Those who play the beta or watch Hyper Scape on Twitch for at least an hour this weekend will earn 600 Bitcrowns (Hyper Scape’s in-game currency) when the game launches in August. Eligible livestreams must have the Crowncast extension enabled to count toward earning the reward. This bonus is available all weekend long until the open beta ends on August 2 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

Hyper Scape’s August release marks the debut of the game on consoles. Luckily, Hyper Scape supports cross-progression on all platforms where the game is available. This means that players who unlocked or bought cosmetic items during the beta will still have access to those items on console. This includes free Battle Pass rewards earned during the open beta.
Hyper Scape Season One will feature new weapons and hacks, as well as new limited-time game modes. The Season One Battle Pass will become available as well, offering both free and premium progression tracks with 100 tiers of unlockable rewards. The upgraded Battle Pass will cost you 950 Bitcrowns.
“While the game has already been accessible on PC since our first test phase, Season One is for us the true launch of Hyper Scape,” said Graeme Jennings, Senior Producer for Hyper Scape at Ubisoft Montréal. “We have leveraged our test periods to develop and release frequent updates, notably on the global balance. With those updates we are now ready to welcome console players into the mix, with lots of new content to enjoy.”
Hyper Scape is free-to-play and will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Uplay on August 11. Be sure to check back here for future game updates.
