Over the past few years, the Battle Royale genre has cropped up from almost nothing into one of the biggest genres of multiplayer gaming. Games like PUBG, Call of Duty Warzone and several others have pushed this genre to new heights.
One gaming company that hadn't jumped on the BR bandwagon yet was Ubisoft. Now, ahead of their Ubisoft Forward event, the company has announced that they will release a futuristic BR game called Hyper Scape.
Previews and gameplay footage will be out soon
Like Riot Games' Valorant, Ubisoft will first announce a closed beta run for the game. During this time, many streamers and YouTubers will have access to the game.
They can release gameplay footage and give previews to thier audiences. Additionally, this will also allow Ubisoft to iron out whatever issues that might crop up in the closed beta.
Hyper Scape is a sci-fi Battle Royale FPS set in a futuristic virtual world. Ubisoft will release this game on both PC and consoles. The game is also expected to support crossplay across platforms. The game is set to enter closed beta next week. The full launch of the game is set to be on the 12th of July.
Interestingly, Ubisoft is building this game with streamers in mind. This game will have a full partnership with Twitch. Ubisoft will integrate Twitch into the game in levels that they claim have never been seen before with a big game.
Ubisoft is known to deliver interesting games over the years. With this new battle royale, it will be expanding its horizons into a new gameplay structure. Hyper Scape just might be the thing that they need to get back up and reignite their flame.
