Hyper Scape is an upcoming new Battle Royale game from Ubisoft. While not a ton is known about the game just yet, it appears to be set in a futuristic virtual world that will be launched both on PC and console (later in the year). It will include cross-play, so you will be able to play with friends on your PC or console, no matter what platform you decide to play on! We're taking a look at how you can sign up for the beta and get into either closed or open when they are launched.
Hyper Scape is supposed to be fully launched on July 12th. There will be a brief closed beta, which is supposed to only last a week or two. Most of this information has been found leaks by Slasher on Twitter, so it's possible that it will be changed.
Another interesting part about this game is that it's rumored that Ubisoft will be partnering with Twitch for high level integration. Twitch chat will be able to directly impact the game in someway, and streamers will get to share revenue from bit purchases. Streamers will also be able to open their squads up to invite subscribers into their game!
Another way to get into the beta is via Twitch Drops. You'll need to have a Twitch account, hook it up to your Ubisoft account, and then watch streams that have drops enabled. Make sure it says that they are enabled under the streamer's information or you won't get one. Some people will open up a ton of different streams at once in an attempt to increase their chances. However, Twitch says this will not increase your chances:
No, you will only be eligible to receive a drop for one active channel at a time. Watching more than one channel simultaneously will not result in more rewards.
So, you should only open up one stream so you don't burn up all of your bandwidth trying to have a bunch of tabs open!
How to Sign Up for Hyper Scape Beta
You can sign up for the Hyper Scape Beta by visiting the Prisma Dimensions website. There you will find a sign up button that requires you to have an Ubisoft account, but you can sign in with your Facebook, Xbox, Twitter, or PlayStation accounts as well. Once you sign up, you will get a confirmation email with the following details:
Prisma Dimensions is thrilled to bring you the first iteration of the Hyper Scape and with it, the pulse-pounding action of Crown Rush!
You are now registered for a chance to be the first to experience Hyper Scape.
Stay tuned and get ready for more news on July 2nd.
All there is to do now is wait and hope that you get picked! If not, it does seem like this game will be coming out relatively quickly. It is likely free-to-play, so you won't have to wait too long to get a chance to play it.
