Hyper Universe – Nexon announces preseason for Ranked Mode and new content roadmap

[Play free now] After its recent launch, Nexon today revealed the addition of the Ranked Mode Preseason in Hyper Universe which lasts until 22nd February. The Ranked Mode Preseason gives players the opportunity to hone their skills and tactics, become familiar with the Ranked system and prepare for the opening of Season 1 debuting on Feb. 22. Players who have an account level of 15 and at least 12 Hypers including free rotation can participate in the Preseason, and a player’s record will not count until Season 1 officially begins.

Joining the roster during the Ranked Mode Preseason is the all-new Hyper, Captain Red, a Specialist with powerful close-combat melee attacks and ranged damage. His ultimate move, Special Force Vulcan, summons allies and a weaponized motorcycle to deal massive damage in a straight line. Mash the indicated buttons for maximum damage! Alongside his in-game debut, players have the opportunity to pick up Captain Red’s premium Dragon Force skin.
