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.
We’ve heard the feedback from our Oceania players loud and clear- we have added a new data center in Australia. Server is up now, and games are already running. No need to do anything extra on your side, besides go for the Crown!July 13, 2020
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."
