'Hyper Scape' (ALL) Gets Release Date, Season 1 And Battle Pass Details - Trailer

by Rainier on July 30, 2020 @ 12:24 p.m. PDT

Hyper Scape is a free-to-play fast-paced urban battle royale FPS that takes place in the distant future of 2054, where up to 100 Contenders descend upon the virtual city of Neo-Arcadia to engage in action-packed and fast-paced matches to be crowned champion.

Hyper Scape was designed from the ground up as an intense, vertical and fast-paced battle royale experience. Three-player squads and solo players can dive into the futuristic virtual city of Neo- Arcadia to engage in dynamic firefights, quickly transitioning from narrow streets to open rooftops and deadly interiors.

Hyper Scape introduces Hacks, abilities that players can loot in the world the same way they do weapons. Hacks grant offensive and defensive capabilities to suit all playstyles. Laying down a mine, seeking an enemy, protecting the squad with a big wall or turning invisible to sneak up on opponents are just a few examples of the Hacks players can combine and swap effortlessly. All Hacks and weapons can be upgraded through the Fusion mechanic to produce more powerful iterations of the pre-existing item.

Hyper Scape innovates and twists the battle royale formula in many ways, such as the unpredictable Decay which dissolves the map of Neo-Arcadia into different patterns, or the unique Echo mechanic that keeps players active in the battle even when they’re down. At the end of a Hyper Scape match, the climatic showdown phase starts when the Hyper Scape crown spawns on the map. Players have two different ways to claim victory, either by picking up and carrying the crown for 45 seconds or by being the last player or squad standing.

Ubisoft announced that Hyper Scape will launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 11 with its Season One: “The First Principle”.

Players will experience new gameplay content, new Hyper Scape Crowncast features, and will discover more about the Hyper Scape universe throughout the first Season. The Hyper Scape Open Beta, currently live on PC only, will end on August 2.

LIMITED TIME IN-GAME CURRENCY REWARD EVENT

As a thank you to all of our fans who have made the beta a success, we are launching a special reward event this weekend. Play the beta or watch on Twitch for at least one hour and you will receive 600 Bitcrowns on August 11th when Season One launches. There are two ways players can unlock this reward:

This reward is available starting today at 9:00 am PDT / 6:00 pm CEST and lasts until the Open Beta ends on Sunday August 2 at 11:59 pm PDT / Monday August 3 at 8:59 am CEST.

CONSOLE LAUNCH WITH SEASON ONE

Following PC-exclusive live phases, Xbox One and PS4 players will have the opportunity to jump into the Hyper Scape for the first time. Console players who have unlocked or purchased Technical Test and Open Beta cosmetic items, either by playing the live phases on PC or through Hyper Scape Crowncast, will have access to all those items when playing on console, as Hyper Scape supports cross-progression on all platforms.

“While the game has already been accessible on PC since our first test phase, Season One is for us the true launch of Hyper Scape,” says Graeme Jennings, Senior Producer for Hyper Scape at Ubisoft Montréal. “We have leveraged our test periods to develop and release frequent updates, notably on the global balance. With those updates we are now ready to welcome console players into the mix, with lots of new content to enjoy.”

NEW CONTENT COMING WITH SEASON ONE

Hyper Scape’s first season introduces a brand new mid-range weapon, the Dragonfly, as well as a new hack, Magnet, which can be used to trap unsuspecting contenders. Season One will include a total of 11 guns and 11 hacks. In addition to Solo and Squad Crown Rush, additional limited time game modes are also planned for Season One.

HYPER SCAPE’S STORY STARTS IN SEASON ONE

Season One kick-starts the overarching Hyper Scape narrative: There is a mystery in the Hyper Scape created by Prisma Dimensions that players will have to solve. Season One introduces Memory Shards that players can collect to discover more about certain characters and events. Every week, a new Memory Shard will be hidden in the game world, for players to find and collect. In addition to Memory Shards, comics will be released during Season One and following Seasons, building Hyper Scape’s story.

NEW FEATURES FOR THE CROWNCAST EXTENSION ON TWITCH

Hyper Scape’s first season will introduce a new feature to the innovative Hyper Scape Crowncast Twitch extension: Kudos, a tool that allows viewers to support their streamers and react to the most exciting moments by producing in-game visual effects within a particular streamer’s match - Kudos can be purchased with Twitch’s Bits, a virtual good that shows support for streamers.

Thanks to Hyper Scape Crowncast, viewers can also progress on their free and premium Battle Pass by watching Hyper Scape streams on Twitch. Streamers can also invite viewers to join their squad in just a few clicks. The Vote on Events feature that provide viewers real-time impact on the battle gets extended in Season one with a new event card called “Lethal Melee.” During a “Lethal Melee” event, a player’s melee weapon can eliminate opponents in one hit. In total, nine Event cards are already available in the Hyper Scape Crowncast extension.

SEASON ONE BATTLE PASS

Hyper Scape Season One also includes new customization items through its Battle Pass. This Battle Pass offers a free and a premium track and features 100 tiers of exclusive cosmetic items to unlock during the Season. The premium track of the Battle Pass is available for 950 Bitcrowns, the in-game currency. Players get Bitcrowns by simply playing the game, or by purchasing packs of Bitcrowns with real money on the Ubisoft or first party stores. Similar to the Open Beta, viewers can progress their Battle Pass simply by watching Hyper Scape streams on Twitch with the Hyper Scape Crowncast extension enabled. Additional customization items will be available through the in-game shop.

Hyper Scape is fun to play and rewarding to watch. Developed in partnership with Twitch, the Hyper Scape Crowncast Twitch extension will entertain viewers by letting them impact the game in real time, creating unprecedented interaction between streamers and their fans. Viewers will also have a real-time impact on the battle by voting on events that affect all contenders within a match, such as low gravity or infinite ammo.

Hyper Scape will launch its Season One for PC, Xbox One and PS4 on August 11, 2020, with PS5 and Xbox Series X versions to follow at alater time.
