Hyper Scape is the newest player to join the battle royale genre and has received a lot of attention since it was announced earlier this month. With a full release of the game set for later this summer on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, a lot of players are wondering if Hyper Scape will support cross-play. So, in this guide we are going to take a look at what we know about the game’s position on cross-platform play.
Does Hyper Scape Support Cross-Play?
At the time of writing, cross-play has not been confirmed for Hyper Scape, but in a Reddit AMA developers have stated that they are “looking closely at cross-play implementation.” Further, it has been confirmed that Hyper Scape will support cross-progression, which means you can hop on any of the three platforms and load into your account with all your stuff.
While it is disappointing that we can’t say for sure that Hyper Scape will have cross-play at launch, it’s nice to know that the developers are actively looking into it to try and see if they can make it happen. Further, with other battle royale games like Fortnite supporting cross platform play, it seems likely that Ubisoft will do everything in its power to make it happen. At the time of writing, we do not have a Hyper Scape release date, but we do know that it’s supposed to launch later this summer on consoles and PC.
If you’d like to try the game out ahead of launch, Ubisoft recently announced an open beta for those on PC. If you don’t have a gaming rig and are wondering if your PC can handle it, be sure to check out the recommended system requirements before you download the beta. If you’re able to try it out, all of your progression will be carried over to the game’s full launch later this year.
For those not familiar with the lore of the game, Hyper Scape takes place in the year 2054 in the fictional city of Neo-Arcadia. In this future timeline, the real world is a terrible place and most people spend their time in a virtual world created by a mega-company. In this VR world, the Hyper Scape is the prime event and has players fighting for a virtual crown. Unlike other battle royale games, towards the end of a match, a crown will drop into the match and any team that can possess it for 45 seconds will be crowned the champion, even if other teams are still alive.
While this game certainly sounds like fun to some, if you’re all battle royaled out, there are plenty of other games out there to play.
