Hyper Scape Creative Director’s words on the game

The event had the game’s Creative Director J.C. Guyot speak to us about developing the game from scratch. He says “The game is based in 2054. It is in the future where humanity has grown a little darker.”

One of the companies in the future is launching ‘Hyper Scape’ which is a virtual world or the internet of the future. And that is where the battle royale takes place in the city of Neo Arcadia.

He also mentions how they introduced different aspects to the game like hot drop locations for more intense combat experience. They also introduced special abilities called ‘hacks’ which allow you to teleport or build a wall or turn into a giant ball. The most interesting part is where everyone will be able to interact with the game through the Twitch extension. This will allow the spectators to make decisions that will affect the gameplay.

Towards the end of the video, he thanked the developers, the testers, and everyone who participated in the closed beta.

We also got the chance to take a look at the game’s backstory which is set in the future. Take a look at it below:
