E3 09; WipEout HD is expanding with new Fury Pack
Studio Liverpool today announced the arrival of a new expansion pack; Fury, hitting the PSN this summer.
Fury delivers eight new tracks, thirteen new ships, and three new game modes. That’s one mighty expansion!
The first new mode is Elimination Game. To complete this mode you must destroy your opponents with the wide range of arsenal available.
Zone Battle is similar to the normal Zone mode but you have opponents and you must decide whether to use the energy you collect on the way to give yourself a boost, or to replenish your ship health. Crash too much and it’s Game Over!
Detonator is very unique as you pilot a new style ship and must destroy mines that fall onto the track in front of you.
The good news is that the expansion will be playable at E3 so our lucky team member attending may just get the opportunity to have a hands-on. We’ll add it to the list of things to do.
Looking at this expansion we wouldn’t be surprised if Sony release a combination of this add-on with the main game and pile it onto one Blu-ray disc for a value price tag, say £29.99/$39.99/€39.99. This would be similar to what we’re seeing with with PAIN.
Oh and have a look at the gallery of pictures below to get you in the mood.
