Just as the beta for Hyper Scape is ending, we get to see when Hyper Scape will be heading to the consoles for more fun
Almost as quick as the announcement came out for Hyper Scape, we are seeing it leave its open beta and head to a full release on the PC. Not only the PC but now we see when the PS4 and Xbox One gamers will get a chance to jump into this new battle royale title Ubisoft is offering up for free. There is still time to give Hyper Scape a go during the beta as it runs until August 2nd but I know some of you would rather just play the final build first. That or you do not have a strong enough PC to actually play games on and will be waiting for the consoles to open up. For that, you can just join in the fun on Twitch with the special application that is there for the game.
Without further gilding the lily, Hyper Scape is hitting the consoles on August 11th and those gamers will be able to jump into the mix. Granted, if you stream for only an hour on the PC version over on Twitch there will be some extra rewards. You will just need to figure out the level of involvement you will want to give the game. Only some of the beta stuff will carry over for Hyper Scape, so it makes sense that you may or may not want to go into the beta. You can watch the following video to see if it will be worth your time and effort for a short time. We are only offering up the facts and dates for you to figure things for yourself there.
Hyper Scape — Season 1 Announcement
Hyper Scape, the free-to-play, frenetic battle royale, is coming to PS4 and Xbox One starting August 11. Season 1, titled “The First Principle,” will introduce new limited-time game modes, a new weapon, and hack, new features for Crowncast (Hyper Scape’s interactive Twitch extension), and provide insight into the lore and universe of Hyper Scape.
Season 1 adds a new gun, the Dragonfly, and new hack, Magnet, for a total of 11 weapons and 11 hacks, each of which can be fused up to four times into increasingly powerful versions. The First Principle will also introduce new limited-time game modes, a new in-game Melee event (which makes all melee attacks instantly lethal), and both a free and premium 100-tier Battle Pass.
The game’s PC Open Beta runs until August 2, and thanks to cross-progression, any items you’ve unlocked – either through the in-game shop or the current 30-tier Battle Pass – will carry over to the console version when the game officially launches. Thanks to the Crowncast Twitch extension, you can progress your Battle Pass by watching Twitch streams even if you haven’t played the game on PC, and you will get any rewards you’ve earned when you sign in to Hyper Scape on console for the first time. Crowncast itself will see the addition of a new feature in Season 1: The Kudos feature will now allow viewers to react to exciting (POG) moments in chat by using Bits to generate a visual effect that appears in a streamer’s game.
As the Open Beta period comes to an end, the development team wishes to thank players (even those who technically haven’t played yet) with the opportunity to earn 600 Bitcrowns, Hyper Scape’s premium in-game currency. All you have to do between now and the end of the Open Beta on August 2 is play the game or watch a Crowncast-enabled Twitch stream for just one hour.
Hyper Scape is launching free-to-play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 11.
