Ubisoft Montréal has unveiled Hyper Scape as of today, which borrows the aesthetics of the ever-growing cyberpunk genre while taking Apex Legends‘ gameplay and mashing the two together to make up yet another uninspired battle royale game for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
As one would expect, Hyper Scape brings the usual battle royale stuff to the table while focusing on typical current year propaganda. Although no character bios are out right now, they’ll likely be bisexual and gay characters running around like there’s no tomorrow.
In the meantime, Ubisoft Montréal pulled an Apex Legends stunt where at 12:00 P.M. ET the game effectively went live via a free technical test phase, where several high profile streamers on Twitch and YouTube were permitted to start streaming the game so that it could become the top viewed game on Twitch 30 minutes after its reveal.
In other words, its growth was artificially founded, much like Apex Legends, and wasn’t earned through actual blood, sweat, or tears. With that said, you can check out the latest gameplay trailer for Hyper Scape right here:
Moreover, Hyper Scape sees 100 players fighting their way through seven districts of Neo Arcadia, in which the virtual city is filled with landmarks and vertical spaces for “intense” interactions. And like any other battle royale game, “the Blight” will actively dissolve Neo Arcadia’s (one km by one km) districts in each match for “varied gameplay.”
Here’s a gameplay overview for your viewing pleasure:
And lastly, you can listen to the devs spew the usual word salad to promote Hyper Scape right here:
If you don’t know, the same team behind Rainbow Six and Assassin’s Creed are working on this new game, as mentioned in the above video. In other words, the leaks that went live on June 30th were spot on in that the devs are now confirming said leaks.
Although Hyper Scape has no official release date, the game can be played right now across PC, PS4, and Xbox One for free as per ubisoft.com. It should be noted that this free test phase is limited to folks that live in North America and Europe.
