Hyper Scape was unveiled yesterday by Ubisoft and has already got the fans buzzing. This game brings some very unique features to the battle royale mode and people are already liking it. From the ‘echo’ mode to weapon fusion and battle events, this game could change the face of battle royale games. Take a look at the full gameplay trailer below:

What Is Hyper Scape?

This is a new free-to-play Battle Royale FPS set in a futuristic virtual world.

This new fast-paced AAA multiplayer game is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal who is also responsible for Rainbow Six Siege and Assasin’s Creed Valhalla.

Eagle-eyed fans have already uncovered a website for the in-game organisation Prisma Dimensions, along with information about the battle royale mode.

“Prisma Dimensions is thrilled to bring you the first iteration of the Hyper Scape on July 2nd – and with it, the pulse-pounding action of Crown Rush! Get ready to drop into the neon-drenched streets of the world’s premiere virtual city, Neo Arcadia. You’ll want to hit the ground running, as you’ll need every advantage you can find to give yourself a leg up on the competition. Only the best contenders will make it to the final showdown. Will you claim victory, or fall to the perils of the Hyper Scape?”

The game will feature 60 tick rate servers with cross-platform play. Gameplay does not feature any form of skill-based matchmaking, but it is something the developers are looking into.

Release Date

  • The game is rumoured to release on the 12th July on PC with a console release arriving later this year.
  • The teaser website for the title is now live! Check it out here.

Beta

  • Ubisoft is taking a similar approach to Riot’s FPS title Valorant in their beta.
  • Select streamers are being given access to the beta early.
  • Players can gain access to the Hyper Scape beta through watching those streamers and receiving a loot drop on Twitch.
  • This strategy was an overwhelming success for Valorant on Twitch.
  • Twitch streamers are live now and drops are enabled so go and check it out!

Modes

  • Crown Rush is the main in Hyper Scape.
  • 100 players are thrown into a Battle Royale map called Neo Arcadia.
  • Crown Rush can be played solo or in a squad.

Hacks

  • Hyper Scape has a similar looting system to other Battle Royales out currently. Players have to search the map to find weapons.
  • However, a difference in Hyper Scape is the presence of Hacks.
  • These are game-changing abilities that offer offensive, defensive and utility-based powers.
  • A player can hold two hacks at any time and switch at any point throughout the game.
  • If a player finds a hack or weapon that they already have, these weapons or hacks fuse to form an upgraded version.

Death and Resurrection

  • After dying in Hyper Scape, you are not simply a spectator like in other games, you become an Echo.
  • Becoming an Echo allows the player to scout ahead for their squad, however, they cannot engage in combat.
  • Once an enemy squad is defeated, a respawn point will appear allowing a player to leave the Echo form and resume in the action.

The Map

  • The setting of Hyper Scape is Neo Arcadia, a virtual, shimmering city designed to encourage vertical gameplay and fast-paced combat.
  • The map is filled with a range of landscapes to traverse, from skyscrapers to cramped interior rooms.
  • Players are dropped into the map in their personal deployment pod.
  • Similar to Apex Legends, in certain locations players have a higher chance of finding better gear. However, these increased rewards come with the risk of more players to fight.

The Showdown Phase

  • Once the ring has finally decayed to its final form and the last squads or players remain, the Showdown Phase will occur.
  • A crown will then spawn in the final area of the map.
  • In this phase, players have two methods of gaining victory.
  • They can either capture the crown and survive with it for 45 seconds.
  • Or, they can eliminate all other players in the final area.

Platforms

  • PC and consoles have been confirmed, but little is known about which consoles are included.
  • It’s likely that the game will appear on PS4 and Xbox One, with it being ported over to PS5 and Xbox Series X once it releases.

Crossplay

The game will feature crossplay and cross-platform progression between PC and consoles.

Price

The game is free-to-play and will not require you to purchase it. However, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see in-game purchases, as is the nature with most Battle Royale games.

Twitch Integration

  • Hyper Scape is said to be built with streamers in mind in a full partnership with Twitch.
  • It will feature never seen levels of integration from a big game before.
  • Twitch chat, among other things, will be able to directly impact the game live with game-changing events.
  • Much like Valorant, Ubisoft has invited hundreds of streamers, pro gamers and YouTubers to play the game (as well as selected press). We can expect gameplay footage next week.
