Yet another battle royale enters the arena soon with the launch of Hyper Scape


August 11

A battle royale meets Ready Player One: what could go wrong? Make sure you drive backward during your first race! It’s a pro-tip only a true unflawedErnest Cline stand-in could understand.

Yes, Ubisoft’sHyper Scape is out and about thanks to a very messy and quick reveal campaign, but it’s actually going to be out, out on August 11. The news comes by way of this season one announcement trailer below, which showcases some gameplay and reminds us of the inevitable 100-tier battle pass.

Cringey setting aside, I’ll give Hyper Scapea try because battle royales aren’t inherently bad; so long as the studio isn’t slapping it together to make a quick buck.
