WipEout HD is a futuristic racing video game developed by Sony Studio Liverpool and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3. It is the eighth installment of the WipEout series and was first released on the PlayStation Network on 25 September 2008 in both Europe and North America, and on 29 October 2008 in Japan. A major expansion pack titled WipEout HD Fury was released worldwide via the PlayStation Network worldwide on 23 July 2009. A retail version was later made available in Europe on 16 October 2009. The game revolves around players competing in the FX350 anti-gravity racing league, and features the same race tracks from the PlayStation Portable games WipEout Pure and WipEout Pulse, although the content has been upgraded to render 1080p visuals in 60 frames per second.


Only options that deviate from the default configuration to ensure best performance are listed below. The full list of default options is available here.

GPU configuration

Setting Option Notes
Write color buffers On Fixes overbright graphics in some tracks.

Advanced configuration

Setting Option Notes
Driver wake-up delay 250 Setting this value to 250us should fix random crashes, you may need to set it a bit higher on low-end systems but don't go too high as it will hurt performance. We recommend staying below 500.
Vblank rate 120 Allows framerates of up to 120fps. Higher will work however the camera will start swinging wildly vertically as the framerate increases.

Known Issues

If using the digital edition of WipEout HD and you would like to use the HD Fury DLC, please install all available updates before installing the DLC as installing the DLC first may break the game.
