Ubisoft is launching its latest team shooter this week, and it looks like there’s plenty of interest surrounding the Hyper Scape release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC. While still a new product, the development team have already run an open beta for the Battle Royale game on PC, offering an early look at gameplay. Since then, the beta has been shut down and now gamers who enjoyed the initial experience just have a few hours to wait until the full experience arrives.
HYPER SCAPE RELEASE DATE AND LAUNCH TIMES NEWS
The Hyper Scape release date has been set for Tuesday, August 11, across PS4, Xbox One and PC.
So while only PC players could enjoy the open beta, the full Hyper Scape launch will be available on a number of leading platforms.
The only downside to today’s release is that Ubisoft hasn’t provided much in the way of when the game will be available to play.
From what has been shared so far, the Hyper Scape release time has been set for around 9am EST in the United States, or 2pm BST, if you live in the UK.
There doesn’t appear to be a way to pre-load the yet on consoles, meaning that will be an extra step to complete on launch day.
It’s unclear if Ubisoft will be launching Hyper Scape after the usual PlayStation Store update or not, so gamers will want to keep an eye out for the latest news shared on the game’s official social media pages.
WILL HYPER SCAPE SUPPORT CROSSPLAY DURING SEASON 1?
August 11 will see the launch of Hyper Scape Season 1, which will contain new content and a fresh Battle Pass to unlock.
It will also feature cross-progression, meaning gamers will be able to use one account to play the game across PS4, Xbox One and PC.
All your items will stay locked to that one account, but it doesn’t look like Hyper Scape Cross-Play will be available in August.
According to Ubisoft Cross-play will be available in a later season of Hyper Scape, so there’s no release window for the feature yet.
A further guide on this week’s Hyper Scape release day launch can be found below, courtesy of Ubisoft:
“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.”
