Next, players should expect some significant changes in the transition from the beta to Season 1. The developers have been working on balancing and refining the game. In regards to balancing, the Reddit post states that they chose to balance the weapons, rather than nerf the hacks. Also, the one shot kill achieved by the Protocol V sniper rifle will return. The combination of weapons, hacks, and events will change the meta and pace of the match. Upon release, a 100 tier battle pass will be available. The battle pass will contain both free and premium tracks. As well as this, there will be a daily item store which will contain Season 1 items. Following this, there will also be a weekly store which will sell item bundles.
An anti-cheat and anti-toxicity system will be released with Hyper Scape Season 1. This will allow players to report others that they are in a squad with. Other protection measures will be implemented such as an anonymous mode for streamers and a minor protection option for children.
It will be interesting to see how Hyper Scape continues to progress through Season 1.
