Some details may be speculative, and may turn out to be incorrect.

Wipeout Omega Collection (stylised as WipEout Omega Collection) is an upcoming futuristic racing video game developed by Sony XDev Europe, Clever Beans  and EPOS Game Studios for the PlayStation 4. It is the tenth standalone title in the Wipeout series and the first not developed by original developers Studio Liverpool, following the studio's closure in 2012. It is a remaster of the previous two entries in the series: Wipeout HD, its Wipeout HD Fury expansion and Wipeout 2048. The game is set for release in June 2017.

Overview Edit

VanUber-Tigron Omega Mashup

Van-Über and Tigron will return to the series for the first time since Wipeout Pure

Wipeout Omega Collection is a remaster of the previous two titles in the Wipeout series: Wipeout HD, its Wipeout HD Fury expansion and Wipeout 2048. Wipeout HD itself contained content from Wipeout Pure and Wipeout Pulse. Players control anti-gravity ships which are owned racing corporations (effectively referred to as 'teams' in-game). Every ship has different characteristics, for example each ship has variations in handling, thrust, maximum speed and shield strength. Each craft is equipped with an energy shield which absorbs damage sustained during a race; energy is lost whenever the player's ship collides or is hit by weapons fire. If the shield runs out, the player's ship will explode and is consequently eliminated from the race. However, the player may replenish energy by absorbing weapon pick-ups.

Nine games modes will appear in Omega Collection: Zone, Tournament, Speed Lap, Time Trial and Single Race from HD; Zone Battle, Eliminator and Detonator from Fury; and the Career Mode from 2048. The game will contain 26 unique tracks and 46 unique ship models. The game will include split-screen and online multiplayer. [1] Also, Racebox will be included for all tracks. [2]

Omega Collection was designed to be run at 1080p on the Playstation 4 and 4K on the Playstation 4 Pro, both at 60 frames-per-second. Van-Über and Tigron will return to the series, with the former as a digital preorder bonus.[3][4]

Development Edit

Studio Liverpool, the original developers of the Wipeout series, announced its closure by Sony Worldwide Studios. However, Sony stressed that the only part of the Liverpool campus that is being closed is Studio Liverpool. The campus will still house Sony's External Development Studio Europe (XDev) among other departments.[5]

In 2015, Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida stated on a possible Wipeout for the PS4 "Never say never. From my standpoint I try to balance the number of games in a franchise. In the future there might be a chance to come back to a game like Wipeout."[6] In 2016 Nick Burcombe, co-creator of the original Wipeout, commented “If (my latest project) Table Top Racing is successful, I know I can put a team together for it as I get asked every week if we’re making a new Wipeout. If there’s demand there, we’d love to meet it. But as it stands right now, without the Wipeout brand on it – which I doubt Sony is about to relinquish anytime soon – it’s kind of out of the question without Sony’s blessing."[7]

The game was announced by Sony Interactive Entertainment on 4 December 2016, during the annual PlayStation Experience expo for a Summer 2017 release.[8][9][10] On 30 March 2017, Sony announced that the game will be available on 6 June for North America and 7 June for Europe. [11][12]

Pre-order Bonus Edit

Those who pre-order the game digitally will be gifted a dynamic theme for their PS4 as well as access to the Van-Über ship. [13] Those who pre-order the disc version will be given an exclusive steelbook as well as static themes for the PS4. (The steelbook is not available in NA.)[14]

Wipeout Omega Collection will feature 28 licensed soundtracks, consisting of select soundtracks from previous Wipeout games, as well as new soundtracks never seen before.[15][16]
