Riptide GP 2 Launching on Android on July 23rd (Video)
Riptide was one of the major benchmark games on Android and actually one of the first to really test the Tegra platform. Now, we’re getting Riptide GP 2 next week, that will probably serve as an excellent benchmark for Tegra 4 or even Snapdragon 800.
The game comes to Android on July 23rd from Vector Unit and we’re expecting kickass lighting and water splashing effects. The gameplay stays the same: hardcore racing with waterjets and a feeling you’re playing a less futuristic Repulze or Wipeout. Riptide GP 2 will not be exclusive to Tegra devices, although the Tegra units will get it first and benefit from extra visuals.
As far as specs go, you will need a minimum of Android 2.3, a 1 GHz single core CPU and 512 MB of RAM, so the game can actually run on a ton of devices. Advanced graphics settings will make the difference on higher end slates. The price tag will be $2.99 and the game will even have true multiplayer.
