Ubisoft announced the date and details for Season 2 of their battle royale, Hyper Scape, which will include a new weapon, hack, game modes, battle pass and additional novelties.
Season 2 of Hyper Scape will kick off on Tuesday, October 6, 2020. The season is called The Aftermath and will introduce plenty of new things. Before we get into that, however, keep in mind that players will be able to participate in Project Tower which is a special event that will start two days earlier.
It is a one-hour-long event that will probably have a cinematic moment or two, not unlike Fortnite's big shifts in scenery when a new season is around. The event has something to do with the glitches that were spotted around Neo-Arcadia and players will be able to observe it on October 4 at 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM BST / 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM PT.
Atrax is the name of the new weapon that will arrive with Season 2. You can see it on the image above and spot brief glimpses of gameplay with it in the trailer below. It will apparently fire sticky explosives that detonate after a brief period of time.
A limited-time hack will come during the season. It is called Platform which is self-explanatory since the players will use it to deploy a horizontal platform for better exploration and positioning possibilities.
The ranking system will make its debut in this season and players will be placed into one of six tiers on the ladder. From lowest to highest, they are:
Season 2 will also introduce daily login rewards which can award Battle Points or cosmetics. The new battle pass will feature more outfits, weapon skins, deployment pods and more.
