Ubisoft Offers A $10 Coupon If You'll Play Hyper Scape

Getting a game for 10 bucks is great. Getting a game for free is even better. But what if I told you you could get a game for negative 10 dollars? Best deal ever, right?

From now until 11 a.m. Pacific on Dec. 17, you can get a $10 coupon for any Ubisoft title simply by playing a match in the already free-to-play battle royale Hyper Scape. You'll have to play via the Ubisoft Connect launcher on PC and make your purchase -- of $14.99/$20.99 or more in the U.S. or Canada, respectively -- on the Ubisoft Store before Jan. 31, 2021. You'll need to live in one of those two countries, but the $10 coupon can be applied to any game in the store, including new releases like Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, and Immortals Fenyx Rising. You can learn more about the offer on its promo page.

Maybe I'm being pessimistic (who, me?) but I don't think this bodes well for Hyper Scape's future. After a big Twitch initiative surrounding its launch, and plenty of money spent on influencer marketing, it's basically a non-factor in online viewership. Twitch numbers aren't everything, but as of this moment, it's got 68 viewers, and it probably hasn't even sniffed four digits for months. Now Ubisoft is basically paying regular people to play it, or perhaps just writing the whole thing off as a marketing expense for its other games. It's not a good look, and I wouldn't be surprised if the game didn't survive to the end of next year.

This seems like it won't help the game at all. Do these kind of things ever work? If people don't want to play the game then they're not and giving away money to get them to 'try it' doesn't seem it's going to attract people. It actually seems pretty tone deaf as to why people keep playing certain games when there are 'better' games out there. It's not because they don't know or have never 'tried' it.
