Hyper Scape is a new first-person shooter battle royale game set in a futuristic, virtual battlefield. One hundred players are dropped into an arena to collect weapons and fight to be the last player or team standing. The arena shrinks over time, damaging anyone caught outside of the safe zone. So far, so standard battle royale.Hyper Scape differentiates itself from the other titles like Apex Legends and Call of Duty: Warzone through its Hacks and fusing. 

Hacks are powerful abilities that can be picked up around the map. By using Hacks, players can do things like launch high into the sky before slamming them down, spawn a large barrier wall, or encase themselves in bouncing, metal balls. They’re weird, wacky, and increase the pace of the game drastically.

Weapon fusing is a mechanic that allows you to upgrade your equipped weapons or Hacks any time you find a similar copy in the arena. This permanently improves aspects of the upgraded item, increasing things like magazine size and damage for weapons, or decreasing the cooldown of a Hack. As such, players grow stronger over the course of a match, and become able to unleash their powerful abilities more frequently during the final fights.

At the end of the match a crown spawns. If any player manages to collect the crown and hold it for 45 seconds, their team is automatically granted victory. It’s a system that livens up the final stages of a game, encouraging players to move and fight rather than holding back in the hopes of their opponents knocking one another out.
