The ongoing Hyper Scape open beta (opens in new tab) just became more viable for players in the Oceania region, with the announcement that Ubisoft has added a new Australia-based data server. According to the official Hyper Scape Twitter account, players in Oceania don't need to take any action: they'll automatically join matches hosted on the new servers.

Joining the open beta is easy enough, with sign ups available here (opens in new tab). Hyper Scape was announced barely a fortnight ago and had a brief technical test mostly populated by streamers and influencers, before the free-for-all open beta kicked off on Sunday evening.

Morgan played Hyper Scape upon its initial reveal. "I love Hyper Scape's athletic movement and roof-hopping navigation," he wrote (opens in new tab), "but I want more reasons to explore the map than the pursuit of power upgrades, especially when those upgrades feel required to stay competitive in a fight."
