Wipeout will get ‘reimagined’ as a cellular recreation the place you handle as an alternative of drive
Wipeout, the fast-paced, futuristic racing collection that’s synonymous with PlayStation, is coming to iOS and Android cellular gadgets later in 2021. The brand new recreation is named Wipeout Rush, and sadly, it won’t be what you’re after when you’ve adored earlier entries within the collection.
The sport, developed by Rogue, is a card-based racing recreation that doesn’t truly put you within the driver’s seat. As an alternative, you’ll be the staff supervisor of racers who will get to do all the enjoyable driving when you’re coping with playing cards. The sport guarantees to dive into the lore of Wipeout, and I’m most trying ahead to discovering out why the participant can’t drive. Did they lose their license?
Right here’s an outline of Wipeout Rush, as famous on Rogue’s website.
For followers of the collection, Wipeout Rush is bringing a great deal of new lore by means of collectables and story. Gamers will be capable of unlock collectable playing cards to be taught extra in regards to the ships, groups, pilots, and tracks of the Wipeout world as they progress by means of an interesting single-player marketing campaign informed by means of thrilling animated comics. Wipeout Rush will embody each Fast Race and Championship Cup recreation modes full with 5 completely different tracks, 60 iconic Wipeout ships, a variety of acquainted weapons, 12 Championship Cups every with their very own boss, and bundles of collectables.
For a second there, I imagined how nice a Wipeout recreation for telephones may look and play, particularly now that there are a number of telephones with quick refresh fee shows (the iPhone 13 Professional is probably the most notable addition to that group not too long ago), in addition to strong cellular controllers just like the Spine One and Razer Kishi.
I’m keen to offer this recreation a shot when it comes out, and it may very well be enjoyable in its personal method, however it’s been some time since I’ve so shortly gone from being enthusiastic about one thing to simply being slightly unhappy.
