Does the world need another battle royale? Ubisoft seems to think so. The company announced Hyper Scape, their new free-to-play fast-paced battle royale that focuses on verticality and fast-paced combat. Hyper Scape is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC with a closed PC test taking place this week. Unfortunately, South Africa is not on the list to participate in the test. However, players can still tune into Twitch to watch the action go down.
Hyper Scape is a 100-player battle royale that sees players drop down into a virtual city called Neo-Arcadia as they fight for the crown. The game features three-player squads and solo modes. The city of Neo-Arcadia features a range of unique locations each with their own combat approach. Across the city, players will also find landmarks which hold unique loot and an abundance of it too. However, these locations are usually swarming with other players after the same goods.
Combat revolves heavily around hacks and the futuristic weaponry. Players can loot classics such as an auto rifle but there’s also other weapons such as a laser sniper rifle and energy cannon. The game also revolves around Hacks which are game-changing abilities players can find throughout the map. These range from offensive, defensive and even movement abilities. Players can also upgrade their weapons multiple times by looting the same weapon over again. This will automatically merge the parts together to provide a more powerful and stable weapon often with a faster cooldown too.
While SA players cannot participate in the test, the game will launch here when it releases. Ubisoft did not reveal a date for the game yet. You can check out the Hyper Scape gameplay overview trailer down below;
