It appears that Ubisoft are on the cusp of revealing a brand new AAA first-person shooter battle royale, according to Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau. 

The game developers have masterminded the success of some of the biggest franchises in recent times, including the Tom Clancy series, Assassin’s Creed, and many others.

However, it appears something completely news is the next thing on the menu for players, and it’s going to be called Hyper Scape according to reports.

Ubisoft has had tremendous success with Rainbow Six, but it looks like another FPS game is in the works, too.

Esports journalist Slasher posted details about the next addition to the world of battle royale on June 29, tweeting details from his account. In the days previous, he had been heralded as the key source of information for all things Dr Disrespect, following the Twitch star’s mysterious ban on the streaming platform. 

This time, though, a fresh game is on the agenda.

He tweeted: “Today Ubisoft will tease a new game code-named “Prisma Dimensions”, which is actually a new AAA multiplayer fast-paced FPS Battle Royale from Ubisoft Montreal (R6, AC) named Hyper Scape.”

Slasher replied with a follow up tweet, claiming it will be free-to-play. A release date of July 12 has also been mentioned, along with a timeframe for the closed beta.

Ubisoft are yet to have confirmed the project officially, at the time of writing, although others have been quick to comment on the matter – including Sir Scoots.

Right after the news broke, he posted: “Wrong leak. Leak stock at record low.” Quite possibly, this was in jest, and we’ll soon find out by the looks of things which one is accurate.

Aside from those initial details, Breslau also said the following about the new project: “Hyper Scape is being built with streamers in mind in a full partnership with Twitch with never seen levels of integration from a big game before. Twitch chat will among other things be able to directly impact the game live with game-changing events.”

As soon as we hear more in terms of confirmed details, we’ll be the first to let you know.


Smash YouTubers claim Nintendo is copyright striking all videos with mods

Nintendo hasn’t backed down in its war against the Super Smash Bros. community. Now they’ve started issuing takedown notices to some of the game’s most popular modders on YouTube. 

Nintendo has always cracked down hard on its intellectual property. However, they’ve found themselves at odds against the Super Smash Bros. community more so than ever since they shut down The Big House’s online event

It started a movement that has seen professional players and community members rally their fans to fight, protest with charity tournaments, and host exhibition bouts to raise awareness.

Unfortunately, it hasn’t stopped Nintendo from slowing down. If anything, they’ve cracked the whip even harder and turned their sights on Super Smash Bros. modders creating projects for fans on YouTube.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Takedown Mods
Super Ultimate is already incredibly fun, but modders have found ways to make it even better.

The first modder to report he’d been issued a takedown notice was a prominent one named Mastalko.

He created a Goku skin mod, which replaces Terry on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. “Guess my Goku video got ninjaed by Nintendo,” he said.

The screenshot clarifies that his video has been “locked and cannot be monetized” due to a claim from Nintendo.

However, that was only the beginning. Nintendo issued a takedown notice to another popular modder named 64iOS. It revolved around a video he posted on YouTube called ‘12 Super Mario Odyssey Skins in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! (Mods).’

“First time happening to my channel with Smash, I believe,” he said, above a screenshot of the actual takedown notice. Fortunately, it hasn’t impacted his account, but it’s still a move that has angered many fans.

The Super Smash Bros. community understands Nintendo’s takedown requests to an extent.

However, they believe Nintendo’s antics are tone-deaf, especially considering how passionate and widespread the community is.

In the end, they’ve had to find ways to keep the community thriving after all these years with little to no support from Nintendo. So, they believe the company should work with them rather than against them.
