Ubisoft will officially release its battleroyal game Hyper Scape on August 11. Season 1 kicks off and the game is available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A beta version for the PC was already playing.
The release of the free-to-play game is accompanied by the introduction of Season One and an accompanying Battle Pass. There is a free variant and a paid version, which costs 950 Bitcrowns. That in-game currency can be earned by playing the game, or bought with real money.
The season will also have its own storyline, according to Ubisoft, with different game modes that will be available for a limited time. These are additions to the current Solo and Squad modes. Players who have already acquired cosmetic items during the beta can use them in the release version of the game. Items can be transferred from the PC version to console versions. Crossplay between PC and consoles is also supported.
Ubisoft also released an update for the Hyper Scape beta on Thursday. Version 0.5 includes the time-to-killvalue adjusted. According to players, it took too long for opponents to die and Ubisoft has therefore shortened the ttk. This was done by strengthening the weapons and limiting the influence of defensive Hacks. All adjustments that have been made are described in the patch notes. The PC beta will end on August 2.
Hyper Scape was announced in early July. It is Ubisoft’s answer to games like PUBG, Warzone, Fortnite and Apex Legends. With the fast gameplay and futuristic setting, the publisher seems to want to compete with the latter game in particular. In Hyper Scape, a hundred players compete against each other.
