The release lineup of next-gen consoles has grown by one title. As Ubisoft have confirmed, the Battle Royale shooter Hyper Scape will be released as a launch title for both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X.

Hyper Scape will be a launch title for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. While Sony and Microsoft are still covering the list of games that will be released with the next-gen consoles, Ubisoft has already confirmed the new Battle Royale shooter.

This is what makes it different.

Hyper Scape for PS5 and Xbox Series X

As Ubisoft Creative Director for Hyper Scape Jean-Christophe Guyot revealed in an interview, console gamers will be able to plunge into the Battle Royale shooter when the PS5 and Xbox Series X are released.

Hyper Scape, which only started an open beta test on the PC at the beginning of July, is scheduled for release as early as summer 2020 for PC and the two current consoles. According to Guyot, fans should not expect many technical improvements from the next-gen version for the time being:

Hyper Scape will [be] playable on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 right at the launch of the new consoles, in the same version as the one available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. We are currently looking into developing specific features and performances for next-gen. With the fast pace of the game we always prioritize responsiveness and framerate.

According to Ubisoft, the focus of Hyper Scape's fast gameplay is on the responsiveness and frame rate of the shooter. Hyper Scape is currently in open beta only for the PC while the open beta for PS4 and Xbox One should be released in the near future. Cross-play for the shooter has also already been confirmed.

The game is a free Battle Royale shooter from Ubisoft, set in the distant future of 2054. A special feature of the game are the hacks, which provide special abilities and can be collected on the map.
