In a universe filled with MOBAs, only one is named Hyper Universe! Earlier this week Nexon and Cwavesoft announced that their side-scrolling PvP MOBA will be entering Early Access on Steam at the end of Summer.
Hyper Universe will feature a unique blend of side-scrolling fighting, coupled with the highly strategic, team orientated gameplay found in most MOBA games. Players will take control of one of a multitude of battle-ready “Hypers,” which come in all different shapes and sizes.
These “Hypers” range from a mage who can rain down giant snowmen on his enemies, to a mongoose riding astride an armored rhinoceros, to a tentacled Admiral with the power of the Kraken at his call, and that’s just the beginning. Players will use these insane abilities to defeat the opposing team and bring about victory.
Breaking the game down even further, Hyper Universe will challenge players to use to dominate and defend across multi-level, side-scrolling maps, jumping up and down, climbing ladders, busting through floors, and warping behind enemies, all with the goal of destroying the five turrets throughout the level. The six character classes include a Tank, Bruiser, Specialist, Striker, Support, and Assassin.
The game will also feature a highly customizable aspect, ranging from the “Hypers” appearance to abilities. Couple that along with the beat um up fun found in most side scrolling 2D fighting games, and you have a very unique, and promising, premise on your hands.
Hyper Universe will be available for 15.99 after its release window on August 24, 2017. But for a limited time, the first players to join will receive a 38% discount at Hyper Universe Steam Page, between Aug. 24-27.
