By NVIDIA - Thu, Aug 4, 2016

In Riptide GP: Renegade, Vector Unit’s futuristic hydro jet racing series gets a next-gen makeover bringing more vehicles, courses and stunts than ever before.

Now available to download on NVIDIA SHIELD, Riptide GP: Renegade takes the frenetic water-based racing action from the previous games in the series and switches it into overdrive.

Riptide GP: Renegade drops players in the role of a rider taking part in the futuristic and dangerous sport of hydro jet racing in which death-defying competitors race one another across huge, elaborate courses, diving over waterfalls, performing insane stunts and doing whatever it takes to finish in first place.

The game features a deep career mode in which you compete across various courses, race types and boss fights in order to gradually increase your standing on the hydro jet racing circuit. With the XP and cash you earn you can build up a garage full of hydro jet vehicles that transform as you race. You can also customize your vehicles to your liking with performance tweaks and custom decals and even upgrade your character’s stats while learning more stunts as you improve.
