The waiting is finally over! With the beta sign up of Hytale being active and flocks of tweets teasing the gameplay on Twitter, we can finally expect this game in 2021. Wanna try out the beta version? Continue reading and learn how.
With the beta version sign up just being rolled out, we can finally have our first impressions on our most anticipated open sandbox game, Hytale. If you have been following the gaming headlines quite recently, you might be aware that gamers had been waiting so long for this title. Now that Hypixel Studio finally announced the beta sign-up, and has been constantly teasing clips from this game on their Twitter handle, gaming nerds like myself can sign up, install and try out this title. But wait! You might be asking how can you try out this game even before the launch? Here’s how.
WHAT IS HYTALE? WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HYPE?
You have probably heard of and played the popular open sandbox game Minecraft, right? This game, over the years, has gathered an immense player-base with adventurous gameplays and hidden easter eggs. Quite similar to Minecraft, Hytale is an upcoming sandbox role-playing video game, developed by Hypixel Studios. This name sounds familiar? Well, if you have played Minecraft, you have probably come across the popular multiplayer server Hypixel, with the assistance and financial support from Riot Games, that later acquired Hypixel back in April 2020. More on that later.
Shockingly resembling Minecraft, Hytale brings forward its procedurally-generated fantasy worlds with blocks and various objects arranged on its 3D grid, featuring randomly generated dungeons and biomes. Similar to Minecraft, players can participate in minigames, build mods and share custom objects using their in-game tools. On the gameplay side, Hytale will feature RPG-styled combat for multiplayer modes with dynamic Boss encounter and map exploring. Additionally, the game will bring forward its scripting system, allowing the players to create custom assets within.
The reasons for our anticipation does not end here. Using the scripting system, players can also develop, modify and implement custom 3D modelling, texturing, and animations using CraftStudio. Hypixel, being an immensely popular Minecraft server itself, Hytale will also feature its official and community servers with the ability to add custom features and minigames, including PvP matches and custom lobbies. The hype level behind this game is unreal, and this led to Hytale’s nomination for being the “Most Wanted Game” by the Golden Joystick Awards, back in 2019.
Let’s now get back to the development of Hytale. So what triggered the inspiration behind Hytale’s development? Back in 2014, the end-user license agreement implemented by Mojang Studios (The developer of Minecraft) led to an 85% drop in the Hypixel server’s annual market revenue, as Mojang Studios blocked third-party servers from having microtransactions affecting gameplay. The development team behind the Hypixel server realised they weren’t in full control of their projects and decided to develop their standalone game from scratch, which today we know as Hytale.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is Hytale free for everyone?
As the game is still unfinished, it’s hard to say whether the final package will be free or paid. When asked with this question, the developers replied they are still working on the core business model. Once that’s done, they’ll finalise and share more details. However, there’s an immensely high possibility that Hytale will be absolutely free for all.
Is Hytale cancelled for release?
No, Hytale is still in its development stage and speculations are there for releasing this game in 2021. If you want to have early gameplay of this title, you can sign-up for the beta version over The Official Site of Hytale and join 2.5 million players enjoying this game. However, you must be aware that the game may contain glitches and bugs.
Is Hytale for Windows and Mac only?
As of now, Hytale is available in closed beta, on Windows and Mac, with the game servers running on Linux. As the gaming enthusiasts would love having the title on their mobile, there’s no official confirmation from Hypixel Studios. Their statements foreshadow the possibility of launching this game on other platforms during the development.
Our speculations say that Hytale is just months from its final release. From what we have seen so far, via the Hytale Twitter handle and teased gameplay videos, it’s an incredibly ambitious game aiming towards reaching the limit of creativity. And once it’s out, I’m eager to witness an expansion of creative aspects that made Minecraft so unique and adventurous. So, are you excited about this game?
