Finally, after eight years in the [email protected] program, Hyper shooting sport is finally available! This is future millennium sports action!
So what is Hyper Gunsport?
Basically, it’s cyberpunk volleyball with guns. Teams of two (or one!) must shoot a ball into the opponent’s goal. The keeper, in the back, cannot move, but has more shooting opportunities and a longer aiming range. The Striker, in the front, can move and jump, but has more limited shots. Shoot the ball at the same time and you get a powerful (and fast!) focus shot. Each time the ball goes over the net it is worth an extra point, increasing the stakes as you play.
Each of the seven teams has unique special weapons that become available during gameplay, and each of the seven arenas has a unique gimmick, such as a moving net or targets that change position. New rulesets such as low gravity or turbo mode change the game even further.
Hyper shooting sport has a story mode for single player or co-op, and also 2v2 or 1v1 co-op versus couch play. There are team and stage unlock options, as well as an AI tournament mode to round things out. Oh, and it runs in 4K on Xbox Series S|X!
Why did it take so long?
Well, it’s quite a story! Our company Necrosoft Games was actually at the announcement of the [email protected] program in Cologne, Germany, in 2014. We entered our game at the after party! This means that in addition to the titles with which the program was announced, Hyper shooting sport was one of the first [email protected] titles ever drawn. We then promoted the game on Xbox One kits at GDC 2015, as well as the PAX West [email protected] preshow in the same year.
A lot has happened between then and now – two publishers fell by the wayside, we released a pre-release version on a streaming platform that no longer exists, and the game was canceled (and revived) five times! We’re a multi-title studio, so we were always working on something else alongside Hyper shooting sport, yet it’s amazing that it took over eight years from signing to final release. Is this the longest an [email protected] game took from signing to release? That could very well be! We probably shouldn’t be proud of it, but it’s certainly a feature of sorts.
Future Millennium Sports Action
Hyper shooting sport was truly a labor of love for us. That’s why after all these trials, tribulations and years of effort, it’s still coming to Xbox. We’ve packed the game with accessibility options, over three hours of story, and infinite replayability with couch co-op. We really hope you enjoy your time with the game now that it’s finally out!

This is a hardcore action game, but we’re also hardcore about our accessibility options so that the game can be played by anyone.
