PC gamers are the first to get access to the new Hyper Scape open beta, with PS4 and Xbox One release news expected in the coming month. As announced today by the Battle Royale shooter’s development team, the Hyper Scape open beta has now started on Uplay. This is currently the only platform gamers can experience the new game, although a console release is also being planned for 2020. While no set date has been confirmed, Hyper Scape looks set to become playable on PS4 and Xbox One sometime in August.
Players heading to the official Hyper Scape website will notice that the page sharing news on the new open beta currently only has PC listed.
However, there is plenty of room for other platforms to be added in the future, which is great news for PS4 and Xbox One gamers.
The process of finding the new Hyper Scape Open Beta on PC should be easy and will include downloading Uplay and selecting Hyper Scape from the menu.
You will also need to visit the official Hyper Scape website, which allows you to add the game to your library.
Gamers hoping to join in on the new Hype Scape test will need to download Uplay, which weighs in at around 100MB.
You will also need to make sure you have an account, and if you don’t, this will mean filling up a sign up form and including an email address.
Hyper Scape will require around 8.6GB of room on your PC and may require more when new updates are released.

More information regarding today’s Hyper Scape Open Beta release can be found below:
“We know some were not able to participate, the doors to the Hub are now open to PC players in even more countries! And with new players, comes new features for even more action-packed gameplay.”
NEW WEAPONS DEPLOYED
First, Prisma Dimensions has deployed the HARPY throughout Neo Arcadia. The Harpy is an SMG-based weapon that excels in close-to-mid-quarters combat. Use it to your advantage to quickly eliminate any opponents who are bringing the pressure.
Your weapon arsenal isn’t the only thing that has been upgraded. You will now also find the SHOCKWAVE HACK. Shockwave is a powerful AOE blast that can be used to push away rival Contenders and give you some extra breathing room while you secure the Crown.
NEW STREAMING FEATURES
- The Hyper Scape CROWNCAST is also being upgraded! Our Twitch extension experience will now include two new features and a new way to shake up matches-in-progress:
- You can now progress your Battle Pass by watching a streamer with CrownCast activated for up to 2 tiers a day.
- Streamers can now directly (and easily) invite their viewers into their squad!
- A new event has been added—Haste—that increases the game’s speed for all Contenders.
FOUR GAME MODES IN THE OPEN BETA
Additionally, the Open Beta will feature four game modes. CROWN RUSH SQUAD is returning with a permanent CROWN RUSH SOLO mode. Crown Rush Solo has the same showdown rules as the Squad variation, except everyone is fighting for themselves. There will also be two additional Limited Time Modes to discover soon: HACK RUNNER SQUAD, and TURBO MODE SQUAD.
Be sure to keep an eye out for more information on these Limited Time Modes!
THE HYPER SCAPE IN-GAME SHOP
We are also opening the in-game shop for cosmetic-only purchases, purchasable with BITCROWNS. You can purchase Bitcrowns through the Uplay Store and unlock new cosmetics!
