The game will apparently be free to play for both PC and consoles, with crossplay functionality. The thread also notes that the game is set to enter a closed beta period next week, with a full launch planned on July 12." - Rod "Slasher" Breslau
With the Ubisoft digital summer showcase planned for July 12, fans can expect the game to be released then. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Hyper Scape will be set in a futuristic city. However, not much gameplay detail is currently available apart from the Twitch integration.
A lot more information regarding the game's concept art came in the way of tweets by Twitch streamer FFearFFull and was later retweeted by Ubisoft's official middle-east account.
The art for Hyper Scape indicates a futuristic neon-drenched city that will be the location for the battle royale to take place. More information is likely to come along later today as Ubisoft will make a formal announcement regarding the game.
