Rogue, a leading publisher of independent video games, has announced a new WIPEOUT game for iOS and Android devices named wipEout Rush which will release in 2022. This upcoming card-based racing game has been developed by champion mobile developer Amuzo. This game will combine the fast, futuristic look of the classic series with a new comic-book-style aesthetic and popular merge gameplay to deliver a never-before-seen Wipeout experience for players across the world.
“And we’ve poured a lot of love into the presentation, which includes loads of iconic ships and tracks, a new comic book-inspired narrative, a fitting electronica soundtrack, and gorgeous visuals that run at 60 frames per second on modern hardware,” he added.
Enjoy the classic anti-gravity racing experience in wipEout Rush
Wipeout Rush will let the players have the classic anti-gravity racing experience as they will have to get into the role of the team manager where winning is determined by decisions rather than reflexes. In this game, players will be able to unlock collectible cards to learn more about the ships, teams, pilots, and tracks, which are part of an engaging single-player campaign that will be driven through exciting animated comics.
With stunning 3D graphics, Wipeout Rush will offer 60 FPS gameplay on mobile devices. Moreover, players will be selecting the right ships, as well as ensuring they are properly upgraded and equipped to win each race. For this, the devs have brought back 60 iconic ships from the original games.
As Rogue Games have said, they’ll bring the best mobile experience for the Wipeout Rush players. To make things more interesting, the game includes fluid merge gameplay for the first time that will allow players to merge anti-gravity ships to unlock new, and more capable vehicles. With players moving up in the league, they’ll earn currency to unlock new challenges, weapons, and upgrades.
Along with all these features, Wipeout Rush will include both Quick Race and Championship Cup game modes. These modes will come with 5 different tracks, a wide range of familiar weapons, 12 Championship Cups each with its own boss, and bundles of collectibles. Besides all these, the games’ original soundtrack is composed by veteran Sony sound designer and composer Alastair Lindsay, which is very much interesting to hear.
wipEout Rush continues the legacy of the Wipeout series
The initial Wipeout game was released in 1995 for PC, PlayStation, and Sega Saturn. The series was well acclaimed by the players because of its fast-paced, and futuristic anti-gravity hovercraft racing. A total of nine games have been released under this series.
The last two titles, Wipeout HD and Wipeout 2048 were released in 2008 and 2012 respectively. Also, a remastered version of these two was released as a collection in 2017 named Wipeout OMEGA COLLECTION for PlayStation 4. And now the first mobile game of this widely popular series is all set to make its way onto the devices later this year.
When will wipEout Rush release globally
