We first heard about the adrenaline rush that HyperBrawl Tournament is set to deliver on PC and consoles back in June, but today the hype continues with the release of a brand new video featuring the HyperVerse. Prepare to get to grips with the HyperVerse at the heart of HyperBrawl Tournament as we meet the cast of characters, learn what’s at stake in the contest, and discover the challenges awaiting the heroes of this universe.
The HyperVerse video delves into the lore of Milky Tea Studios upcoming sports brawler, HyperBrawl Tournament. The tournament itself is a contest held by an ancient society of druids who seek to find the champion of the universe. When participating in the contest, you’ll be able to choose from one of three classes of heroes: There’s the Swift class, which is fast and agile, but lacks endurance; the hulking Tank class, which can take and dish out the most damage, albeit at the expense of speed; and the Core class, which represents the jack-of-all-trades type heroes.
Each of the heroes comes with their own unique arena tied to their homeworld too, offering a glimpse at their history and culture. Every arena is different, resulting in unique shapes and obstacles that require varied strategies to adapt to. You’ll also have to master the HyperCurve to change the trajectory of your shots in order to take full advantage of each stage’s rather unique layout. Don’t forget to channel the HyperForce to power up your offensive capabilities as well, which can be used to launch your opponents out of the arena.
“HyperBrawl Tournament is an incredibly deep game with multiple layers of strategy and variety, but we wanted to make sure that its core gameplay is easy to understand and get right into,” said Jonathan Holmes, Founder & Studio Director of Milky Tea. “That’s why we made this video to give people an overview of how it all works in a brisk five minutes. We’re excited for people to start playing around with all the heroes, weapons, and arenas that we’ve spent years fine-tuning when HyperBrawl Tournament launches on October 20th.”
HyperBrawl Tournament provides an unprecedent degree of depth as you assemble a team of two heroes from three classes and then arm them with unique weapons, thus making an entirely unique playstyle. With 12 heroes in total to choose from and eight cosmic weapons ready to equip, there are apparently over 4,000 unique ways to customise your characters. You can play against the AI in the fully fleshed out single-player campaign, or face off against up to three other players in the quickmatch Arcade mode or the more competitive online Blitz mode, complete with its own global leaderboards. Whatever you decide to do, there are tons of cosmetic rewards and accolades to earn by completing various challenges.
The exciting 2v2 arena-based sports brawler HyperBrawl Tournament is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on 20th October. For now though, spare a few minutes to watch the video we’ve been waxing lyrical about…
