Only a couple a months ago Wipeout in the Zone, the game based on the popular TV show, got released. Now Activision announces in a press release that the sequel is following and it will be out this holiday season. While we are more than excited that there will be yet another Kinect game, I cannot help but wonder if the bugs from the Wipeout in the Zone have been fixed for Wipeout 2 given the very short time frame between the two releases.
Wipeout 2 press release
Wipeout 2 will offer updated, outrageous course designs across all platforms with obstacles and effects taken straight from the show’s summer and winter seasons. Players must navigate around snow, ice, foam, and fan-favorite obstacles like the Sucker Punch Wall and Big Balls; which are making their triumphant returns alongside more than 50 others. Extended gameplay on all systems encourages even more interaction and participation with family and friends. Once again, all the wild and crazy action is narrated by the show’s hosts John Anderson and John Henson. The PlayStation Move and Kinect for Xbox 360 titles will offer gamers the ability to taunt and toss paintballs and snowballs at family and friends while they run the course.
I’m excited that the video game series is evolving just like our show. Players will experience all the fun of the new winter and summer courses without being sore in the morning!
- Matt Kunitz, Wipeout’s Creator and Executive Producer
Working with ABC on the Wipeout titles has been a tremendous success. Their integration of the game series into the show has been outstanding and their contributions to the game make it truly appealing for fans. We look forward to bringing more great Wipeout experiences to families.
