Hyper Universe to Shut Down on PC

The writing certainly felt like it was on the wall, but now we can indeed confirm that a Hyper Universe PC shutdown in the West is on the way, leaving fans of the side-scrolling MOBA on the platform out of luck.

“This was not an easy decision to make; we’ve worked hard to make this game as great as it could possibly be, and have poured our hearts into building out this unique cast of lovable characters,” reads the official announcement. “We’re incredibly grateful to our fans for playing—none of this would have been possible without you.”

Hyper Universe’s cash shop will be closed on November 15th and refunds will be issued for those who purchased items between August 2018 and October 2018. After that, December 19th will see the servers shut off and January 19th will see customer service for the MOBA end.

On the flip side, the game continues to live on Xbox One and is even seeing an update today that will bring two new characters, ranked play, and a Halloween event. More details on that update are due to be posted on the official site.

Our Thoughts

Bit of bad news, good news then. It’s a pity the game didn’t grab hearts and minds on PC, but considering the big-name competition for the genre on that platform it’s also perhaps not a terribly great surprise. Ideally, those PC players will find a home on the Xbox One version and we wish the devs of the game on PC the best of luck in any future endeavors.

Hyper Universe to Sunset in Korea

It’s looking like bad news for the side-scrolling MOBA Hyper Universe. Nexon has confirmed that a Hyper Universe shutdown for the Korean version of the game is imminent after just under two years of operation.

hyper universe shutdown

The official announcement from the Korean game gives a standard response about how Hyper Universe could not “provide a satisfactory service to the players”, which has prompted the decision for the game to go dark.

Shutdown of Hyper Universe in Korea will be on Thursday, November 15th: just days before its second anniversary, as the game first went live in Korea on Tuesday, November 22nd.

As for the Western version of the game, there are no immediate indicators from the team regarding the health of the game. It released on Xbox One this past August and the Xbox version received an update this past September and even held a player-run tournament pretty recently.

On the other side of the coin, the most recent tweet from the game’s official account was heralding the launch of MapleStory 2, so one can certainly draw some dire conclusions.

Our Thoughts

The MOBA bubble never had terribly strong walls to begin with and it looks like Hyper Universe is the next to go, regrettably. We do want to wish those affected in Korea the best and hope that all of these ill omens don’t come to anything more for fans of the game.

Hyper Universe Arrives to Xbox One Tomorrow

It’s not quite out here in the States yet – blame the round planet Earth for that – but today marks the official start of the Hyper Universe Xbox One launch, bringing side-scrolling MOBA gameplay to the console for free on August 7th.

hyper universe xbox one launch

Those who play Xbox One in New Zealand have already seen the game release to them, so that brings Hyper Universe online for the US starting at midnight PST on Tuesday, August 7th during the game’s global rollout.

As mentioned before when the game confirmed its release date, Hyper Universe is arriving with 39 Hypers in its roster, two maps, and a variety of gameplay modes and features including Custom Matches and a Spectate mode.

In celebration of the game’s Xbox One launch, players can earn themselves a new character skin. From August 7th to September 10th, those who play and win ten matches will unlock a console-exclusive Auroroa’s Blade skin for the character Allen.

Free players will gain access to a weekly rotation of heroes, while the in-game shop will house Hypers and skins. If you’d rather not deal with a weekly rotation, there is an offered Ultimate Hypers Pack that includes all existing and future characters along with Xbox exclusive skins for several characters. That will set you back $19.99.

All the details you could want for the Xbox One launch of Hyper Universe can be found on the game’s website.

Our Thoughts

We hope Xbox One players find something to enjoy in Hyper Universe. Admittedly, the choices for MOBA gameplay on the console are pretty thin so perhaps there is an underserved audience there. We’d love to hear your take on this game if you do decide to check it out come launch.

Hyper Universe Announces an Xbox One Release Date

Nexon America has decided that their side-scrolling MOBA-like online battler could do with an expanded audience. The company has confirmed a Hyper Universe Xbox One release date of Tuesday, August 7th along with plans to showcase the game in the months leading up to its console debut.

hyper universe xbox one release

Hyper Universe will be a console exclusive for the Xbox One family of systems, with 4K HD and HDR enhancements for those with the Xbox One X system. Hyper Universe’s console release will feature all the game’s bells and whistles: 4v4 online battles, co-op multiplayer vs. AI for up to four players, two maps, and custom matches and spectator mode.

“Bringing one of the most unique MOBA experiences on the market to the Xbox console represents a huge opportunity for us,” said Nexon America president Jungsoo Lee. “The fast-paced action of MOBA video games forces players to think strategically, and we know console gamers will love it.”

Hyper Universe will be drumming up interest through a stream from E3 on June 13th from the official Xbox channel on Mixer. There will also be codes handed out for an exclusive skin during the Xbox FanFest at E3 on June 10th and 11th.

Our Thoughts

While our own review found Hyper Universe a fun game with some unfortunate limitations, we do think that a game like this would likely play well on consoles. With that in mind, we hope that Xbox One players find something here worth trying out.

