Ubisoft’s first “Ubisoft Forward” presentation has ended, but not before an announcement about Hyper Scape was revealed. After a successful technical test last week, the battle royale is now in open beta on PCs. Players can download the beta through the Uplay application for no cost at all. In regards to the console community, the beta should arrive sometime in August 2020, if leaks are to be believed. The PC beta introduces some additional game modes, a new Hack and weapon, and a backstory for the game. Let’s see what you can expect when you launch the Hyper Scape open beta.
Hyper Scape open beta begins
Prior to the Ubisoft Forward presentation, a leak from an insider suggested that a beta would be announced. That turned out to be accurate, as players can download it right now. There’s currently no known end date for the beta, though. However, if the reports of the game coming to consoles are accurate, we could possibly see the beta last for months.
The Hyper Scape is waiting.
