Nexon has big plans for its MOBA Hyper Universe over 2018. The Korean giant – or rather, its super adorable disco dog – laid out its spring plans for the game this week. The big news is a brand-new ranked mode, with eight tiers to climb, a drafting system that lets you block specific characters you don’t want to play, a “true skill” system whereby failure loses you points, and special skin and nameplate rewards for victory.
Technically, the first season begins on February 22nd, but you can jump into the preseason to test it all out right now as long as your account is level 15 and you’ve got 12 toons unlocked. There’s also a new toon debuting this week: Captain Red, a hybrid specialist for both melee and ranged.
I’m gonna be honest: I’d rather hear patch notes read to me by a disco dog than by pretty much anyone else. That video is down below.
