If you're one of the proud owners of WipEout HD
for the PS3, an update for the game will be available tomorrow free of charge. The update includes several new features to the multiplayer including an online ranking system, podium screen for after races, 33 different online badges, game invites, and the ability to watch races already in progress. After acquiring the update you can also choose whether or not you want to disable HUD weapon hints, barrel rolls, and pilot assist. You will also have the option of changing the number of laps, and whether you want your game to be friends/invite only, or public.
If you're unfamiliar with the game, WipEout HD
is an intense downloadable racing game, exclusive to the PS3. In the game you pilot an anti-gravity craft as you race against computer or player contolled opponents, alone, split-screen, or online.
