With the game currently in beta on PC, Ubisoft has revealed that Hyper Scape will launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 11. Its first official season will coincide with the launch and is entitled “The First Principle.”
New content will also be added to the game. Most notably, a battle pass will be present. “This Battle Pass offers a free and a premium track and features 100 tiers of exclusive cosmetic items to unlock during the Season. The premium track of the Battle Pass is available for 950 Bitcrowns, the in-game currency.”
“Similar to the Open Beta, viewers can progress their Battle Pass simply by watching Hyper Scape streams on Twitch with the Hyper Scape Crowncast extension enabled. Additional customisation items will be available through the in-game shop.”
Come August 11, players will also find a new weapon and hack available. The Dragonfly is a new mid-range weapon, while Magnet can be used to trap unsuspecting contenders.
Finally, the game will see an overarching narrative for players to follow. Season One introduces Memory Shards that players can collect to discover more about certain characters and events. Every week, a new Memory Shard will be hidden in the game world, for players to find and collect. There will also be comics released during Season One and following Seasons, building Hyper Scape’s story even further.
Hyper Scape launches on August 11 for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. Will you be playing this new Battle Royale?