Hyper Universe Launches Ranked Mode

Competitive games and competitive gamers naturally want to know how they stack up among themselves, and one of the best ways to do that is with a ranked mode. Hyper Universe understands. Hyper Universe cares. Hyper Universe ranked mode is now a thing with the side-scrolling MOBA’s latest update.

hyper universe ranked mode

Hyper Universe’s ranked mode will introduce eight different tiers for players to climb, from Rookie all the way to Grandmaster. Climbing the ranks is based on what’s being called a “True Skill System”, where wins earn points and losses lose points. There will also be a drafting system where players can decide to ban certain Hypers.

In addition to simply earning ranks, players will be rewarded an exclusive Forgotten Hero skin for the Hyper Allen after their 30 Ranked wins. Those who make it to Gold rank or higher by the end of the first season will a gold-plated Hyper selection name plate as well as the Sonny Boy skin for Sonya.

The new update also introduces the Specialist character Captain Red, who can call in teammates to help him out with several of his skills provided he’s gathered enough Courage Charges to do so.

Ranked mode in Hyper Universe is currently in preseason, with the official start of Season 1 due on Thursday, February 22nd. Players who have an account level of 15 and at least 12 Hypers including those in free rotation can participate in the preseason, and a player’s record will not count until Season 1 begins. More details can be seen on the website.

Our Thoughts

Win, earn points; lose, lose points. Seems pretty cut-and-dry to us and sometimes that can be the best way to do things. Assuming, of course, people don’t try to intentionally throw matches for reasons that we fail to comprehend. We’re looking forward to seeing how players will take to the new Ranked Mode added to Hyper Universe and whether things will change for further seasons.

Hyper Universe Launches Free to Play

It’s been a couple of weeks since we last brought this up, so consider this something of a friendly reminder; today marks the free-to-play Hyper Universe release on both the Nexon Launcher and on Steam.

hyper universe release

As stated before, the 2D side-scrolling 4v4 brawler launches with six brand-new Hypers: the tank Galunbra, Camilla the support, specialist Perseus, the striker Han, a new bruiser named Sonya, and the assassin Tae’guk. The launch update also offers new common equipment useable by any member of the roster, as well as an achievement system to earn weekly and monthly rewards.

Hyper Universe is offering up some login rewards for up to a week after today’s launch, granting players who log in and compete in at least one regular or AI match 30 Hyper cubes, 6 Hyper Coupons and 1 Hyper Skin Coupon.

Hyper Universe can be downloaded now via Steam or the game’s official website. You can also check out the launch trailer below, which features people being slapped in the face with stuff in slow motion. Just because.

Our Thoughts

Watching someone get hit in the face with a fish will never not be funny. On point, though, we hope that players have a great time in Hyper Universe’s unique take on 4v4 online competitive brawling. The multiplayer space can always use more unique and fun-forward titles.

Hyper Universe Provides a Launch Date

4v4 side-scrolling battle is about to arrive to players in only a matter of days. Nexon today has announced the Hyper Universe launch date, along with an update that introduces six new characters to the roster and a number of core gameplay tweaks.

hyper universe launch date

When Hyper Univese goes live, it will come with an update that brings up the total roster of Hypers to 41. The six new roster additions will introduce a brand-new choice for each of the brawler’s six classes. There will also be tweaks to gameplay meant to enforce “individual skill and coordinated teamplay” according to the announcement.

The official launch will be this coming Wednesday, January 17th. The game will be free-to-play with a cash shop focused exclusively on cosmetics to let players customize their Hypers. Fans have been encouraged to share the game’s launch trailer on Facebook to earn free Hyper Coupons and Skin Coupons based on the number of shares the video gets.

Or you can simply watch said trailer below if you prefer.

Our Thoughts

Looks like things are about to get…fast. Hah! Thought I was gonna type “hyper”, didn’t you? But in all honesty, it would appear that there are lots of fans that are more than ready for this game to arrive and so we hope they have an awesome time come January 17th.

MMO Alpha and Beta List: November 17, 2017

It was a week of mixed feelings for the online gaming world with games getting shut down while others are launching, delays being announced, along with all new games.

This week Kings and Heroes launched, meanwhile Crowfall’s soft launch has been delayed. Forsaken Legends announced that the game is still alive and kicking, but they’ll have to step back from being a fully fledged MMORPG and turn into a multiplayer game.

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend consider checking out the free weekend of Hyper Universe. Or if shooters are more your thing go back into time in Tannenberg, which is currently in open beta.

 

Zombie MMO Dead Maze has gone into closed beta along with Ironsight. While Bluehole/Kakao’s new steampunk MMORPG Ascent: Infinite Realm (A:IR) announced they’ll go into closed beta on December 13th, but it will only be in Korean.

If you need another Battle Royal game in your life be sure to check out Islands of Nyne which is going into Alpha on November 25th.

And finally, both Wild West Online and Tactical Monsters Rumble Arena entered early access this week.

As always you can find everything mentioned above and so much more in the lists below. Keep an eye out for the new  flag which will show you what is new this week.
