Intense side-scrolling action MOBA Hyper Universe is taking competition to the next level with the launch of its Ranked Mode Preseason, kicking off today and running through Feb. 22.
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 begins.
Joining the roster during the Ranked Mode Preseason is all-new Hyper, Captain Red, a Specialist with powerful melee and ranged attacks. Alongside his in-game debut, players have the opportunity to pick up Captain Red’s premium Dragon Force skin.
Hyper Universe Ranked Mode features:
- Eight Ranked Tiers: Players climb their way up the tiered skill ladder, featuring Rookie, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master and Grandmaster ranks. At the end of each season the rankings will reset;
- “True Skill” System: Rank points are always on the line, and players must secure victories to earn points and battle their way up the tiers or risk losing points with every loss;
- Drafting System: Players have the ability to ban certain Hypers when selecting their characters;
- Exclusive Rewards: After earning 30 Ranked wins at any time, players obtain the exclusive Forgotten Hero Allen skin. For reaching Gold Rank or higher before the end of Season 1, players receive a gold-plated Hyper selection name plate and Sonya’s Sonny Boy skin.
