Riptide GP™2 Arrives for Windows 8.1

Now you can carve the waves on your desktop or tablet PC!  Riptide GP™2 has splashed onto the Windows Store, in all its water-soaked glory.

RGP2 is cool on tablets, and it's sweet on phones.  But you haven't really experienced it until you've experienced it on the big screen running at a rock-solid framerate in super high resolution!

The Windows 8.1 version uses your Google+ login to connect you to your friends, earn Achievements, and post to Leaderboards.  You can also compete against recordings of your friends' best races in the VR Challenge mode!

Another nice thing about the Windows Store version is you can seamlessly switch between gamepad, keyboard, touch screen, and tilt control methods (depending on what your device supports.)

Please note that you need to have upgraded your device to Windows 8.1 to get the game!

Major RGP2 Update Adds New Game Mode & More!

This week Vector Unit is rolling out the first major new update to Riptide GP™2, and it's a doozy!  With version 1.1, players will be able to change the gender of their rider, unlock and race with a screaming fast new hydro jet, and pit their best times against the world in the new "VR Challenge" game mode.

VR Challenge is a new game mode that allows players to download and race against recordings of their Friends' best performances on any track in the game.  Every time you set a new best time, your performance gets uploaded for your Friends to race against.  It's the ultimate test of wave-shredding skill, and works best when you play against multiple friends from Game Center (iOS) or your Google+ Circles (Android).

In addition to VR Challenge, version 1.1 allows players to select between male and female riders.  The new female rider model has all the same great customization features -- and all the epic stunts -- of the original rider. 

And finally, the new update adds a new blazing fast hydro jet.  Fan favorite Scorpion makes its triumphant return from the first Riptide GP game, now retuned and totally remastered for Riptide GP2.  It's on a par with Manta, and excels in raw acceleration and boost.

Riptide GP2 version 1.1 will be available later this week on both Android and iOS.  

Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ to find out when exactly the update goes live!
