Hyper Scape's Open Beta Adds New Mode

Written by on | OpenCritic

Hyper Scape's open beta received some additions, including a new mode. 

Hyper Scape is currently in the midst of an open beta, which has seen some additions. One of the bigger additions is the Crown Rush Solo Mode. The mode is similar to the Crown Rush Squad mode, but instead of players dropping into a match in teams of three, the new mode is a 100 player free-for-all. Crown Rush Solo Mode has the same features as the squad variant of the mode. However, when a player decides to go for the crown, they will have to defend themselves alone. 

A new weapon and Hack were also added to the Hyper Scape beta. The weapon is the Harpy, an SMG capable of doing a large amount of damage up close. The weapon does have a limited magazine at low fusion level, but does have a fast reload speed. The gun gains ammo capacity with each fusion, and extra damage at full fusion. The new Hack is called Shockwave. This Hack allows players to trigger a ranged AoE shockwave that propels players in all directions. Shockwave does less damage than Slam, but its ranged aspect opens new possibilities for players. Players can also send themselves flying into the air by aiming it at their feet. Shockwave is currently the fastest Hack in the beta, with a cooldown rate of 4 seconds at full fusion. 

A new Game Event has been added to the Hyper Scape beta as well. The Event is called Haste, and can be selected by Twitch Viewers watching a match. The Event increases the navigation speed of all Contenders for a short while, and is cumulative with other speed boosts given by Melee or any other ability, and will affect Echoed Players as well. Haste is viewer-exclusive, and can only be chosen by Viewers watching the match with the Crowncast extension.
