Wipeout HD Expansion 'Fury' Priced, Dated

Sony has announced the first expansion for Wipeout HD will cost $10 when it is released next Thursday, July 23.

Wipeout HD Fury is set to include "three new race types--Eliminator, Zone Battle and Detonator--12 new tracks, 13 new ships, 6 new music tracks, a redesigned menu system, a new campaign to complete as well a host of new trophies to win." nope "Eliminator mode was relatively easy to get in since it was taken from WipEout Pulse but we wanted to make it even better," said Sony producer Daimion Pinnock. "Someone came up with the idea of having the 180 degree flip, which allows you to flip your ship, fly backwards down the track and fire your weapons at on coming opponents, like the Quake, which I know some people missed being able to do like they could in Pulse."

Zone Battle is essentially an eight-player version of Zone mode, in which "every time you use your zone bar to boost you leave a zone barrier on the track to try and slow down your opponents."
