SCEA Details Big Wipeout HD Update
If you need an excuse to dive back into the mind-bending speed of Wipeout HD, you need to start it up and download the v1.30 update that features a whole horde of new additions and enhancements!
You can find all the details over at the official PlayStation blog, and as you can see, the update spans the categories of Online Ranking, Podium Screen & Online Badges, and various multiplayer options. As the post says, "with over 50 ranks to progress through, there will be a new edge to online racing in Wipeout HD." Think you can obtain the prestigious honor of Wipeout Legend? At the very least, you'll want to nab one of the 33 available online badges, and if you want to bring other people into the action, you'll be happy to know that v1.30 comes with game invites! You can watch races that are already in progress, you can choose to create a Public, Friends-Only or Invite-Only match, you can opt to turn barrel rolls and the Pilot Assist on or off, and there's even more that awaits you. These are the kind of significant updates that greatly enhances the base appeal of a game; just look at the downloadable content that has shown up for Burnout Paradise. Sony won't be ignoring one of the best PSN exclusives to date, so be thankful for the update!
Just bear in mind that although the computer can always pose a stiff challenge, there's nothing tougher than competing against the best humans in the world. So if you think you've got the reflexes and the skill, take full advantage of Wipeout HD by updating to v1.30. It's available today, April 8.
