Yesterday, a Project A fan account also posted what appears to be a leaked screenshot of the game featuring a character select screen for a character called Sage:
Most parts of this #ProjectA screenshot have been shared on various pages, here is the the full image in the highest resolution we could find!
L: Three character names [Brimstone; Sage; Viper], type [support; defense; offense?]

That screenshot, if legitimate, also appears to confrim characters called Viper and Brimstone, alongside a number of character portraits.
This design for Sage appears to match up with previously-shown Project A footage (below) of a character that uses a green orb to summon walls and resurrect teammates. Sage’s abilities shown in the image match with that footage, and place her as functioning something like Overwatch’s Mercy and Moira characters.Riot announced Project A – a PC hero shooter unconnected to the universe of League of Legends – at the end of last year. The game will be set on a near-future Earth, and will take the form of a 5v5 shooter with a search-and-destroy mode. Former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro HenryG said it felt most similar to CS:GO in action.
It’s not the only secretive game in development at Riot (which, for many years, only worked on League of Legends) – a long-rumoured fighting game, Project L is also in the works, alongside several others.
