Hyper Scape – Ubisoft’s Newest Creation
A New Challenger has appeared! Entering the Battle Royale game genre competing to be the best is Ubisoft’s newest addition ‘Hyper Scape’. Hyper Scape is a futuristic free to play battle royale shooter with the goal to be the last one standing out of 100 players. This game is perfect for First Person Shooter players.
Hyper Scape has relations to many games such as; Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Warzone & Fortnite, except with its own spin of abilities and combat system. It even relates to “Tom Clancy’s: Rainbow Six Siege” in terms of its movement mechanics. Speaking of R6S, Ubisoft did create that too, so perhaps R6S players may be able to transfer a good chunk of their skill to Hyper Scape.
The game will go through many ‘Seasons’, similar to how Overwatch’s competitive system works. It takes place throughout a 100% Urban arena, something that has never been created before allowing for an intensive and exciting gameplay experience.
You can play Hyper Scape on Playstation 4 & Xbox One when the game launches, sometime later this summer.
The ‘Technical Test’
Ubisoft right now (as of 06/07/2020) are running a ‘Technical Test’. Think of this test like a beta, and if you remember what Valorant did with their Twitch drop concept, this is very similar. This part is exclusive to players who receive the drop, for those who have a PC and can sign up, sorry PlayStations and Xbox players!
For a chance to play in the technical test, you will need to receive a Twitch drop on Twitch. To be able to receive the beta drop, you will need to follow 3 very simple steps:
- Link your Ubisoft account to your Twitch.
- Watch Hyper Scape live streams on Twitch.
- When you receive the notification that you have it, download through Uplay and you’re good to go!
Keep in mind that there is not long of the ‘Technical Test’ left as it ends July 8th at 8 am! The game will launch sometime this Summer in 2020, keep your eyes peeled on my blog and on Hyper Scape’s social media for updates on the launch!
Your progress from the Technical Test will carry over to the game’s launch, so you can play without a worry of a reset!
The Battle Pass
Like the majority of other battle royales and other games, Hyper Scape has decided to also hop on this train. You can unlock cosmetics by levelling up through the battle pass or purchase the pass to unlock the next row of cosmetics as you level up.
Once unlocked, you can equip these virtual cosmetics in the gaming virtual world.
Remember, since this is a free to play game, like Fortnite, it will have microtransactions.
Battle Royale With a Twist
Enjoy a Battle Royale with a huge gameplay twist, giving players new challenges to face as they fight to be the last one standing out of 100 people.
Win In A Different Way
One of the biggest twists is a new feature to win; capturing the crown. Towards the end of a match when few players are standing, a crown will spawn. Some call this the ‘Crown Rush’ when all the players are persuaded to fight for the crown.
Holding the crown for 45 seconds will mean that you will become victorious, holding it is the risk. This prevents players from hiding towards the end of the game and provides a more action-packed gameplay experience alongside a new motive and alternate direction you can take to be at the top.
Bend the rules with abilities, or as in-game terms, ‘hacks’. Ironically, this is not cheating, rather this is an entirely new mechanic with exciting abilities to keep you and everyone else on their toes.
There are many abilities ranging from; ‘Teleportation’ (teleport so far in front of you) to ‘Reveal’ (ping enemies within a certain range around you).
To help work alongside your abilities and defend the crown, you can find ‘Weapon Mods’ to buff your weapon in some way.
Like every other battle royale, Hyper Scape has not taken the spark to run around and scavenge weapons and resources to help prepare you to fight. As you do so, you can find extra parts and modifications to buff your weapon. You can improve the fire rate, recoil control, range etc.
I hope from this article you have learnt a lot about Hyper Scape! I wish you luck on receiving your Twitch drop for the Technical Test and I will see you around when the game launches this Summer in 2020!
