Racing fans start your engines, as the futuristic world of Riptide is back once more with Riptide GP: Renegade.
Available to purchase right now on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC (thanks to Xbox Play Anywhere), all at the price of £8.39, Renegade will let you put your racing skills to the test once more as the rocket-powered hydro jets return.
With breathtaking water physics showcasing splash-tastic spray effects and much more, you’ll be casting your skills to the spotlight as you dodge your way past Police boats and Drones through vast interactive race environments full of secret shortcuts and a number of animated objects.
Career Mode makes a return for the third outing in the Riptide series, as players battle their way through a variety of race types with boss fights now present as you go on your quest to master the waterways of the underground hydro racing jet circuit. Earn XP and cash to upgrade as you customise your hydro jet, unlocking new stunts and increasing your rider’s performance along the way.
Each of the blistering hydro jets come with full customisation options as well as transformations that change whilst you ride.
Those looking for some online racing action to add to the usual split-screen experience will be happy to see the inclusion of up to 8-player multiplayer or couch co-op for up to 6 players in split-screen. Or go head to head with those on mobile platforms as cross platform action comes into play.
If you’re looking for your fill of water–sport racing then make sure you head over to the Xbox One games store now. Our review will be live soon too!
