Ubisoft Reportedly Developing New PvPvE Hero Shooter

There’re never enough battle royales.

Ubisoft is reportedly having another crack at the battle royale genre by developing a new third-person shooter with a working title of ‘Pathfinder’.

Tom Henderson from Exputer said this was confirmed by his sources. Henderson said the images and videos he sighted indicate that the game will feature visuals and graphics similar to Hyper Scape, Ubisoft Montreal’s battle royale that is due to shut down later this month.

Henderson added that Pathfinder will likely have some differences compared to other battle royale games. One major difference is that teams of four players will drop into the map and fight other players as well as AI enemies and make their way to the center of the map to fight the main AI boss.

Players can choose from a number of different characters called ‘heroes’ to play. Every character has their own unique set of abilities, similar to Apex Legends.

Epic poses can currently cause Apex Legends to crash.

Pathfinder will be Ubisoft’s second attempt at breaking through the battle royale genre after Hyper Scape failed to garner the results they were hoping for.

On January 28, Ubisoft announced in a blog post that from April 28, Hyper Scape will end development and shut its servers down. This is reportedly due to a lack of active players in the game. Ubisoft added that they “will be taking key learnings from this game into future products”.

Pathfinder is still in early development and will most likely be a few years away from release but let’s hope Ubisoft manages to take those lessons from Hyper Scape’s failure and apply them to this game.
