WipEout Omega Collection Goes Gold
Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that WipEout: Omega Collection, a remastered collection that includes Wipeout HD, Wipeout Fury, and Wipeout 2048 and that is set to launch for PS4 on June 6, 2017 in North America, and on June 7th in Europe, has gone gold.
For those that don’t know, “gone gold” or “goes gold” comes from the term “gold master,” which is a version of the game deemed good enough to be shipped to store. So, when a game goes gold, it means development is done (or however “done” a game can be these days) , and the game is ready to be sold.
The news came via the following tweet from Sony XDev:

The collection is being handled by Sony XDev, Clever Beans and EPOS Game Studios. Sony has said that all textures of the game have been reworked and improved substantially, all of the sound effects have been remastered, and 28 licensed music tracks from famous musical artists — such as Swedish House Mafia, Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy — have been added.
The collection also boasts PS4 Pro support, with 4K HDR support. It is said, the additional power of the PS4 Pro allows the game to be rendered at an incredible amount of detail at 4 times the resolution of the standard PS4. Both the standard PS4 and PS4 Pro versions will come packed with a crisp 60FPS.
Each game within the collection will come with its own career mode, as well as a racebox mode which lets you tweak and customize your own races. All also contain split screen local multiplayer and online multiplayer for up to eight players. You can race in tournaments, single races, time trials or in the famous zone mode.
WipEout: Omega Collection will cost $39.99 USD when it launches. If you preorder the game you will receive a complimentary dynamic theme.
