Since being announced last month, Ubisoft’s Hyper Scape has been one of the most talked-about games in the battle royale genre. Now, the game has launched, and everyone can jump into Neo Arcadia.
Ubisoft’s take on the battle royale genre is getting positive reviews so far. Hyper Scape does enough to differentiate itself from the likes of Apex Legends, Fornite, and other giants in the genre. Here are a few tips for those who are just starting in the game.
One of the key features in the game are special abilities called Hacks. Players can pick these up around Neo Arcadia. There are several Hacks in the game, and each of these provides something unique. Before jumping into the game, players should learn more about these hacks.
Most notably, they should understand how each can be used and how each can be used against them.
Focus on a loadout and upgrade
Upgrading Hacks and even loot comes differently in the game. If players pick up a certain weapon, for instance, the only way they can upgrade it is by picking up something similar. As such, it’s important for players to focus on a single loadout instead of swapping weapons several times during a match.
Defend the high ground
Neo Arcadia in Hyper Scape is vertically large. There are a ton of tall buildings that players could take to and hideout in. Using the Hacks in the game, players should try and get to the high ground. This puts them at an advantage over those below. Getting to the high ground is not easy, however, as some areas are only accessible by landing on them from the get-go, or by using one of the Hacks.
Build up first
Before players engage in firefights, it’s a must for them to upgrade their loadouts first. By having upgraded weapons and Hacks, players are going to get a significant advantage over the competition early on. Engaging in team fights from the get-go isn’t ideal as players could come across others who have already upgraded their loadouts.
Hyper Scape is now out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It’s a free-to-play battle royale from Ubisoft. The developer is undoubtedly jumping into a competitive genre, but it seems like the game is holding out for now. Fans are hoping that more content will be added in the future.
