Now Playing: GS News Update: Sony Cuts PS4's PSVR Bundle Prices Permanently

Wipeout racers are getting the chance to experience the game in a whole new way for free. If you own the Wipeout Omega Collection on PS4, the latest free update gets you the ability to play the game in virtual reality. Of course, you also need a PSVR setup already, but if you have one all you have to do to play is update your game and switch on your headset.

Wipeout Omega Collection is a testament to the Wipeout series's frantic fun. It includes a remastered version of 2008's Wipeout HD, along with its Fury expansion and the much-improved Wipeout 2048. The free update gives you the chance to play the entire Omega Collection in VR, on any game mode. Three new VR-exclusive ships have also been added in HD, Fury, and 2048 classes. You can check out more Wipeout VR action in the trailer above.

To further boost the VR experience, the game includes full 3D audio and a new remix of "Shake It." This was provided by the winner of a recent Wipeout contest to create the best remix of the one of the game's signature songs.

The Wipeout Omega Collection released last year, bringing big graphical updates to the games, running at 1080p on PS4 and dynamic 4K resolution on the PS4 Pro. In GameSpot's review of Wipeout Omega Collection, Miguel Concepcion said each of the three games exuded their own style and simulation in their own distinct ways, while "collectively [showcasing] the best elements of franchise's engrossing racing and silky smooth visuals. And even though it doesn't completely scratch the itch that only a completely new PS4 sequel can offer, this collection is easily the next best thing."
