The Inner Gamer,

277: Hyper Scape, Maneater and Ubisoft Forward

July 14, 2020

After Ubisoft Forward, the open beta for Hyper Scape released. Hyper Scape is the new battle royale from Ubisoft in which 99 players go head to head in a virtual world called Neo Arcadia. It’s a fast-paced, urban shooter with a simplistic gameplay style but lots of depth in the maneuverability around the world. The question is…does it have staying power? Brett also plays a wild game called Maneater. You play a little shark that grows up by eating lots of things in brutal ways. It’s very intense but a lot of fun to play and surprisingly deeper of an RPG than expected.

In the news, we talk about live streams from Devolver Digital and Nacon. We also talk about Marty O’Donnell’s feelings about the Activision/Bungie relationship. There is also word that Half-LIfe 3 and Left 4 Dead 3 were in production but got cancelled because Source Engine 2 wasn’t far enough along.

In the discussion this week, it’s all about Ubisoft Forward. They had their first Live Stream of the year and it featured coverage on Watch Dogs Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and the first reveal of Far Cry 6. There wasn’t anything new, but it was a lot of great information about these hot, new games.

Special thanks to Crazzie Pro Gear. They provided us with some incredible pro-level backpacks for carrying our computer equipment to all our events. If you want a bag yourself, head over to their website to purchase one! A portion of the proceeds go to support The Inner Gamer.
