Sony Liverpool, the developer of Wipeout 2048 for the PlayStation Vita, has confirmed that lots of new features and content will be added to the game, both as free updates and as premium DLC, in the near future.Among the Vita’s launch lineup of games, Wipeout 2048 is one of the most impressive, delivering a futuristic racing experience on the small console just like on bigger platforms, such as the PlayStation 3.
Sony Liverpool, the game’s developer, has now confirmed, through the voice of its Lead Designer, Karl Jones, that fresh content and features are coming soon.
"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," Jones told OPM UK.
"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."
Jones confirmed that plenty of features were planned for Wipeout 2048, including the already detailed Zombie mode, but were dropped because the studio needed to release the racing game alongside the PlayStation Vita earlier this month.
Now, after the game’s actual release, the Liverpool studio can complete some of its biggest ideas and bring them to the game as DLC.
"Deadlines are strict, you've got to hit your dates, but there's so much stuff that developers want to get into their games that some stuff got to get cut. The beauty of it now is that it's not always cut forever. There's DLC but there's also free stuff you can patch in, stuff that's 90% finished before launch that need that extra 10%, you can release that stuff for free."
Feedback is being gathered by the studio for these future updates and DLC, so expect the voices of fans to be factored in before these new things appear.
