The Wipeout series can trace its origins back to the original PlayStation; while entries in the series have appeared on PC, Sega Saturn, and Nintendo 64, it’s commonly regarded as a Sony franchise. Every entry from 1999’s Wipeout 3 onwards has been exclusive to Sony platforms.
Wipeout: Omega Collection, brings together three of the best games in the franchise and ports them to PlayStation 4. This remaster collects 2008’s Wipeout HD, its 2009 expansion, HD Fury, and 2012’s Wipeout 2048 and gives them a fresh coat of high-definition paint. The games target 60 FPS at full HD resolution on PlayStation 4, and 4K resolution on the PS4 Pro.
You can check out the trailer for the collection, which shows off the series’ signature sense of blistering speed, wild power-ups, and crisp graphics below.
Wipeout: Omega Collection releases June 6 for PlayStation 4. For more on the racing remaster, check out the first trailer for the game, which was shown at PSX.

Wipeout is one of the fastest racers on the market, right up there with F-Zero and Fast RMX. The only thing holding this HD re-release is the fact that split-screen multiplayer is limited to only two players. You can hop online with up to eight racers, but we were hoping to group up on the couch and race to the finish on a single screen.
