Vector Unit was excited today to reveal that a new water racing title, known as Riptide GP: Renegade, is heading to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q2 of 2016. To celebrate this announcement, they have shared a new video, which you can check out below:
The game features futuristic environments players can race through as they pull off crazy mid-air stunts and boost their way to the lead. Players will be able to compete in the single player Career mode or against other players online and in split screen local multiplayer.
Matt Small, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Vector Unit, stated, “We’ve been hard at work getting Riptide GP: Renegade ready for series fans and new players alike. This version has been developed from the ground up for next-gen consoles. We kept what worked, but completely retuned the mechanics and the graphics engine, and we can’t wait for players to get their hands on the game.”
Here’s a quick “About”, as presented on the official press release:
Riptide GP: Renegade is a next-gen water racer where armored riders kick out death-defying stunts over massive waterfalls, outrun cops, and boost at breakneck speeds across surging waves. Evade police boats and drones while blasting through vast interactive race environments packed with interactive elements, secret shortcuts, and animated obstacles. Battle your way through a variety of race types and boss fights to reach the top of the underground hydro jet racing circuit. Earn XP and cash to upgrade and customize your hydro jet, unlock new stunts, and increase your rider’s performance. Compete online against the best players around the world – or against your pals in split screen local multiplayer matches (with a mix of human and AI racers) and collect and upgrade a garage full of blistering fast hydro jets that transform while you ride them, all while enjoying it on 1080p / 60fps.
