WipEout Omega Collection: First Look at New Ship, the Tigron K-VSR

See the aggressive Tigron K-VSR in action in a brand new trailer for PS4's upcoming antigrav racer remaster.

When WipEout Omega Collection hits PS4 on June 6, you’ll be able to take your pick from the full range of classic WipEout teams: Feisar, Auricom, Mirage, Pirahana. Today, we’re really excited to unveil a brand new additional vehicle making its WipEout debut – the Tigron K-VSR. See it in action in the brand new trailer at the top of this post.

Here’s a little background on what you can expect from the Tigron K-VSR:

“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 favor 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.

“The armour plating takes it cues from sloped armour; angled faces act like deflectors, causing kinetic energy penetrators like rockets and gun fire to glance off the plating and away from the centre of the craft.”

  • NICE. Used to always go with Piranha. Looks like this could be my next ship.

  • Pretty Hyped to see this large collection WipeOut Works in one release. Will there be any new music tracks?

  • Please Tell me the USA is also getting the Real Life Anti Grav Collectors Edition. Or is it a EU only? Or will it be a PlayStation Gear Store release?

  • I’m a loyalist. I can’t just up and switch companies now.. That ship will sadly remain unused in my game.

  • Where is the closed beta sign up?

    Thanks!

  • When will the VR patch be coming to the game?

  • I just watched someone unbox a “press only” floating version of this ship. It was beautiful. Why can’t we be given a chance to buy nice things like this? Most of the people who end up with these nice little bribes aren’t even fans of the game. Meanwhile I can’t even get a steel book for this game in Canada and have had to order my Wipeout t-shirts from the UK like a punk.

    If you go through the trouble of making something that cool – make a few more and let us buy some.

  • will there be a sweet collectors edition with that floating ship?

  • Without VR support I will not support this release. A massive mistake to not reward loyal consumers and early adopters of your VR system. Do you want all those articles about ySony not supporting VR to ring true?

  • Is the Steelbook edition coming to the US? If not, please consider it! It’s so beautiful and I would get in a heartbeat!

    • I know, I really wish we could get the steelbook treatment or the floating ship press version. I would so buy that.

  • so… I’m guessing still no 3D integration into this :(?

  • So I wonder since I bought the wipout hd and fury for the previous console, will I have to pay for this version for my PS4 pro??

  • Ah, I used to play this on my Ps Vita. Now it’s going to release on Ps4! There better be some kind of collectors or deluxe edition

    I was just playing Wipeout XL, on my phone in an emulator this morning. Original PS1 will not boot up, so this is the only way I can play my game. I am very happy this is coming. Just wish the songs Firestarter and loops of fury make it into the new version.

  • Why does the UK or international community end up getting better swag for this game? From 2 separate places UK and International stores get either a collectable steel book or a classic Playstation collective sleeve for the game.

    Sleeve reported news: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-05-10-ps4-wipeouts-wraparound-sleeve-is-psx-nostalgia-supreme

    Gamestop and Amazon USA seem to just have the standard cases for the product.

  • Does the Van Uber ship only come with the digital version? Or does it come with the physical version as well? If the former, will the Van Uber ship be purchasable as DLC? Will the Omega Collection have any other DLC?
