Hyper Scape’s first official season, The First Principle, has begun, as the game rolls out on consoles as well as PC, and brings with it the Season 1 battle pass.

For PS4 and Xbox One players, this is your first chance to experience Ubisoft’s Battle Royale. Also, cross-progression is available, so you will retain your progress regardless of your platform of choice.

Cross-play will be coming to Hyper Scape at a later date too, and Ubisoft have confirmed that it will be optional when it does launch.

There’s also a new weapon in this update, namely the Dragonfly, a silenced, semi-auto precision rifle, the 11th weapon in the game. Plus, a new hack called ‘Magnet’ which will “attract and trap enemies caught in its area of effect.”

Season 1 Battle Pass

Just like Fortnite and Warzone, the Hyper Scape battle pass features 100 tiers to progress through, unlocking exclusive cosmetics along the way.

The in-game shop will also offer more content to purchase straight away, with brand new content as well as a selection of items returning from the Open Beta shop.

Also, if you’re interested in the lore of the Hyper Scape world, you can find Memory Shards – narrative collectibles which contain an image and lore fragment.

Streamer mode

The developers have also heard the pleas of streamers and are adding more protection in for those who want to broadcast their gameplay. You can already anonymize enemy players’ names, but starting with Season 1, you can also anonymize your own name, to stop those pesky stream snipers.

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.
