Ubisoft’s attempt to compete with Fornite with Hyper Scape fell flat on its face. Only a handful of people were genuinely excited about the idea for a season 2 for a game that barely got through season 1. However, Ubisoft is intent on tossing its hat in the battle royale ring.
What Changes Came With Ubisoft’s Hyper Scape Season 2?
Hyperscape began its season 2 on October 6th, 2020, and appropriately titled it, “The Aftermath.” New changes for season 2 include:
- New game modes
- Improvement in base experience
- Quality of life updates
- Solo queue
- New district
- New sticky bomb gun
- An ability that gives players the ability to create platforms
Why Did Ubisoft Make So Many Changes To Hyper Scape In Season 2?
Hyper Scape didn’t live up to anyone’s expectations. It didn’t even live up to Ubisoft’s expectations. While the game looks thrilling on video, it was challenging to start, hard to learn, and the game modes were very unforgiving.
This effectively culled the players who did stick around to see if it would get any better. Even diehard Ubisoft fans were grinding their teeth, trying to make heads or tails of the first Hyper Scape season. It was supposed to be their crowning achievement against games such as Apex Legends or Fortnite.
Is Hyper Scape Season 2 Good?
The Atrax, a gun with sticky explosives, is an excellent addition. The hack used to deploy platforms may be creative, but it’s only available for a limited time. The new game modes such as “Floor Is Lava” and “Crown Rush Duo” are both time-based game modes. Whether these small changes are good or not depends on the player’s opinions, especially those who have been around since the first season. The idea of playing Floor Is Lava in a virtual world where you’re shooting at other players does sound kind of fun.
