Wipeout Omega Collection Gets A PS4 Trailer And Release Date

The Wipeout series has long been known as a worthwhile, fast-paced racer on PlayStation by fans and those who follow the genre, but has also been known as "PlayStation F-Zero" by those who perhaps don't. Regardless, XDev and SIE's upcoming Wipeout Omega Collection has since-inception aimed to bring the series to 4K on PS4, an endgame that we now know will arrive on June 6th of this year.

Alongside the title's release date announcement came a trailer, uploaded to the PlayStation Youtube channel to highlight the visual flourishes and vast resolution boost being awarded the three included renditions: Wipeout HD, Wipeout HD Fury (an expansion pack), and Wipeout 2048.

Sony also elaborated on what its been able to do regarding Wipeout enhancements, citing PS4 memory bandwidth advantages among the leeway granted by more powerful hardware.

 

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.

If you haven't already gathered as much, Wipeout Omega Collection will be available on PS4 starting June 6th. Given that F-Zero is currently dormant and Wipeout as a series genuinely deserves your attention, the collection seems well worth checking out.
