Is Fortnite Dead? Hyper Scape Can Make a Case For It

Ven Daniels

he battle royale space amongst gamers is dominated by games such as Call of Duty: Warzone, Fortnite, and Apex Legends, so surely the hype is still alive for the king-of-the-hill elimination games. We are even blessed with new unique style elimination games that come in the form of Fall Guys. But Hyper Scape, once a beta, is now here to stay and here is everything we know about it.

When Is The Hyper Scape Release Date?

Hyper Scape has been officially released on August 11, 2020 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One for free!

Is Hyper Scape Cross-Platform?

Ubisoft has confirmed that cross-progression is possible, so no matter what platform you choose to play on, you can carry your progress and unlocks on your account. If you played through the previous Open Beta Battle Pass by receiving Twitch stream drops, any of your content that you've unlocked is available to claim on your account when you sign in. However, cross-play between separate platforms is currently not available but planned for a future update. Also, you shouldn't have to worry about device advantages and disadvantages, because Prisma Dimensions has mentioned cross-play to be an optional feature.

What Is Hyper Scape?

Hyper Scape is a first-person shooter which utilizes the battle royale game mode, uniquely set many decades into the future where humanity is crammed into ultra-modern "megacities." It has an Apex Legends vibe, but it offers shorter matches and lots of verticality in the gameplay. Like the typical battle royale, you'll probably spend much of your game scavenging the map looking for upgraded weapons and gear.

What Is Unique About Hyper Scape?

The main map is called Neo Arcadia, and it's the only playable map which can hold up to 100 characters per game. It offers a lot of indoor spaces for close quarters combat, as well as massive skyscrapers and wide open parks for good sniping opportunities. Beyond the regular weapons, players utilize hacks which are skills and abilities that change the dynamic of the game; these include healing, teleporting, pinging other players, and more.

When you're eliminated in the match, you're not immediately out of the game. Instead, you become an "Echo" which is basically a ghost where you can observe the map and help out your teammates while they're in combat, and those eliminated players can also return back into the action if their team fully eliminates another squad.

How To Play Hyper Scape

To play Hyper Scape on PC, for now you need to use the Ubisoft Uplay Launcher to download the game, and create a free account to install the game. For Xbox One you can download the battle royale on the Microsoft Store, and for PS4 you can download it on the Playstation Store. All methods are FREE!
