Ubisoft have announced that Hyper Scape ‘Season 2: The Aftermath’ is now available for gamers to play through, bringing with it an array of additional content including a new hack, weapon, customisation options, and Battle Pass.
Get a look at it in action in the trailer below:
During this season, players will get the chance to discover a new district and try a new weapon, the Atrax, which bursts sticky explosives that detonate after a certain period of time. During the season will also come a new limited-time hack coming mid-season, Platform, which allows players to deploy a horizontal platform useful for navigation and offering new creative opportunities.
Over the course of Season 2 Hyper Scape will also offer several brand-new time-limited game modes, including Crown Rush Duo and Floor is Lava. The Platform hack will be key for Floor is Lava, where the ground is transformed into a deadly magma. On top of those new modes, Season 2 will also see the return of Crown Rush, Faction War and Turbo Mode, with more to be revealed later in the season.
The new Memorial district and landmark are located in the North of Neo-Arcadia, on top of Unity Hill where Mathieu Eiffel’s Season 1 secret lab was located. The Memorial landmark, build by Prisma Dimensions to honour the people hurt by the Blackout, is an impressive monument offering the same kind of loot density and conflict opportunities as the nine other Neo-Arcadia landmarks. As it’s located on top of a hill, it provides great sights on all districts of the virtual city.
Amongst the limited-time modes available during Season 2, Crown Rush solo will come back during the Season with a brand-new feature, Second Chance, allowing players who get eliminated early in the game to get reinserted and keep playing. The fan favorite Faction War will also come back in Season 2 as a limited time mode, including some changes to make it even more fun and accessible.
One big moment in Season 2 will be the launch of the Halloween event, starting 20th October and ending on 3rd November. During the event, the Crown Rush Squad game mode will be playable by night, as it will be the case for the limited-time modes Crown Rush Solo (Season 2 week 3) and Dark Haze Squad. The Halloween event will also feature a complete Halloween, spooky dress-up for Neo-Aracadia, the game hub and the lobby. Exclusive cosmetics will be available in the game’s store all along the event.
