Hyper Scape Open Beta Starts Now

The Hyper Scape Open Beta is live! PC players around the world can download and play the fast-paced sci-fi multiplayer shooter right now. Following last week’s PC Technical Test, the Open Beta will introduce new features to Hyper Scape, including a new submachine gun (Harpy) and hack (Shockwave), as well as a new free 30-tier Battle Pass, additional game modes, and new Twitch functionality for streamers and viewers.

In addition to Squad Crown Rush, the Open Beta will also feature Solo Crown Rush as well as two additional limited time game modes—Turbo Mode Squad and Hack Runner Squad.

The Open Beta period will feature a free 30-tier Battle Pass that, along with the in-game shop, offers up additional customization items for your contenders, along with weapons, drop pods, emotes, and more. All items earned in the Battle Pass or purchased from the store during the Open Beta will carry over across both PC and console when the game fully launches.

Hyper Scape’s Open Beta will also see the evolution of the Crowncast Twitch extension. Not only will players be able to influence Viewer Events through voting, but they’ll now be able to rank up and progress their own Battle Pass just by watching streamers using Crowncast. And for streamers, squad invites allows you to invite viewers from Twitch directly onto your squad.
