WipeOut 2097, the popular racing game originally developed by Psygnosis for the Sony PlayStation and ported to the Mac by Virtual Programming, is now shipping.
Retailer Mac Games UK sent us word today that they have the game in stock, the first we've heard about this title since we reported in November that the game had gone gold.
While Virtual Programming's web site is a tour de force of stealth marketing, we can provide this description from last November's press release:
Wipeout caused jaws to drop the world over and became an instant classic. Now WipeOut 2097 is poised to take anti-gravity racing completely over the edge. Lightning-fast reflexes rule in this race n chase thriller where your goal is to stay in the lead and defend your craft against other pilots. Negotiate hairpin turns, make gut-wrenching drops and initiate jumps all while blasting your opponents with intimidating weaponry. With faster, smoother graphics, more tracks, more vehicles, and more weapons, WipeOut 2097 sets a new standard in 32-bit gaming!The Mac Games UK web site lists the following minimum system requirements:
The Mac version is true to the original, but also offers full network capability and blistering speed (up to an incredibly challenging 120 fps)!
IMG has contacted Virtual Programming for more information, and we'll keep you updated should they choose to reveal any.
