The biggest publishers in gaming have each taken their shot with successful triple-A battle royale games like Apex Legends and Call of Duty: Warzone, and it looks like Ubisoft is about to try its hand at it. According to esports reporter Rod Breslau, the publisher will tease a new game called Hyper Scape this week, which is a battle royale game set in a virtual world.

As with Apex Legends and Valorant before it, Breslau says that Ubisoft has invited many streamers, YouTubers, and other gaming influencers to see the game for themselves ahead of a closed beta next week. He further claims that Hyper Scape offers an unprecedented "a level of integration" with Twitch, with Twitch chat able to directly impact play with events and the like. He offered an example in a follow-up tweet: viewers will be able to vote for either speed or health boost items, and they will earn progress by watching games. Streamers will also garner revenue for bit purchases.

This beta period will extend into July, with a full launch of the game coming on July 12. Hyper Scape will also offer cross-play between PC and consoles. Based on the leaked screenshots, the futuristic aesthetic of the game looks like a mix between Watch Dogs, Destiny, and Tron.
