The OPPO Reno Ace Gundam Edition looks amazing

Based on the OG Gundam

If you thought the OPPO Reno Ace was interesting, this might just make you really want it. Also unveiled during the launch is the OPPO Reno Ace Gundam Edition.

It carries all of the Reno Ace’s specs notably the incredibly fast SuperVOOC 2.0 charging at 65W and the 90Hz panel. It’s also rocking the Snapdragon 855+ SoC along with the quad-camera setup at the back.

The four cameras are as follows: 48MP primary camera, a 13MP telephoto lens with 5x hybrid zoom, an 8MP wide angle lens, and curiously, a 2MP monochrome sensor. There’s a small waterdrop notch for the 16MP front-facing camera.

But of course, the clear difference is the whole Gundam design. This one looks like it’s based off of Mobile Suit Gundam RX-78 which first appeared on the 1979 Mobile Suit Gundam animé series.

That’s the OG Gundam right there.

The press materials already showcase what’s inside the box. And everything has a Gundam theme all over it!

A closer look shows how intricate the details are on this design.

The case is patterned on the Gundam’s shield! How cool is that?

The OPPO Reno Ace Gundam Edition will come in an 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant and is priced at CNY 3,599 (US$ 505). It will be available starting November 11 and, at least for now, it will only be sold in China.

Ubisoft wants to join in the fray with their own battle royale game. Much like already successful titles, this new battle royale is free-to-play and available across multiple devices. The combat formula is roughly the same, but this time anarchy is the name of the game. Time to enter the world of Hyper Scape!

Hyper Scape is a 100-person battle royale that adds a more modern twist. Instead of mountains, hills, small towns, and battered scenery, you will compete inside a technologically-advanced setting. With a vareity of weapons, Hacks, and Fusion techniques, you will outlast everyone in Neo Arcadia. The entire game will also feature innovate gameplay mechanics that will surely spice up all the fights.

Along with the new game, Ubisoft also announced its first Battle Pass with a ton of rewards to offer. It includes an unlockable new weapon in the Dragonfly, and a new Hack called Magnet. Apart from these, there will also be limited time modes for players to grind out the Battle Pass along with standard modes.

What the team is truly proud of is its integration to the streaming platform, Twitch. This is possible through the game’s Twitch extension called Kudos — an extension purchased through Twitch bits. Essentially, Kudos will allow players to support their favorite streamers and react to exciting gameplay. Furthermore, this feature even contributes to Battle Pass progression by watching Twitch streams.

Hyper Scape is available for the PC through UPlay, the PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
