Ready for a one-two-three punch? The neon-filled arena brawler that is Hyper Jam has today got itself a fully confirmed release date… and it won’t be long before you get the chance to trade blows with your mates.
Coming from Bit Dragon, Hyper Jam is promising to deliver punches galore when it releases on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come Feb 12th 2019.
Running with a cross platform strategy that will allow PC players the opportunity to go toe-to-toe with the very best console players, Hyper Jam is gearing up to see friends and strangers alike challenge each other to a fight to the death. Inspired by the vibrant 1980s, no matter whether you deal with the local or online multiplayer scenes, Hyper Jam has got you covered as up to four players trade blows using a range of deadly weapons ranging from katanas to rocket launchers, all while upgrading yourself with a variety of game-changing perks that are drafted between rounds.
It is in battle where the most impressive fighters will reign supreme and by utilising a variety of tactics, you’ll need to strike other players down. This will see you needing to make use of environmental hazards like speeding trains in a Neo-Tokyo subway or the treacherous rooftop ledges of a sun-drenched Miami hotel. If you thought that emerging victorious was going to be simple though, then you’ll be pleased to know that Hyper Jam isn’t just about racking up kills; score limits and survive full rounds will be essential to see you succeed.
A range of exciting perks will be in place in Hyper Jam too, providing new abilities to all. You”ll find that a scoreboard at the end of each round will determine the order of the perk draft – whoever is coming last gets the first pick of perks and the winner takes whatever’s left. That should ensure that while everyone begins at a level playing field, fighters will enhance their skills the longer matches draw on, stacking and combining powers to create wholly distinct builds.
“Hyper Jam is an explosive arena brawler that combines the precision and satisfying feeling of traditional competitive fighting games with a gritty and splashy neon ‘80s aesthetic,” said Roman Maksymyschyn, Director, Bit Dragon. “Our team has had an absolute blast developing and playtesting this game, and we’re just about ready to share it with the world. Look out for it soon!”
Hyper Jam will be available in a variety of languages – English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish – when it releases on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on the 12th February 2019, with the on-screen action back up by a killer synthwave soundtrack featuring Carpenter Brut, Dance With the Dead, and other fan favorites,
The pricing structure of Hyper Jam at 14.99 USD / 22.45 AUD / 14.99 EUR on Xbox One, 14.99 USD on PlayStation 4 and 12.99 USD / 18.50 AUD / 10.79 EUR on Steam, should ensure a number of players see the opportunity to get involved.
