To celebrate Wipeout Omega collection officially going gold, Sony has created a super-special edition of the game — details of which have yet to be revealed — which comes with a model of the Tigron FX350 racer. Better yet, that model uses a clever magnet system to hover much like the anti-gravity ships do in the various Wipeout games.
The Wipeout Omega Collection (stylized as wipE’out) brings together the gravity-defying racing gameplay you loved from Wipeout HD, Wipeout HD Fury and Wipeout 2048, in a new and enhanced version designed for the PS4 Pro. It features improved graphics with HDR and dynamic 4K support, as well as smoother frame rates. And now a fancy ship model to celebrate that.
The ship comes with a matte black paint job, potentially letting owners paint it how they want themselves. However, whether you do so or not, the Tigron FX350 will rotate slowly atop its ‘anti-gravity’ platform thanks to some clever magnets and a discrete power source.
The base it hovers above is mirrored and features some tasteful LED lighting to really bring your little ship model to life.
Sony has announced a few different versions of the Omega Collection to help celebrate its release. There’s the standard digital version, which comes with a digital artbook and a new Van Uber ship along with four racing team avatars. There’s also a steelbook physical edition of the game. The ship doesn’t seem to come with either of those, so it’s possible that what we see in the video is another special edition of the game.
For now though all we can do is wait to see what Sony says about it. It suggests we keep an eye on its blog, so that’s what we’ll do. We’ll update this story when we learn more about it.
Wipeout Omega Collection is set for release on June 7, exclusively on PS4 and PS4 Pro.
