Ubisoft intends to begin its second season of Hyper Scape early next week, according to a recent release. In doing so, the publisher will add more content to its urban battle royale experience, and change things up.
On October 6th, Hyper Scape Season 2 — which is dubbed ‘The Aftermath’ — will introduce a new weapon, a new hack, new game modes, a new Battle Pass and more to discover. An event will also occur two days prior (on October 4th), and it will allow players to participate in Project Tower.
NEW CONTENT COMING WITH SEASON 2
During this season, players will get the chance to discover a new district and try a new weapon, the Atrax, which bursts sticky explosives that detonate after a certain period of time. During the season will also come a new limited-time hack coming mid-season, Platform, which allows players to deploy a horizontal platform useful for navigation and offering new creative opportunities.
Over the course of Season 2 Hyper Scape will also offer several brand new game modes, including Crown Rush Duo and Floor is Lava. The Platform hack will be key for Floor is Lava, where the ground is transformed into a deadly magma. On top of those new modes, Season 2 will also see the return of Crown Rush, Faction War and Turbo Mode, with more to be revealed later in the season.
NEW GAME FEATURES
New for Season 2, a ranking system will be available, giving players a way to see how they fare amongst other contenders. The rank will be formed based on the ten best matches of each player – Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond or Champion. Only matches played in Crown Rush Squad will count for the rank.
As part of the rotating Limited-Timed Modes, Crown Rush Solo will be available during the Season with a new twist, Second Chance. Second Chance gives players the opportunity to redeploy into the battle when they are eliminated early in the game.
Starting with Season 2, players will get a Daily Gift every day they play Hyper Scape. The Daily Gift can include different items, such as Battle Points or cosmetics. A new 100-Tier free and premium Battle Pass will also be launched, including brand new exclusive Champion outfits, weapon skins, deployment pods and more.
Ubisoft has also partnered with Dark Horse Comics, to release the second issue of its Hyper Scape comic series.
