't have to rely too much on using abilities as assists in the game.

He ended the Twitter thread with a statement, "Project A is the best game I have played since CS:GO." While opinions are simply that, it's sure to get the CS:GO community excited about the title.

Esports personalities replied to the thread expressing their excitement for the title as well. If executed correctly, Riot Games might take the first-person shooter genre by storm.
