'Hyper Universe' Early Access Update Adds New Character, Game Mode And More

Hyper Universe blends side-scrolling action platforming with the intense strategic, team-based gameplay of MOBAs.

Join the battle-ready Hypers and use their insane abilities to defeat the opposing team and bring about victory.

In Hyper Universe, players will take control of one of a multitude of battle-ready “Hypers” and use their insane abilities to defeat the opposing team and bring about victory. Taking many shapes and sizes, the Hypers range from a mage who rains down giant snowmen on his enemies, to a mongoose riding astride an armored rhinoceros, to a tentacled Admiral with the power of the kraken at his call, and more! The distinctive playable characters, inspired by legendary icons in popular culture, fall into a diverse set of both new and traditional MOBA roles to create a frenetic battlefield filled with a wealth of crazy techniques and exhibitions of skill.

Played using a two handed keyboard control scheme, Hyper Universe combines the gameplay found in a side-scrolling action platform title with the highly strategic teamoriented play of a MOBA. Every Hyper brings a new strategy and wealth of crazy techniques to the fight.

It’s a Hyper Universe… Anything goes.

Hyper Universe is rolling out another Early Access content update for fans today, introducing an all-new Hyper - Signal and a new capture the points gameplay mode. The new mode and Cube Bonus Event will be available for a limited time until Oct. 4.

This newest Hyper Universe content update, available now on Steam, features:

  • New Hyper – Signal: This bounty hunter chooses to keep a distance from enemies as he utilizes his sharpshooting skills to inflict lethal blows from afar. Signal’s target scan ability also grants vision to enemies, so trying to hide from this sharpshooter will prove ineffective. During Early Access, players can purchase this new Hyper in the game for 15,000 GP (Game Points), which can be earned from playing matches or completing the tutorial.
  • New Event Map – Fortress of the Guardians: Until Oct. 4, Early Access players must team up and capture a random number of shrines throughout the new map. A team that captures more shrines than the other will earn 25 points, and each team needs a total of 100 points to win the round. In time, new shrine locations will randomly appear, making for frantic and chaotic gameplay.
  • Service Region Updates: Hyper Universe will also begin supporting more countries including South East Asia and Japan.
  • Cube Bonus Reward: Players can earn at least double the amount of Hyper cubes until Oct. 4., granting them more opportunities to earn Hyper skins, emotes and emblems.

Join Early Access today and get 24 Hypers unlocked from the start with their unique gear (worth an estimated $120), plus 4 more are unlocked upon leveling up.

Key Features

  • Reimagined Side-Scrolling MOBA Levels: In a unique twist on the MOBA genre, players are challenged with five turrets to dominate and defend across a seven-level high, side-scrolling map with new map variants in development.
  • Six Dynamic Character Types: Players have their choice from a diverse set of both new and traditional MOBA roles that create a frenetic battlefield dripping with synergistic opportunities.
  • Inspired by Pop Culture: Hyper Universe offers a multitude of distinctive playable characters, called Hypers, inspired by legendary icons in popular culture.
  • Action-Oriented Mayhem: MOBA fans will jump into the fray with two handed keyboard controls, dashing and jumping across the game map toward victory.
