    Yet another company jumps on the battle royale hype train as Ubisoft announces Hyper Scape. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the company describes its free-to-play game as an "an intense, vertical and fast-paced battle royale experience". Hyper Scape takes place in 2054, where up to 100 Contenders face each other in the virtual city of Neo-Arcadia to determine the next champion. Three-player squads and solo players engage in these firefights, quickly transitioning from narrow streets to open rooftops and deadly interiors.


    For those interested, a limited-time PC Technical Test in North America and Europe will offer the opportunity to play the game as from the 2nd-7th July by watching Twitch streams and earning Drops. The list of relevant streams is available here.

    Ah yes, just what we need. Another fucking one.
    Are people really interested in this? I've personally never given two fucks about anything royale but how many can there possibly be in such a short time?

    Are the words "Battle Royale" a trend? Can games exist without these words? Throw it away. We have already games like this.

    Just like the past trend "Cube/Voxel Minecraft like, Moba, Survival, Sandbox, Zombie, etc.."
    don't forget to mention the Uplay cash-shop for Skins, Weapons etc..

    Wow! A battle royale that's a first person shooter! What a novel idea that hasn't been done before!

    They want a slice of pie of Cyberpunk 2033's hype train, I guess.

    I don't get all this hate. It's like people throw up when they see "Battle Royale" on anything for no reason. Have any of you watched the trailer? It looks cool. We don't really have any futuristic Battle Royale games, so this seems like it would do well. Looks like lots of fun.

    It was about time we have a BR in an urban setting. It looks cool,and being F2P, I don't see any reason to all the hate.

    The problem is battle royale games are too saturated. I personally played Fortnite , Apex, and even NInjala on the switch and nothing is new here. Killzone had a free for all death match (battle royale) and this was back in 2004. Sure it fun but not everyone want to play multi-player.

    The gaming world lost originality since nowadays they wanna squeeze multi-player in almost every game.

    This looks like a blast. Seems like the game will merge the good aspects of some of the top BR's while adding a little flare of its own. With the price of admission being zero it would be silly not to try, I'll definitely give this a spin.

    Dude. They literally say its BR only. If it's not your kind of game, then you don't play it, instead of hate on it. You hate on a game if they claim it's something it isn't. This is exactly what they claim it is.

    I'm not hating on the game I'm just saying there are tons of copies of this game that are already out there. I'm just saying gaming lack innovation.

    Sure, but the games you've mentioned are very different from each other. Apex plays nothing like Fortnite - one is heavily reliant on skill-based mechanics and team cohesion (like Overwatch, except in BR format) whereas the other relies on building (like Minecraft, except a BR). Even the perspective isn't the same - one is first person, the other third person. When people say stuff like this it always comes across as "I've played Doom before, I don't need to play any other shooter ever".

    I understand what you are saying but we are swarmed with many games like this. Long time ago people complained how COD released a game each year but they praise Battle Royale games (when they are the same thing)

    I guess because it is free to play :wacko:

    Another one? And isn't Ubisoft terribly late to this game?
