In WipEout 2048 the action takes place on the streets of Nova State City as you tear through ten brand new tracks, each one filled with unique twists and turns to keep you on your toes as you battle for supremacy in the Anti-Gravity Racing Championships.
All races in WipEout 2048 have Pass and Elite Pass criteria. For example, in the first racing season, a Pass is gained by simply finishing at least fifth, whereas an Elite Pass is only gained if you finish first, earning you lots more experience points, which in turn unlock new ships.
Alongside classic WipEout Race events, there are several other modes for you to get to grips with including Combat, Zone and Time Trial. In Race events the goal is simple: out-speed, out-gun and out-smart your opponents to the finish line first using your ship's capabilities and a series of attacking and defensive weapons, such as shields and missiles.
Combat events require you to damage and destroy as many rivals as possible in the allotted time. In a Zone event, your skills are put to the ultimate test as you try to survive for as long as you possibly can as your speed increases with each new lap of the track.
The goal in a Time Trial is to complete the race in the fastest possible time to gain either a Pass or Elite Pass. Remember, Elite Pass equals more experience points, so always try and aim for first place.
