TGS07: The new (and old) features of Wipeout HD


Wipeout HD is hitting the PLAYSTATION Store later this year, and although it's just a remix of tracks from previous games, there's a lot to look forward to. In addition to the obviously improved graphics, the game takes a few key features from previous Wipeout titles, and adds a few of its own:
  • SIXAXIS support - "Wipeout HD provides full support of the SIXAXIS wireless controller." Tilt-ready racing, perhaps?
  • Mag-Strips - From the upcoming Wipeout Pulse game on PSP, this feature allows players to defy gravity through tracks that feature loops, vertical drops, and 90 degree sections.
  • Teams - Like any Wipeout game, this iteration features eight teams from Wipeout Pulse.
  • Seven Race Modes, including Zone - Single Race, Tournament, Time Trial, Speed Lap, Zone Mode, Elimination and Head-2-Head. Zone Mode, from Wipeout Pure, will make your craft go progressively faster throughout a race until your ship explodes. It's one of the best additions to the franchise in recent memory.
  • Three New Weapons - The Repulser, Shuriken and Leach Beam.
  • Photo Mode - Like Wipeout Pulse, players will be able to take screenshots from within the game.
  • 8 Eight Player Online Multiplayer - With "Team vs Team" mode, which allows teams of two to compete in larger races.
  • Community Website - Lets players create their own profiles and see stats and data for other players.
  • Downloadable Content - The game will continue to expand through more downloadable packs.
  • Music - Nine fully-licensed music tracks, remixed in 5.1.
Expect Wipeout HD to hit the Store later this year. Until then, check out our new screenshots.

5. I'm really looking forward to this PSN title. Particularly the multiplayer.

I still play WipEout Pure on my PSP. It really helps to have a PSP when you commute 3 hours a day. WipEout Pulse will soon replace it I hope.

6. If I have WipEout Pulse on my PSP it should unlock the ablity to play this by remote play too...that would be the bees knees.

7. I need a release date!!! Actually I need it to be released now but I can wait... I think. I picked up a copy of wipEout 3 to tide me over.

I really hope the SIXAXIS controls work well. I loved neGcon control way back when, motion controls seem like a perfect fit for Wipeout if done well.

8. All I need to know is: WHEN and HOW MUCH?? =o
Scratch that!... All I need to know is: WHEN?? =D

On a side note, I was just thinking that the screen shots for this game look BETTER then the original Wip3Out's boxart! Is it just me?...

9. @Kspraydad

ya remote play would be perfect for this game...

Personally, I'm getting Wipeout Pulse for my PSP first...

10. Please, please tell me that this title will be in 1080p. Being based on old graphics in this game, the PS3 should easily be able to handle it, I hope they don't get lazy and release in 720p.
