Speeding up

Wipeout 2048 is easily one of the best Vita launch games, but Sony Studios Liverpool intends to tighten it up further with future updates and downloadable content on the way.

Lead designer Karl Jones spoke to Official PlayStation Magazine and cleared up his earlier comment that the game isn't a "one shot approach", talking a little more about the types of things we can expect in future updates:

I guess it’s going to be patches and stuff. DLC always comes across as paid for content. We’re not obviously not going to just do paid for stuff, we’re going to do free stuff too. That’s largely going to be things we didn’t get time to do. For example, the AR museum.

We’re looking into other things to enhance the toolset of the game. So we’re looking on to custom controls, potentially some kind of multiplayer extension. We’ve got more stuff to support Cross Play, which I can’t announce anything about yet. So just lots of smaller different things that’ll be coming out in patches and obviously we’ve got bigger stuff coming out in DLC as well.

Unfortunately Jones didn't say much more about what's on the way, but the enhancements to Cross Play and multiplayer sound intriguing. If the updates go further than just more tracks and vehicles this could get even better, an impressive feat considering our Wipeout 2048 review scored the game 9/10.
