Hyper Scape devs tease possibility of new movement mechanics

Ubisoft’s new battle royale Hyper Scape already features a ton of movement mechanics. However, the developers are open to adding more, teasing the possibility of future Hacks and basic abilities revolving around movement.

Hyper Scape already has an intense focus on mobility. Players vault through the air with ease, performing double jumps to get from rooftop-to-rooftop. There’s a “low gravity mode” that can be activated in-game.

That’s not to mention the Hacks you can pick up to give you special abilities. The Slam Hack can help you launch right on top of enemies, while Invisibility is handy for repositioning in clutch moments. There’s also a short-distance Teleport.

Hyper Scape is extremely fast-paced compared to other battle royales thanks to a plethora of movement abilities.

While there’s plenty of ways to get around Neo Arcadia as is, Hyper Scape players have been left wanting more. Just a couple of days into the beta, players are launching ideas at the devs left right and centre.

From wall running, to speed boosts, or even giving players more “jumps” while in mid-air, it seems the community loves the mobility in Hyper Scape and want the devs to add more. Ubisoft are listening though, and they’ve hinted at the possibility of fulfilling their wishes.

In a Reddit AMA on July 3, the Hyper Scape devs admitted that they don’t have any plans in the works in regards to adding more mobility.

“We don’t currently have plans for wall running as we have focused our mobility and traversal on the double jumps and hacks you currently see in the game,” one of the developers said.

However, they did leave the door ajar, saying they were monitoring community feedback for any new inclusions to the game. During the Technical Test, this includes new movement abilities, like wall-running.

“We are monitoring feedback [and] keeping our minds open for ideas like [this] in the future,” they added.

Given the very early stage the game is in, the devs will be all ears to any feedback possible. Perhaps before the game goes through its full launch later this year more Hacks with movement will be added.

Funny Apex Legends easter egg found in Hyper Scape

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.
