Synopsis and Features
It’s the year 2048 and it’s been over 10 years since Pierre Belmondo changed how people view modern-day racing. Rewriting the laws of physics and science, Pierre gave life to a live working anti-gravity generator. Powered with this generator vehicles could defy the laws of gravity and race like never before. As technology grew, so did racing. Now participating in the first ever Anti-Gravity Racing Championships (A.G.R.C.), you will race against the best of the best in anti-gravity racing to prove you are better than everyone else.
Developed by Studio Liverpool and published by Sony Computer Entertainment, Wipeout 2048 tries to give you a glimpse of how racing could be in the future. The single-player mode will introduce you to the various new input control methods that you can make use of to defeat your opponents.
Using the touchpad situated at the back of the console, you can activate weapons with a single touch. The addition of the optional tilt allows you to turn your vehicles by tilting the console to the left or right, according to the situation. You can shoot your enemies into oblivion by just saying what weapons you want to use as the game features a voice activated system to equip weapons.
The game primarily focuses on the first 3 years of A.G.R.C. As you win races you will earn power-ups such as homing missiles, mines, speed boosts and many other things. You can explore the game’s universe by tearing through the 10 new race tracks featured in the game. One of the tweaks added to the game allows you to skip a level if you are unable to finish it at that moment. You can continue playing by selecting a new event and then come back to the skipped event whenever you want.
You can test your driving skills by entering 2 specific race events that include combat events and zone events. There are other events too, but these events are specifically designed to improve your driving technique. In combat events as the name suggests you must target your opponents with weapons, while in zone events you must concentrate on not crashing your vehicle.
You can team together with your classmates or office buddies and win matches together as Wipeout 2048 supports co-op multiplayer. The game also allows you to compete with PS3 owners as it provides access for Cross-Play multiplayer. You can take the game online by challenging the best players from across the world by playing 8-player races. Several DLC packs are available that add more race tracks and ships to the game.
