8:08 AM | Vern Xiong | Comment on this story
Freeverse Software today announced that it is selling long awaited futuristic racing game, Wipeout 2097, which wasn't available in the United States until now.
Originally developed by Coderus and published by UK-based Virtual Publishing Ltd., Wipeout 2097 has been available only as an import. Freeverse announced in late April that it had reached an agreement with Virtual Publishing Ltd. to bring the game to the United States, but it wasn't until today that they could release the game.
Wipeout 2097, more widely known as Wipeout XL when it was first released for the PlayStation game console a few years ago was widely regarded as the best of the franchise. In Wipeout XL players control several different futuristic racing vehicles which hover on a variety of different tracks, while collecting powerups like weapons and shields as they battle to get the best time.
Wipeout 2097 on the Mac also features online multiplayer support. It also runs natively in Mac OS X. More great news is that it has game controller support.
Freeverse sells Wipeout 2097 straight from its own Web site store for US$29.95.
