Psygnosis’s futuristic racing game WipEout is well-loved and lauded by the long-running series’ beloved fanbase, but as is the case with no shortage of older titles these days, preservation is something of a concern. It seems, however, that the community is taking matters into its own hands on that front.

Recently, game preservation specialists Forest of Illusion confirmed on Twitter that, thanks to work sent in by a user called March42, the source code for the original WipEout on the PS1, as well as its Windows port, has been released online for all to dive into and use. Forest of Illusion points out that it is currently unknown if the sources are fully buildable or not, and that the release is solely for preservation purposes- though the latter should really go without saying.

If nothing else, it is great to see the community coming together to preserve their beloved titles, especially given how little importance game preservation is given by the actual publishers responsible for those games.
