The guys over at the US PlayStation blog have today revealed that the long awaited exclusive PlayStation 3 title WipEout HD, is on it’s way.
“Your wipEout HD thirst will be quenched on September 25. Yes, that’s right, just 10 days from today. For just $19.99, wipEout HD will be available for download only and includes the following awesomeness:
- Full HD Visuals
- 5 Game Modes – Single Race, Tournament, Time Trial, Speed Lap and Zone Mode
- Online play that supports up to 8 racers competing on a track at a time
- 2-player split screen (horizontally and vertically) offline
- 8 reversible tracks and 12 teams
- Optional use of SIXAXIS motion controls to steer your ship
- A great soundtrack remixed in Dolby 5.1 AND the option for custom playlists that allow you to race to whatever playlists you have on your HDD
- And more, including Trophy support, which we’ll outline for you in a future post – so keep your eyes peeled.”
At $19.99 that works out at around £11.99 for us UK PS3 owners. Roll on September 25th is what I say!
Update: We’ve just had word from SCEE that the UK release of WipEout HD will indeed be priced at £11.99 and will be released on the same day as our American cousins, September 25.
