Following VALORANT's Lead
Ubisoft's hotly-anticipated Battle Royale game Hyper Scape has made its debut, and it's following in the footsteps of another recent shooter: VALORANT. If you're like to get your hands on a Hyper Scape beta key, you're going to need to get lucky.
Previously, Riot Games' first-person shooter VALORANT made its debut a few months ago with an interesting new twist on beta key distribution: the only way to get a beta key was to connect your Riot Games account to your Twitch account and get it as a random Twitch Drop. This system stayed in place throughout the beta until its eventual live release.
Now, it looks like Ubisoft is doing the exact same thing: they've handed out a Hyper Scape beta key to a handful of lucky streamers, and the only way you'll be able to get one is by watching and waiting.
"A brand-new urban battle royale begins today," stated a tweet on the official Hyper Scape account. "#HyperScape is now live on Twitch! Watch streams to earn access to the Technical Test via Twitch Drops."

To get your Hyper Scape beta key, you're going to need an Ubisoft account and you'll have to link it to your Twitch account.
How Do I Link my Ubisoft and Twitch Accounts?
- Go to drops-register.ubi.com and click on "Get Started."

How Do I Activate my Hyper Scape Beta Key?
