Wipeout 2 tumbling out this holiday
Activision launching new edition of ABC's obstacle course game show on 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS, DS.
Activision isn't being deterred by a single Wipeout. Today, the publisher announced Wipeout 2, the latest game based on ABC's physical humiliation-based reality game show. A Kinect-enabled Xbox 360 version and Move-supported PlayStation 3 edition of Wipeout 2 will join installments on the Wii, DS, and 3DS this holiday.
Wipeout 2 brings the TV show's accident-prone obstacle courses to gamers' living rooms with more than 50 unique challenges. The obstacles will be tailored to the summer and winter seasons, with players navigating snow, ice, and foam in addition to trademark challenges such as Sucker Punch Wall and Big Balls. Show hosts John Anderson and John Henson will again voice the action.
Activision aims to tailor each edition of Wipeout 2 to its platform. As an example, PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers will be able to use their respective motion-sensing inputs to hurdle snow or paintballs at other players while navigating courses. Meanwhile, the handheld installments will feature a pass-and-play hot seat mode.
