Other platform releases which include Xbox One, Windows 10, iOS, and Android will be coming shortly after.

Riptide GP: Renegade is the first game in the popular water racing series to be developed from the ground up for modern consoles and desktop PCs.
“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.”
In Riptide GP: Renegade, players race rocket-powered watercraft through futuristic environments while pulling off crazy mid-air stunts, outrunning cops, and boosting their way to the front of the pack.
Game modes include the challenging single player Career mode, 8 player online races, asynchronous ghost racing challenges, and split screen local multiplayer. The game will also run at 1080p/ 60fps, and include support for online multiplayer gameplay which will allow you to mix both human and AI racers.
