How to get the Hyper Scape beta via Twitch drops

Accessing the technical test

Hyper Scape is Ubisoft's Battle Royale game and is having a beta test right now. You'll get it via Twitch drops, which are only available for the next day or so, so you'll need to be quick if you want to play!

Hyper Scape is quite unique when compared to the established battle royale games like Fortnite and Apex Legends. It has guns and skills can be upgraded by picking up duplicates, respawn points to revive your teammates, and a map that shrinks per district rather than an ever shrinking circle.

If that sounds good to you and you want to play the game for yourself, we have the steps you need to take in order to get into the Hyper Scape beta.

How to play Hyper Scape beta

To play the Hyper Scape beta , you will need to watch certain Twitch streams with your Twitch account linked to your Uplay account. This is to get Twitch drops, which can then be redeemed in the Uplay store.

Here are the steps you need to complete to get access to the Hyper Scape beta:

  1. You will need an active Uplay account and a Twitch account. Sign up for both of those accounts.
  2. You will then need to link your Uplay and Twitch accounts. You can do so by going to the Ubisoft Drops page. It will ask you to sign into both your Twitch and Uplay accounts, then to authorise the link between both accounts. The prompt for you to link your accounts looks like this:

  1. Once you've successfully linked your accounts, head to Twitch and watch a Hyper Scape stream. Make sure that you're watching a stream with the "Drops Enabled" tag. You can find a list of currently active streams for Hyper Scape here. I'd compare the list of streams with the Ubisoft approved streamer list, just in case. (You do not need to interact with the streamer and can even set your profile to offline. If you just want the game, you can just have the stream running in the background while you do something else.)
  2. You'll eventually get a notification in Twitch notifications. Click the notifications tab and click the message to go to the Inventory screen. It'll look like this:

  1. Log into your Uplay account and click on the Hyper Scape "Click here to get access now" banner.
