[Steam page] Nexon today announced that the official Free-to-Play launch for its unique and fast-paced side-scroll MOBA, Hyper Universe, is confirmed for 17 January through Steam and Nexon launcher. Players will see a re-balanced core experience with an emphasis on individual skill and coordinated team play. Items available to purchase through the cash shop will be cosmetic only, allowing players to deck out their favorite Hypers with fresh skins while maintaining the integrity of the game’s skill requirements.
Also launching along with the game is the biggest Hyper content update yet, refueling the Universe with exciting new interactions and team compositions. With the addition of six new Hypers, one for each class, players will get to test their skills with Tae’guk, Sonya, Perseus, Han, Camilla and Gulunba, and find themselves in a heated brawl as one of 41 unique Hypers. Nexon America is servicing Hyper Universe for North America, South America, Europe, Oceania and Southeast Asia. Blocked regions can be found on this page.
“Since releasing through Steam’s Early Access program this past August, the development team carefully reviewed all player feedback, implementing wide-ranging gameplay changes,” said Jungsoo Lee, General Manager of Nexon America. “We want to thank our passionate and dedicated community for their hard work to help shape the development of this game and we eagerly await their response when it goes live for everyone later this month.” Players can also unlock in-game rewards by sharing the new trailer on Facebook!
