Sony announced WipEout Rush, a new title in the racing series coming to smartphones and tablets iOS e Android in the early months of 2022.
The announcement came through IGN colleagues, who shared the first official trailer of the game, which you can admire in the player above.
WipEout Rush will offer a particular mix, halfway between a racing game and a card game, where apparently we will have to “manage” our racing car rather than actually driving it. Includes 60 racing ships from previous chapters, one campagna single player with 12 Championship Cup races in five different scenarios. Publisher Rogue Games claims the game will run at 60 frames per second on modern devices.
The campaign also includes a comic-influenced narrative that will give pilots more personality. The score is composed by Sony veteran composer Alastair Lyndsay. Below is the first gallery of official images:
The publisher Rogue Games is aware of the great expectation of fans for a new chapter and does not want to disappoint expectations “If I want to experience that kind of visceral, immersive and intense racing experience, I will find it by continuing to wait for it (return) on PlayStation“said Rogue CEO Matt Casamassina.”But at the same time, we’re happy that we were able to reimagine wipEout for mobile devices with some new and fun game mechanics, as well as beautiful graphics.“.
“We hope that fans will approach this game with an open mind, because, while different, we are proud to refocus the WipEout franchise in a new version. And we poured a lot of love into the presentation, which includes loads of historical ships and tracks from the franchise, a new comic book-inspired storytelling, a saga-appropriate electronic soundtrack, and gorgeous graphics that run at 60 frames per second on modern devices.“.
