The developers behind the new battle royale game Hyper Scape dropped plenty of teasers about new features coming and a possible Switch version during a recent Reddit AMA.

Hyper Scape is somewhat of a mixed bag. While the game doesn’t exactly have the stardom and standout power of other battle royale games (at least right now), there’s no denying that there’s still a passionate fanbase backing the game that wants it to succeed.

Because of this, it’s no surprise developers decided to hold a Reddit AMA in order to answer any questions that fans have so far. While most of the questions seemed to be focused more on behind-the-scenes subjects, there were a couple of good hints at the future of Hyper Scape.

Ubisoft
Members of the Hyper Scape development team confirmed a number of interesting details about the future of the FPS.

First, devs confirmed that they’re working on and/or looking into a wider variety of modes for the first-person shooter, with Duos and Team Deathmatch being specifically named. While there was no release date given for either mode, the former was confirmed to be coming “soon”.

In addition to the new modes, the developers also confirmed that cross-play, a feature that’s been highly anticipated for a while now, is coming sometime before the end of the year. It might not be the concrete date that fans were hoping for, but it’s the most defined timeframe that we’ve gotten so far.

Finally, one of the more notable answers came when a user asked about the possibility of a Nintendo Switch version of Hyper Scape. While the developers didn’t outright say that one is being worked on, they did hint at it.

Reddit
During the Reddit AMA, the Ubisoft developers hinted that a Switch version of Hyper Scape might be in the works.

“Wouldn’t this game be awesome on Switch?” Jean-Christophe Guyot, the creative director of the game, said. “I love the Switch.”

This is the first time we’ve ever heard anything about a possible Switch version of Hyperscape, though it shouldn’t really be a surprise if it does happen. The console is one of the most popular on the market right now, and studios have been slowly but consistently porting games to it over the past year or so.

All in all, it seems like a great time to be a Hyper Scape fan. With all the upcoming game modes, story additions, and the possibility of a Switch version, it seems like things are looking up for the game in the near future.

Hawk-eyed Hyper Scape players have discovered a funny Apex Legends easter egg in Ubisoft’s latest entry to the battle royale genre, Hyperscape.

Hyperscape released on July 12, 2020, capitalizing on the booming battle royale market since the likes of Fortnite, Apex and Warzone took over the gaming world.

While it may not have yet reached the dizzying heights of the aforementioned games, players are still having a lot of fun with its unique take on the genre, notable for its integration with Twitch that allows viewers to affect the outcome of a match.

Hyper Scape has been somewhat of a success for Ubisoft.

Hyper Scape and Apex are somewhat similar in their futuristic gameplay and action, and although most players have picked a side by this point, Ubisoft has left a little message in the game to Apex players and a nod to their competition over at Respawn.

If you’re an Apex Legends player, you’ll know the incredibly frustrating call of “Mozambique here,” the game trolling you as it tries to convince you to take the Mozambique shotgun.

Obviously, the Mozambique is one of the least popular weapons in the game. It’s not very powerful and is just about the last weapon you want to have to carry after you land — and it looks like that’s something the Hyper Scape developers are well aware of.

While traversing Hyper Scape’s Neo Arcadia map, Redditor imBrettValentine found a little note perched on a desk with just two words written on it: “Mozambique here!”

Obviously, there is no Mozambique shotgun in Hyper Scape, so is clearly a nod to its competitor — and is a pretty funny one at that.

For players who have made Hyper Scape their main game, this might have triggered some unwanted flashbacks, but it does raise the question of whether there are even more undiscovered easter eggs in the game.
