Today, eight new minutes of fast WipEout Omega Collection has surfaced thanks to PlayStation Access. More specifically, 7 minutes and 49 seconds (I rounded up above) of new splitscreen gameplay.
For those not informed: WipEout: Omega Collection is a collection that includes Wipeout HD, Wipeout Fury, and Wipeout 2048 all remastered for the PS4 and PS4 Pro. Its development is being handled by Sony XDev, Clever Beans, and EPOS Game Studio. Here’s an overview via Sony Interactive Entertainment (the publisher):
WipEout Omega Collection brings together all the content from WipEout HD, WipEout HD Fury and WipEout 2048, enhanced for PS4 and PS4 Pro.
We have been able to take advantage of the power and memory bandwidth of PS4 to rework all textures in the game. Compared to the original games, textures are now clear when viewed up close: you can even read some of the small text on the ships for the first time. As well as a host of improved graphical effects we have also added in HDR which massively improves contrast to what was seen before
WipEout Omega Collection will include 4K HDR support and feature higher resolution and improved graphical quality on PS4 Pro.The additional power of PS4 Pro allows us to render an incredible amount of detail at 4 times the resolution of PS4 and the extra detail this affords us really adds to the gameplay experience, by making it more immersive for the player.
WipEout: Omega Collection launches on PS4 on June 6th in North America and on June 7th in Europe for $39.99 USD. If you preorder the game you will notably receive a complimentary dynamic theme.
