Hyper Scape Comes to PS4 and Xbox One on August 11
Hyper Scape Season 1 officially begins in just a few short weeks, and it'll bring with it a new launch on consoles as well.
After hitting PC in a beta iteration just a few weeks back, Ubisoft’s new foray into the battle royale genre, Hyper Scape, now has an official launch date for consoles.
Revealed over on Ubisoft’s website, Hyper Scape is set to now exit its beta phase and will kick off its first season of content on August 11. At this point, the game will become free-to-play on not only PC, but PS4 and Xbox One as well. Meanwhile, the current beta for Hyper Scape on PC will be coming to an end on August 2. That said, all progression made in this beta phase will then carry over to the full release.
Hyper Scape Season 1 starts August 11!
Our first season introduces a new weapon, a new hack, new limited-time game modes, a 100-tier Battle Pass, and more.

As far as what Season 1 will boast, one new gun called the Dragonfly, and a new hack called Magnet, are said to be added to the game. Additionally, new limited-time game modes will begin releasing and a free 100-tie battle pass will also be given to all players who hop into Hyper Scape. And thanks to how the game is constructed, merely watching streams of other people play Hyper Scape can help you progress on your own battle pass, too.
All in all, it’ll be interesting to see how Hyper Scape performs when it fully releases. In my own estimation, the game is doing enough that is different from its competitors in Fortnite and Apex Legends that it might be able to find a solid player base. While that remains to be seen, at least those across all platforms will now be able to give Hyper Scape a go in just a few short days.
