Ubisoft’s upcoming sci-fi first person shooter (FPS) Hyper Scape features a Malaysian woman as a playable character.

According to the game’s Wiki page, one of the 11 champions – or playable character models – is Noor Azimah binti Yusof, listed as a resident of Kuala Lumpur, whose hometown is Pekan, Pahang.

Hyper Scape, set in the year 2054, puts players in the shoes of characters competing in a Battle Royale format virtual world for a chance to win fame and fortune.

Called “the face of South-East Asia”, Noor Azimah, 23, is described as a popular character among young women in the Asia Pacific region.

“User Noor, though best known as a fashionista, makes most of her income from variety streaming, which is highly competitive and dependent on the performer’s ability to distinguish themselves,” according to the Wiki page.

The character’s design sees her wearing the standard orange-grey jumpsuit like most characters, but with a pink head scarf wrapped like a turban.

Hyper Scape is currently in Open Beta for all PC users with a pre-season that began on July 12. It is expected to be expanded to Xbox One users in August.

The game is free to download, with players able to purchase cosmetic-only items with in-game currency.
