We love our fans! And we love our fans even more when they send in photos of themselves in our swag for us to post.
Hey fans, Riptide GP2 for Xbox One is now live and available for download from the Xbox Store.
Riptide GP™2 is now available for Windows Phone 8.1! Race across futuristic waterways, collect a garage full of futuristic hydro jets, level up your rider and master dozens of spectacular stunts in the ultimate water racing adventure!
Oh, and of course you remember it was already available for Windows 8.1 (desktop PCs and tablets), right? Well check it: now you can get both for a single low purchase! Buy it here, buy it there -- it doesn't matter, you get both!
Get Riptide GP2 for Windows Phone today!
One of the most oft-repeated questions we get from fans is "When are your games coming to Windows Phone?" Well guess what Windows Phone lovers, your time has come!
Over the next 2 months we'll be releasing not just one, not two, but THREE of our most popular games on Windows Phone 8.1. Beach Buggy Racing, Riptide GP2, and Shine Runner will all come to the platform during the month of November.
But wait, there's more!
Beach Buggy Racing and Shine Runner will also join Riptide GP2 in the regular Windows 8.1 App Store. So whether you're playing on a Windows phone, tablet, or desktop PC, Vector Unit's got you covered.
The exact release schedule is as follows:
Oh and about that October thing...
We had previously reported that Riptide GP2 would be coming to Windows Phone the first week in October. However, working closely with Microsoft we decided it would be better to hold Riptide GP2 a little longer so we can bring it along with our two other games in November. Sorry for those of you who are disappointed at the delay, but we hope you agree it'll be worth the wait!
Hey there, Riptide GP2 fans! We thought you might enjoy this free downloadable Stunt Guide to help you pull off those amazing stunt sequences. And ... if you feel like sharing (or gloating) with some stunt videos of your own, we'd love to see them!
The Stunt Guide is letter-sized but you can adjust your printer settings if you prefer a smaller printout.
We just released our first update to the Steam version of Riptide GP2, which includes a handful of asked-for feature enhancements and a few minor fixes.
All users are strongly encouraged to update to this latest version, since you'll need it to enjoy online multiplayer games on Riptide GP2 going forward. But also becasue it's awesome.
The largest enhancement is an improved Online Multiplayer QuickMatch Mode:
- Allows you to see who else is in the Lobby with you.
- Allows you to join a Match that's in progress at the next Race start.
- Shows you the status of each racer while you're waiting.
- Allows up to 6 players to race simultaneously!
These improvements and others should make it a LOT easier to join multiplayer matches, and to get matches going with 4, 5, and 6 players.

- Added Multiplayer Waiting Room for Quick Match
- Fixed Cloud Sync issue for save data. You can now sync properly on multiple machines.

Our flagship racer Riptide GP™2 will be coming later this spring to Xbox One and Playstation 4.
Like the Steam version, this enhanced version of RGP2 features improved graphics, online multiplayer, split screen multiplayer, ghost racing (VR Challenge), and of course all the excitement you know and love in Riptide GP2. We'll also have full support for Xbox Live and PSN features like leaderboards and achievements/trophies.
Oh, and did we mention it runs at a silky smooth 60fps at 1080p on both consoles?
The Xbox One version was revealed at GDC this week. In particular, players and press reacted positively to one amazing feature -- split screen multiplayer with six -- count'em, six! -- simultaneous racers. Riptide GP2 is actually the first 3d racing game EVER to support 6 player split screen. You have to see it to believe it.
Dan Hsu from Gamesbeat tweeted this pic and comment regarding the 6-player mode:
