Ubisoft's upcoming battle royale title, Hyper Scape, will be seeing a full, formal launch in August.
Alongside the official release of the game, Hyper Scape Season 1 is kicking off next month with an event that will include a new Battle Pass with both free and premium tiers.
“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," Ubisoft states.
The game is currently available in open beta via Uplay on PC, which is scheduled to end on August 2 before the game fully launches on August 11.
On that date, Hyper Scape launches on PS4 and Xbox One, though at the time of writing there has been no word on whether Crossplay will be available between platforms.
“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.”
If you've been playing the game before now via the beta on Uplay, Ubisoft is going to reward you with a variety of perks once the full, free-to-play game is officially out.
“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.
“As the Open Beta period comes to an end, the development team wishes to thank players (even those who technically haven’t played yet) with the opportunity to earn 600 Bitcrowns, Hyper Scape’s premium in-game currency.
“All you have to do between now and the end of the Open Beta on August 2 is play the game or watch a Crowncast-enabled Twitch stream for just one hour.
“Hyper Scape is launching free-to-play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 11. Be sure to check out the finals of the Creators Cup on August 14 to watch the best of the best compete for their share of a $50,000 prize pool, and visit our Hyper Scape news hub to stay up to date.”
