Ubisoft's foray into the popular battle royale, Hyper Scape, has been enjoying some fairly positive first impressions. The fast-paced urban squad-based battle royale has been in closed beta for a while, mainly as a Technical Test. This meant unless you knew the right people or were really lucky, you wouldn't be playing it any time soon.
Well, that has changed. Announced at this year's Ubisoft Forward conference, Hyper Scape will now be entering an Open Beta. If you have a gaming PC, the servers are open. Download it and see what the fuss is about.
New features will also be coming for those lucky few who played earlier builds. Hyper Scape will introduce Crown Rush Solo, a 100-player free-for-all version of its main
Battle Royale mode. This Open Beta will also feature two new limited-time modes: Hack Runner Squad and Turbo Mode Squad. Additionally, the Open Beta includes one new hack and weapon, Shockwave and Harpy respectively. These additions build on the previously available nine weapons and nine hacks from the Technical Test.
Hyper Scape’s Open Beta will also introduce all-new features to the Crowncast Twitch extension, including progression for the brand new, free to all players, 30 tier Battle Pass. By watching Hyper Scape live streams on Twitch and the ability for streamers to invite viewers directly into their squad from Twitch chat. These additions are on top of the previously available Viewer Events, which allow all Twitch viewers the opportunity to 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. The Open Beta introduces a new Event called Haste that increases the game’s speed for all contenders. If you like playing on Twitch, expect things to take major crazy turns at the drop of a hat.
Hyper Scape does have plans to launch as well on Xbox and PlayStation platforms. But if you can't wait, now's the time to check it out with the Hyper Scape open beta available now.
