The developers have identified five areas where they want to make improvements over the coming months.
The battle royale genre has moved from strength to strength these past few years, and has seen all the major publishers in the industry trying to claim a slice of the pie with their own take on the popular style of game. Recently, Ubisoft threw their own sci-fi-styled hat into the ring with Hyper Scape, which went into beta in July, and then launched in full just a month later.
Its launch, however, didn’t exactly go number. No matter what mtric you go by – whether that’s audience reception, critical reception, Twitch numbers, or anything else – the game has faded away into the background rather quickly- and its developers agree that things could have gone much better.
In a new update, Ubisoft said with Hyper Scape, they “were not able to achieve the high expectations we set for ourselves with our full release.” Going forward, they want to turn the shooter into a game “everyone can play and enjoy”, and as such, have identified five key improvements that they want to make, from making the game more accessible to adding more game modes to enabling cross-play and more. Read about those below, in their own words:
Regardless of how invested (or not) you may be in Hyper Scape and how it does, it’s good to see a developer recognizing their game’s flaws so quickly and then actually being able to work on them. Here’s hoping this actually leads to some meaningful improvements in the not-too-distant future.
Hyper Scape is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can read our review of the game through here.
