Hyper Scape launched a few months back, and its player base has dropped significantly. Moving forward, Ubisoft is revealing its plans for the game as they still want to make sure that it reaches its full potential in the future.
Hyper Scape launched back in July as a highly anticipated title from Ubisoft. Despite the hype, the game’s player base died down shortly after. Now, it takes quite a while to find a match in the shooter. Instead of backing out of the genre, Ubisoft is taking the high road and will revamp the game.
Like ‘Rainbow Six Siege’
Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege is a far cry from the current state of the battle royale. To make the development process for the game much easier, Ubisoft is planning to take a well-planned approach for the changes. Like in Rainbow Six Siege, they are going to approach the development process step-by-step while focusing on core gameplay aspects.
For Hyper Scape, Ubisoft’s plans have been broken down into Combat Comfort, Onboarding, Game Modes, Player Goals, and Cross-Play.
For Combat Comfort, Ubisoft is hoping to balance the game. According to their data, the game’s skill ceiling is too high. This makes the game difficult for newcomers. The problem becomes harder on consoles as aiming and tracking becomes much tougher.
Onboarding is related to Combat Comfort, as this is about helping new players adjust to the game. Ubisoft knows that they’ll need to protect newcomers and give them the right training materials to enjoy the game eventually.
Game Modes means Ubisoft is planning to release more ways to enjoy the game. Crown Rush is the current mode, and even Ubisoft believes it can be too unforgiving at times. Ubisoft is also thinking about adding limited-time modes eventually.
Players Goals, on the other hand, refers to ensuring that players will stick long enough to the game during a season. In Season 2, they introduced a Ranking System that brings progression to the game.
Lastly, Ubisoft is hoping to address the game’s current problems with lobby size by adding cross-play. The feature has always been intended for the game, but Ubisoft is still trying to make it so that it doesn’t affect the core experience of everyone.
Hyper Scape is far from being a perfect game, but the good thing is that Ubisoft is going to continue to support it. It does have a lot of potentials to be able to rise along with other battle royale giants. However, it might take a considerable amount of time before Ubisoft completely fixes all things wrong with the title.
