We’re especially excited to bring this game to Xbox One. Back in 2010 we released our studio’s very first game, Hydro Thunder Hurricane, as an Xbox 360 Summer of Arcade exclusive, and in many ways Renegade is the culmination of work that started way back then.
Being a console racer, the game features single-player modes, ghost racing (Challenge Mode), online multiplayer with up to 8 players, and — one of the most popular features from the Hydro Thunder series — local split-screen multiplayer. In fact, the Xbox One supports up to 6 players for split-screen racing and the Windows 10 version supports up to four players in split screen!
Oh yeah, and did I mention it’s one of the very first 3rd party Xbox Play Anywhere titles? That means shared Gamerscore and Achievements, save game progress, and cross play across Xbox One and Windows 10 — all for the price of a single game.
In many ways Riptide GP: Renegade is a hybrid of our favorite elements of Riptide GP and Hydro Thunder, and the culmination of 8 years of game engine development and racing game experience. We’re very excited to be bringing this franchise back to Xbox, where it all began for us and we hope to see you online on Xbox Live for some arcade racing throwdowns!
