Hyper Scape v1.0 Patch Notes: New Weapon, Hacks, Twitch Abilities and More

Lloyd Coombes

Ubisoft has made huge changes.

With the game coming to consoles, as well as being updated on PC, Ubisoft took to Reddit to discuss the game's first big patch - v1.0.

Here's everything you need to know.

Hyper Scape Patch Notes v1.0

As per the Reddit Post.

Time-To-Kill

Although we find having a slightly faster TTK can be a good thing, we agree it should come more from balancing the Weapons rather than nerfing the Hacks. Overall, the v0.5 nerf on Hacks was too severe. Like many of you told us, we also firmly believe the unique pacing and gameplay provided by the Hacks is essential to Hyper Scape, and we do not intend to drift away from that.

Overall in patch v1.0 we are bringing back Hacks’ comfort and frequency to their previous state while retaining some of the balancing adjustments necessary to the game. For weapons, patch v1.0 brings fixes to the power unbalance created by patch v0.5 while retaining a portion of the accelerated TTK. We also decided to reintroduce the one-shot kill capacity of the Protocol V sniper rifle and will be monitoring it carefully in the coming weeks. We are looking at new mechanics to adjust long-range combat in the future, which will give us more tools to balance the Protocol and others. Stay tuned for more on that in the near future.

 

New Features, Improvements and Bug Fixes

The game meta will evolve thanks to the addition of the Dragonfly, a new semi-auto rifle, and the Magnet, a new Hack. A new Lethal Melee Event will change the dynamic of the match and several new Limited Time Game Modes will appear during the season.

The Hyper Scape team wants to thank all the players, streamers, and viewers for their time in the Open Beta and for all their feedback. Hearing from you is essential to our development process and this patch would not have been possible without your involvement in the game.

Remember that every reward and all progress unlocked in the game is linked to your Uplay profile and will be available on all platforms thanks to our cross-progression feature.

Welcome to the Season One of Hyper Scape, Contenders!

The Protocol recently got a hefty nerf
