The latest rival to Fortnite and Apex Legends is allegedly be set in a futuristic virtual world and is a fast-paced FPS multiplayer shooter. It’s rumoured Ubisoft Montreal (Rainbow Six Siege) are the developers behind Hyper Scape, which is believed to be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One as well as PCs.
Like with Apex Legends and Valorant, it has been claimed streamers have got an early sneak peek of Hyper Scape ahead of its launch.
And there will be a big promotional campaign on Twitch ahead of the full rollout of Hyper Scape.
The news comes courtesy of eSports insider Rod Breslau, who said Hyper Scape is getting teased today by Ubisoft with a closed beta following.
Breslau also claimed that the Hyper Scape launch will be next week on July 12.
In a series of tweets the @Slasher Twitter posted: “Sources: today Ubisoft will tease a new game code-named “Prisma Dimensions”, which is actually a new AAA multiplayer fast-paced FPS Battle Royale from Ubisoft Montreal (R6, AC) named Hyper Scape.
“Sources: Hyper Scape is a free to play BR FPS set in a futuristic virtual world for both PC and consoles with the console launch coming later this year including crossplay. Hyper Scape goes into closed beta next week with open beta and full launch of the game on July 12th.
“Sources: Hyper Scape is being built with streamers in mind in a full partnership with Twitch with never seen levels of integration from a big game before. Twitch chat will among other things be able to directly impact the game live with game-changing events.
“Much like the launches of Valorant and Apex Legends, Ubisoft has invited hundreds of streamers, pro gamers, and youtubers to get a first look at the game. they (and likely games press too) will be releasing the first gameplay footage under embargo later this week.”
It looks like Hyper Scape could be launching alongside the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event.
The E3-style press conference is scheduled to take place on July 12, the same day that Hyper Scape is rumoured to be launching.
Here is what Ubisoft has said about the upcoming event: “With physical gaming shows around the world postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ubisoft will be hosting its first digital conference, called Ubisoft Forward, on July 12 at 12PM PDT/9PM CEST. Get ready for an E3-style showcase with plenty of exclusive game news, exciting reveals, and much more.”
It’s likely we’ll see more on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla during the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event.
News on Watch Dogs Legion and the next Rainbow Six game also seems likely.
