Wipeout in the Zone hitting Kinect this summer
Activision and ABC Entertainment Group have announced Wipeout in the Zone is coming this summer to Kinect.
Based on the ABC show Wipeout, Wipeout in the Zone will be the latest release in the franchise and will have players “running, ducking, dodging and wiping out,” using Kinect.
“The ABC hit show Wipeout continues to thrill a growing fan base of viewers with hilarious new obstacles. Everyone who watches the show wishes they could try the obstacle course – and now this is their chance!” said Activision’s David Oxford. “The show is all about absurd movement and well-timed balance, so it’s a perfect fit for a Kinect game.”
The game features over thirty obstacles where players will try to run the entire course in one shot, all the while leaping over water using the “Big Balls” and maneuvering to avoid being pummeled by the “Smack Wall Sweeper.”
Commentary from the show’s hosts, John Anderson, John Henson and Jill Wagner will be included.
The release of the game will coincide with the new season of the ABC show.
