Ubisoft Montreal's take on the battle royale genre has entered its open-beta phase, and to celebrate Hyper Scape's new milestone, the French publisher has released two never-before-seen trailers for the online title.
After a relatively short way, Hyper Scape's open beta is now available on PC — only via Uplay — allowing all players to get a handle on Ubisoft Montreal's unique answer to PUBG and Fortnite before it reaches the final stage of launch at some point in 2020. The title will also arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.
The ongoing beta features four game modes: Squad Crown Rush, Solo Crown Rush, Turbo Mode Squad, and Hack Runner Squad. Quite interestingly, the beta period introduces "a free 30-tier Battle Pass that, along with the in-game shop, offers up additional customization items for your contenders, along with weapons, drop pods, emotes, and more. All items earned in the Battle Pass or purchased from the store during the Open Beta will carry over across both PC and console when the game fully launches."
The current round of testing also sees the evolution of the free-to-play game's Twitch extension that gives Twitch users the truly original chance to influence the so-called "Viewer Events" — such as enabling infinite ammo and turning on low gravity — and simultaneously rank up and progress their own Battle Pass.
To learn more about Hyper Scape, take a closer look at its intense cinematic and overview trailer right now:
Hyper Scape is an urban futuristic free-to-play Battle Royale where 100 Contenders engage in FPS close-quarters and fast-paced matches to become the next global superstar. Fight your way through the 7 unique districts of Neo Arcadia, a virtual city featuring imposing landmarks that bring verticality to the next level. From sky-scraping towers to open plazas, from streets to rooftops, Neo Arcadia will push you to constantly adapt to your surroundings.
Hyper Scape's open beta is now available on PC (via Uplay); coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a later date.
