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 marks the launch of Hyper Scape on consoles.
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.
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.
