Hyper Scape is a battle royale title from Ubisoft and follows the free-to-play model. The title is available for players through Twitch drops at the moment. However, it will be launched as a F2P title in a few days. Some PC users already have access to the game and are running into a few issues. If you are facing the Hyper Scape Crash on Launch Issue on PC, here’s how you can fix it.

Ubisoft has decided to release their own take on the Battle Royale genre, and hope to integrate it Twitch. It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against the big ones like Warzone, Fortnite, and Apex Legends.

  • Select the Compatibility tab
  • Click Change settings for all users
  • Under Privilege Level, check Run this program as administrator
