Rocket-powered watercraft will soon race across select screens, when Riptide GP: Renegade makes its debut on a handful of devices.
The sequel to Riptide GP2, and the spiritual successor to Vector Unit’s Hydro Thunder Hurricane, Renegade marks the first time a series entry has been developed with modern consoles and PCs in mind. As such, fans can expect a more visually impressive racer, featuring improved physics as well as other bells and whistles.
“With Riptide GP: Renegade, we’ve cranked up the action to make it more of a classic arcade racer,” says CEO and Creative Director Matt Small. “It still has the speed and dynamic water that players love. But the races are bigger and more explosive, with transforming vehicles, interactive obstacles, and secret shortcuts.”
Combining fast speeds with both “crazy mid-air stunts” and police chases, Riptide GP: Renegade looks to build upon the gameplay of its predecessor in exciting ways. In doing so, it will present a challenging single-player career mode, eight player online races, asynchronous ghost challenges and split-screen multiplayer.
Fans who own a PlayStation 4 or gaming capable PC will be able to download and play this game on July 26th for $14.99, while Apple TV and NVIDIA Shield Android TV users will be able to get in on the action on August 2nd at a price point of $9.99. Xbox One, Windows 10, Android and iOS versions of Riptide GP: Renegade will then follow sometime in the future.
