Ever since WipEout Omega Collection (2017) added support for PSVR back in March, it became the de facto gold standard of anti-grav VR racing on the platform. Now, users looking to pop their head in to see what all the fuss is about should have their eyeballs pointed to PSN starting tomorrow, as Sony is tossing out a free WipEout Omega Collection demo replete with PSVR support.

Announced on Sony’s PS blog, you’ll be able to play on both PS4 and PSVR. For VR users, the demo includes the traditional Feisar ship, or the new Feisar VR ship and a single race on two different tracks from HD and 2048 modes.

Sony recommends new players stick to the default ‘Lock Camera To Cockpit’ controls, which ought to reduce artificial motion-based nausea (read: simulator sickness). While that’s probably the msot comfortable way to play, the ‘Lock Camera to Pilot’ mode is going to give you what you came for: the first-person experience of screaming around corners and looping around inside an anti-grav ship.

We went hands-on with the free PSVR update, and while the risk of nausea is real using the more immersive modes, it’s nothing short of a smart and skillful adaptation that brings PSVR users what they’ve been pining for: an honest-to-goodness VR WipEout.

Check out the full race below to get a peek into what lays ahead.

        When you mention the devil as satan your fully acknowledging the bible where the devils origins come from.Your believing what the bible says and what Jesus says about the satan you appear to follow.That is where the devil came from,the bible and kicked out of heaven with one third of the angels by Michael the archangel.You seem to follow it and believe it.That is the origin of the devil that you seem to be committed to in all your obsessive replys to me.

          Imagine there’s no heaven
          It’s easy if you try
          No hell below us
          Above us only skyrim (oops)

    I picked up Omega and borrowed a psVR headset just to try it out, and while it runs very smoothly, the loss of visual clarity means that the other ships are simply seen as their exhaust glow. It’s still quite playable, and the adjustable shroud keeps nausea from kicking in even in the wildest tracks.

    But it unfortunately doesn’t add anything to the game for me. Cockpit games suffer from this issue no matter what, though. The cockpit looks great but everything outside the ship is so far away that any 3D effect is lost, or is visually indistinct. VR games, for me, are best when everything is close to the user, and use motion controls to fiddle with stuff. Maybe when higher resolution displays become the norm, that will change.

      Don’t mean to question you, but are we playing the same game? (Or maybe your headset was not fixed on properly / poorly configured)? I have been playing this over the last few days and the visuals are outstanding, the other ships overtaking are as clear as day.

      I agree, it feels like there is this oil Vaseline like smear on the entire environment. If all I ever tried was PSVR, I think I would be singing it’s praises of how great it looks.

  • HybridEnergy

    Oh just release it for PC VR so it doesn’t look and play like dung and I’ll care.

    • Mike Taylor

      Yeah, play it on a Rift and try and see it through the screen door and god rays.

      • HybridEnergy

        I don’t have a screen door on my Vive Pro
        PS: still would look better on a RIFT

        • Blankfrak

          Mmm….read a few of your other comments. You do seem to mention you have a Vive pro a lot and you seem to enjoy bragging about how well off you and how comparatively poor others are. Quite frankly, if you don’t mind me saying, you come across as a bit of an arsehole.

          • HybridEnergy

            Haven’t you heard ? Assholes get the girls. I have a OG & Pro Vive, Rift, and a Acer MS headset. Stick to topic, I hate exclusives, sony or anyone otherwise. Specially in Vr where the market is too small.

      • XboxRules

        mike gaylor Nah, wipeout is garbage and only the PC has real VR right now.
