The Premium tier of PlayStation Plus will give its subscribers the chance to experience an immersive and modernized version of Ridge Racer 2 soon.
When will Ridge Racer 2 become available to PS4 & PS5?
Available from the 20th December 2022, users with a PlayStation 4 or 5 can look forward to downloading this classic game for their newer consoles.
Once again Soni stands by its legacy, making console owners have access to some of their all time favorite retro titles.
You can now bring back nostalgic experiences or rediscover classics you may have missed!
With the addition of Ridge Racer 2, those with a Premium level subscription have even more incentive to stay active in the ever growing gaming community.
Developed by the renowned Namco Bandai Games, this sideways racing game had exclusive rights to PSP upon its launch in 2006.
Its extraordinary framerates and visuals along with an uplifting soundtrack made it a marvel for portable gaming devices at that time.
However, it lacked the distinction to stand out from 2004’s Ridge Racer for this same device- graphics and gameplay mechanics were almost indistinguishable.
In hindsight, we feel the additional tracks included in the sequel still make it a preferable choice – if given two options, we would choose the second.
How will the game be modernized?
Ridge Racer 2 will be enhanced for PS4 and PS5, in terms of graphics fidelity, frame rates and gameplay.
The design team at Soni is making sure all aspects of the original classic are maintained but with a smooth upgrade to meet today’s standards.
So there you have it, everything you needed to know about PSP’s Ridge Racer 2 coming to PS4 and PS5 via PlayStation Plus.
It’s a great addition for those with a Premium level subscription, especially as it allows them to rediscover classic games from the past.
We can’t wait to see what other games are added on PS5 in the future!
