Anyone looking for a new multiplayer game to play with friends is in luck. Hyper Jam is an indie game developed by Bit Dragon and it officially has a release date for Feb. 12, 2019.
The director for the game, Roman Maksymyschyn, wrote a post on the PlayStation blog detailing the upcoming title, which is the first release for the studio. Hyper Jam is a multiplayer battle arena with both local and online multiplayer that utilizes a drafted perk system in order to make every battle feel unique.
At the end of every round, each player gets to choose from a variety of different abilities to help them for the remainder of the match. Certain perks will work better or worse with others, which allows players to experiment with different combinations to find what they like best. The catch here is that the draft allows the worst player in the previous round to choose what they want first, leaving the best player stuck with the options no one else wanted.
Hyper Jam is coming with crossplay to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. For more information, check out the game’s website. If you need some multiplayer games to play now while waiting for this game’s release, check out some of these titles.
