Adam Michel Senior Manager of Game Services Content, SHE We have been able to take advantage of the power and memory bandwidth of PS4 to rework all textures in the game.
Pretty much all VR games do require the headset to play them. Trover saves the universe is the only VR made game that has play on TV support.
Strap on your helmet and slip into the cockpit: WipEoutOmega Collection is on PlayStation Plus. Though it's not nearly as suggestive as the previous sentence may imply, it's still a damn sexy addition to the lineup, and one you should check out pronto.
If you're a pro gamer like us, you'll no doubt have conquered the PlayStation 4 racer already; beaten ZICO's times, reached Zone 1 Billion, and crushed all comers online. Some of you may have never fired a Quake, or barrel rolled through the air like a metal dolphin.
It's for these poor people we've compiled some tips to race to the front of the pack. Wipe out is a game show about slightly-not-fit-enough people being bashed into chemically treated water by oversized, padded geometry.
Wipe Out is a song by The Surfaces, the tune synonymous with glistening surfer dudes and featured on the 1987 album Dirty Dancing. WipE out is the balls to the wall, anti-gravity racing experience with killer music, intense action, and the best presentation this side of PowerPoint.
This isn't a leisurely stroll through the park, reaching its climax as you feed bread to the ducks. The WipE out ships are notoriously nimble; when you first start off, you'll find it almost impossible to collide with the barriers.
With a little practice, and a dollop of patience, you'll be pinged ponging your way to victory every time. Toucan pop your luggage in the legroom, maybe bring along a packet of nuts and a cup of tea, but the most important part is the sick bag.
While you're bouncing around at ludicrous speeds, your tummy is going to turn into a washing machine in the process. WipE out has various pick-ups dotted around the tracks, but by far your biggest allay is a small paper bag in which to chunder.
What sort of dosh are investors, sponsors, and advertisers pumping into this unbelievable future-sport? If you knew how much the ship you're piloting cost to build, you'd never climb into the bucket seat.
The dark, overcrowded streets belong to a poor, hungry, furious populace. As you speed through the polished hover-roads in the sky, daily bloodshed, riots, and desperate cries of anguish play out below.
You might have made it to the big leagues, sitting in the most expensive vehicles ever produced, but don't think your life is worth a damn to the suits behind the scenes. The WipE out series is famed for its impeccable presentation, and that's partly thanks to Designers Republic.
Of course toucan 't, because you're just playing a darned video game, and have no interest in graphic design. There you have it: our best tips and tricks for getting ahead in WipEoutOmega Collection, on PS Plus this month.
It is worth telling you just how brilliant WipeoutOmega Collection is in VR, though, because it obviously isn’t just another Wipe out game. This is the Wipeoutyou dreamed of all the way back in 1995: intuitive, accessible, visceral, thrilling, relative racing that’s brought front and center by rooting you in the immediacy of VR.
All of this content can be accessed inside the new PSV support, which arrives as a free update for everyone that owns it. Though youcanplay from the more traditional third-person perspective, this is the first Wipe out game that really feels at home in the cockpit view, delivering that same kind of fantastical curiosity you experienced when you first jumped into a ship in EVE: Valkyrie, or found yourself in the driver’s seat of Drivel VR.
On paper, it’s all very similar; you still speed around tracks, air braking around tight corners and memorizing individual layouts of each event, then trying to hit as many speed pads and weapon pick up points on repeat laps as you weave in and out of shortcuts and highways. It’s harder to spot points of interest, for example, and you’ll need better reaction times than the standard third-person camera.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing; the trade-off is an experience that feels more authentic and convincing than it ever has (if anything, the trademark satisfaction of the perfect drift is only heightened in VR), and those slight disadvantages vanish once familiarity sets in. In VR, though, those playful games of tag turn into a war zone; hearing the rattle of machine gun fire shoot down the track or finding yourself caught in the middle of a quake blast has a newfound urgency that makes the kill-focused Combat missions an unexpected highlight.
In fact, the game’s immersion can be so potent that it often feels like it’s scratching the ceiling of what’s possible with PSV, to the point where I caught myself momentarily wondering why my seat wasn’t violently shaking with every rough landing or sharp turn. It’s best played loud, too; the game’s tried and true soundtrack provides the perfect beats to nod along to as you skid around corners like you’re piloting your very own nightclub.
Wipeout’s races aren’t afraid to throw you from side-to-side and shoot you round corners, all of which could be daunting for even the most experienced of VR users. Smartly, toucan also opt to corner off your cockpits peripheral vision a little, limiting your field of view slightly while maintaining immersion.
Ultimately, it’s hard to say a bad thing about the package, though an argument could be made for the need to experience something genuinely new. WipeoutVR is an eccentric mix of new and old; a series delivering on the same kind of regular reliability it has for over two decades but from an entirely fresh perspective.
Everything you love about Wipe out is here but with a new lease of life, from the violent crunch of combat to the twitch-like reactions needed to navigate the many courses from the seat of your vehicle. While he loves games, he's most interested in experiential VR that explores narrative, human connection and other such themes.
Now, prepare to see the world of WipE out in a whole new way as you blast round Omega Collection’s tracks in PS VR. And this isn’t a separate slice of gameplay: toucan race in every track, across every game mode, off or online, with this free PS VR update.
And as toucan now enjoy the game’s blistering soundscape in full 3D audio, this’ll be the most immersive WipE out experience ever. We’re also happy to announce that this update will also include the new remix of “Shake It” from our recent competition winner Viable Rifle.
