Check out the announcement trailer below:
Hyper Space entered open beta at the beginning of the month and is an urban futuristic battle royale. While following similar tropes of the genre such as a constantly shrinking zone and high player count, the developers have also incorporated some new ideas.
Aside from the arsenal of weapon pick-ups which is the norm for the genre, abilities can also be found across the map. These skills allow players to perform a range of moves such as turning into a giant ball to escape conflict or constructing a massive wall to block gun fire.
The game also incorporates a Twitch feature, which allows viewers on the streaming service to interact with the experience. Spectators can vote on in-game events such as unlimited ammo or low-gravity, or be invited to matches of Hyper Scape by creators via their streams.
In related Ubisoft news, the company recently hosted a presentation which announced many release dates for upcoming games such as Assassins Creed: Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion.
Far Cry 6 was also revealed and is set to feature Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito as the game’s main antagonist.
