Hyper Scape is a free-to-play first-person shooter battle royale game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game is notable for its integration with video game live streamers which allows viewers on Twitch to affect the outcome of a match.
The game takes place in year 2054 in Neo-Arcadia, part of a metaverse created by the company Prisma Dimensions. Within this metaverse, players do battle with each other in a sport known as Crown Rush. The setting has been likened to that of The Oasis found in Ready Player One.
The game's main mode shares elements with other battle royale games, where up to 100 players are dropped on to a map that slowly shrinks over time with players seeking to eliminate the competition. The game however differs in that once the last sector closes a crown appears, any player that is able to hold on to the crown for 45 seconds is automatically declared the winner. Alternatively the game also ends when only one player or team remains. Throughout the game, players can find both weapons as well as special abilities known as "Hacks," such as letting the player transform into a giant ball from which they can bounce around, or letting them become invisible. Players can only have two weapons and hacks available at a time, although each item can be swapped out during a round. When a player is killed in the squad game mode, they become an "Echo". While Echos can't kill any opponents they are able to "ping" other members of their team to alert them to dangers or points of interest. When an enemy is killed, they drop a revive point which allows a team to respawn fallen teammates.
The open beta for Microsoft Windows was released on July 12, 2020. The game was released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 11, 2020.
