About the Game : Hyper Scape
Hyper Scape is a much more futuristic-styled BR game. The game is set up in a sprawling urban city. The change from the usual barren landscapes and apocalyptic settings which were used by many current competitors. It has also changed the pace of the game to a bit more faster and more chaotic than what the players were previously used to.
Some of the streamers who were allowed to take the “technical test” told that Hyper Scape is a fun game. The game features a first person shooter type and not a third-person and is extremely polished. They said that the game offers some genuine innovations which cannot be seen in another BR game in the market.
The hero shooter Crucible by the Amazon Game Studios which had its own Battle Royale mode went out of the talk just after a month from its launch. But Ubisoft seems to have a much more established and a way better track record of the track. However, Hyper Scape still has to prove that when it is launched till the end of this year, it is unique enough and way lot fun. This will be pulling the players toward it who have given their hundreds of hours to titles such as Fortnite and Apex Legends.
Another factor that is bothering Ubisoft’s current situation is the complaints of sexual harassment attempts by high-ranking executive. The franchise has however promised to take care of the issue and completely overhaul the internal culture. Therefore, this makes a tough decision for the publisher to release a brand-new game.
