wipEout Rush is now available for download and is playable in selected regions, on Android and iOS devices. The game, which has been developed by Amuzo Games and has been published by Rogue Games is available for download in Great Britain, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Switzerland, and Thailand. It was announced in 2021 that the popular franchise will be making its foray into mobile platforms.
This game will combine the fast, futuristic look of the classic series with a new comic-book-style aesthetic and the ever-popular merge gameplay.
In the game, players take on the responsibilities of a manager by managing the time of their ship’s launch and also its weapons. They have to add different abilities and power-ups to their crafts during the race. This is to make sure they finish first. Unlike the original wipEout games, players do not take control of antigravity crafts and engage in racing themselves.
The game has been perfectly built for mobile platforms where players can merge “loot” of the same type. This is to craft better ones and also 3D-Print various weapons. Like most mobile games, there are multiple currencies and timers in it. It also follows the model of watching ads to boost certain actions.
Disappointing initial reaction to the game
Initial reactions from players are not quite good. According to most of them, they wanted to experience the unique antigravity racing of the wipEout franchise. Mobile games become popular due to their quick and precise gameplay. Games that provide these get the attention of the players quickly.
Another thing that players hate in online games is the predatory form of micro-transactions. This is an issue with many online games now. The publishers of wipeout Rush have a lot of work to do in terms of gameplay and micro-transactions to get more players.
However, it goes without mentioning that popular franchises that come into the mobile game industry from other platforms mostly retain their original game mechanics. This is one of the reasons for their success, e.g. PUBG Mobile, COD Mobile. As of now, no announcements have been made regarding the worldwide launch of wipEout Rush. Everyone will be keeping an eye on how the game is received when the game is released globally.
