9:40 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

U.K. based Virtual Programming have announced that WipeOut 2097 has gone to golden master and should be released in time for Christmas. A super speedy racing game, Wipeout was originally published for the Sony PlayStation in 1996 by Psygnosis. Now Virtual Programming has brought this award-winning game to the Mac.

Here's a brief description:

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!
According to Virtual Programming, the Mac version will have full network capability. The game will run on Mac OS 9 and is carbonized for Mac OS X. The game requires an iMac (revision B or later), G3, or G4 with 64 MB of RAM. An OpenGL 3D hardware accelerated card such as a Rage Pro or better is also required.
