WipEout: Omega Collection for PS4 is a new installment of futuristic racing games dedicated to PlayStation consoles from the birth of the fifth generation. Finally, PS4 received its own Wipeout title, which in essence isn’t a new game, but a compilation of three refurbished games from the previous generation – WipEout HD + Fury add-on from PlayStation 3, and Wipeout 2048 from PlayStation Vita.

Mechanics

Basically, Wipeout is a challenging racing game that allows us to take control of anti-gravity vehicles, taking part in various races battling the time and other pilots. Controlling individual machines (in all, 46) requires agility, while each vehicle retains its individual feel, and his its own set of parameters, such as handling, speed, or even durability – during the races, we can be attacked by other drivers using weapons that can be acquired by collection of markers during the race.

One of the prerequisites to success is learning the course – In all, we are left with 26 race tracks that are known for being complicated, and fast-paced at the same time – the tracks often swerve, shirk, while the vehicles reach breakneck speeds in a matter of seconds. Additionally, time attacks make use of e.g. accelerating fields, location of which have to be known by heart.

Game Modes

In all, WipEout: Omega Collection for PS4 introduces nine gameplay modes, divided between the games in the compilation: Zone, Tournament, Speed Lap, Time Trial, and Single Race from WipEout HD, Zone Battle, Eliminator, and Detonator from Fury, and Career Mode from WipEout 2048. As always, we’ve received a split-screen multiplayer mode and an online mode for up to eight players.

Technical Aspects

All the games have been adapted to modern graphical standards, and were upscaled to HD resolutions (including 4K) working at 60 frames per second. Additionally, the developers introduced new soundtracks.
