Twitch Rivals is hosting a tournament for Ubisoft’s upcoming battle royale game Hyper Scape today. Though the participants for the event weren’t initially publicized, Tfue will headline a list of competitors for the North American side of the competition.
Ubisoft recently announced that it was releasing a closed beta for its new futuristic battle royale. And to promote the game, the developer is working with Twitch Rivals to make two $100,000 tournaments, one for North America and one for Europe.
Each region’s competition is set for four hours of gameplay, with the North American region starting play at 3pm CT. Though the participants in the tournament weren’t made available initially, NA streamers have started to come online prior to the competition in the Hyper Scape category, posting in their title that they’ll be competing.
Tfue leads a long list of competitors who are poised to make an appearance today. In addition, a variety of streamers from Fortnite, Counter-Strike, and even Overwatch have gone live saying that they’ll be playing. Some of the competitors include DrLupo, former Overwatch League pro Seagull, Fortnite player HighDistortion, and CS:GO pro fl0m.
Along with a plethora of top players competing in the Hyper Scape event, Ubisoft and Twitch are furthering the promotion of the game by giving viewers a chance to get an in-game “Streamer Pod” skin. The promotion that started yesterday lasts until 1am CT on Wednesday, July 15. The skin can be earned by watching 20 minutes of any Hyper Scape stream that has drops enabled.
