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.

Fans of the title can also pre-order a special Ultimate Hypers Pack for $19.99 available starting today on Xbox. Valued at over $120, the deal includes instant access to all 39 Hypers at launch and all future Hypers, as well as six Xbox-exclusive Hyper skins to show off on the battlefield. Players who pre-order the Ultimate Hypers Pack by August 6 will also receive Celine’s Aurora's Arrow skin at launch.

“Bringing one of the most unique MOBA experiences on the market to the Xbox console represents a huge opportunity for us,” said Jungsoo Lee, President of Nexon America. “The fast-paced action of MOBA video games forces players to think strategically, and we know console gamers will love it.”

Hyper Universe will be viewable at the official Xbox Mixer stream during E3 in Los Angeles on June 13.

Free codes, which will unlock the exclusive Jennifer’s Aurora’s Light skin available at launch, will also be distributed at the Xbox FanFest during E3 from June 10-11.

Currently available on PC (Steam) Hyper Universe is coming to Xbox One on August 7, 2018.
