After eager anticipation for the official announcement, Ubisoft has confirmed that Hyper Scape Season 1 will be arriving next month and that it’ll be coming to consoles on the same day.

Back in early July 2020, Ubisoft announced their answer to the battle royale genre: Hyper Scape. The game was pretty popular on Twitch and caught the public’s eye. At the time, however, the title was only available on PC.

This led to many wondering when it would come to consoles. After rumors and speculation, Ubisoft confirmed during its Forward event that the game would be coming to console “later in the summer,” disappointing many who either don’t own a PC or just wanted to play on their PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

It seems, however, that said disappointment was only temporary, as Ubisoft has not only revealed that Season 1 of Hyper Scape will be coming on August 11 but that it’ll be coming to consoles as well.

According to Ubisoft, the new season will include the usual suspects: new features and new modes for players to jump into. In addition, there will also be a new 100-tier battle pass for players to earn while either playing the game or watching Hyper Scape streams on Twitch.

The new season is also set to bring a new gun and a new hack to the game, however, as of the time of this writing, we don’t actually know the specifics about these new features. With only 10 weapons currently in the game and a very limited number of each type, it’s nice to see Ubisoft continuously changing up the gameplay so that it doesn’t get stale.

The developer also confirmed that the current open beta for the game, which is only available on PC, is set to end on August 2, 2020.

All in all, however, the biggest news is the console release. Giving fans more ways to play is always a good thing, even if it takes a while to get there.

It will be interesting to see how much Season 1 and the new console releases help Hyper Scape. While it would be unfair to call the game dead, it’s certainly lost some of the popularity that it had earned when it first came out.

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.
