Looks like some great updates are coming.
Today, Ubisoft® announced Hyper Scape Season 3: Shadow Rising will launch on March 11 on PC, PlayStation® 4, PlayStation 5®, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S. In Season 3, Hyper Scape will introduce exclusive content including a revamped map, a new hack, new story elements, a new 100-tier Battle Pass, and new customization items.
NEW GAMEPLAY CONTENT COMING WITH SEASON 3
During this season, players will get the chance to test their speed and skill in a revamped Neo Arcadia 2.0 map, and try a new Deployable Hack, the Firewall, which creates a barrier to block incoming fire while allowing the player and their squad to shoot through.
Featuring new key landmarks, more diversified terrain, and more identifiable zones for players to traverse, Neo Arcadia 2.0 will challenge our veteran players to keep up the pace with newcomers jumping into it for the first time.

Season 3 will introduce a new 2D Hub Flow in the main menu optimized to offer a much faster and more interactive experience, allowing players to view their full squad with their selected outfits and use the Locker and Shop, all while matchmaking. Less time waiting between games means more chances to win the crown!

SEASON 3 STORY: A SHADOW TEMPLE RISES IN HYPER SCAPE
Despite Prisma Dimensions’ assurances that everything is under control, strange anomalies continue to plague Neo Arcadia. The mysterious floating structures that appeared after the Blackout have coalesced into a temple that floats high above the city skyline. Basilisk is the first contender to find a way up to it.
Inside, Basilisk confronts a primal force of the Hyper Scape: Tower. Tower claims it (he?) has lost pieces of himself and charges Basilisk with recovering them in exchange for power and glory. Basilisk recruits a new face, the roguish hacker Huo Shu, to raid Prisma HQ for one of these Fragments. Meanwhile, Prisma’s own forces, under the cold hand of Nikita and his new enforcer, Bai Hu, prepare to eradicate these anomalies in any way they can.
Every week, players can collect new Memory Shards to dive deeper into Season 3’s story and lore. Additionally, Basilisk and Tower’s story will be featured in Issue 3 of the Hyper Scape Comics, released in chapters during Season 3.
