Sony Interactive Entertainment has revealed the “Tigron K-VSR,” a brand new additional team and vehicle making its debut in WipEout Omega Collection.
Here are a few details about the ship, via the PlayStation Blog:
“The design philosophy of the Tigron K-VSR is ‘sheer brute force’. It eschews advanced tech and handling in favour of high speed and pure aggression.
“The shape and layout of the craft consists of a central chassis and cockpit with two longer outer arms that have two design functions. They allow for aggressive ramming and shunting while keeping the central chassis and pilot safe from collisions. This design feature makes the ship very heavy, hindering its acceleration and handling but does work in its favour when it reaches higher speeds, turning it into a juggernaut.
“Due to the size and weight of the craft, it needs a very large engine to push the ship to the desired speed. Having a pulse ram jet of this size proved to be highly unstable, so the design team got around this by using one large turbo pump that that feeds the thrust into four smaller chambers, allowing for a safer distribution of force and also giving it its distinctive ‘cluster thruster’ design.”
Due out for PlayStation 4 on June 6 in North America and June 7 in Europe, WipEout Omega Collection brings together all the content from WipEout HD, WipEout HD Fury and WipEout 2048, and enhances it for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. All of the games’ textures have been reworked, and are now clear to the point that you can even read some of the small text on the ships when viewed up close. In addition to improved graphical effects, the game also supports HDR. The game also adds 28 licensed music tracks from famous musical artists including Swedish House Mafia, Chemical Brothers, and The Prodigy. Read more about the game here.
