Driver: Speedboat Paradise swaps asphalt for water

Ubisoft is reviving the Driver franchise, but it’s not exactly what you might be expecting. Previous titles in the series have been primarily console based games about driving cars. This one, though, is a mobile speedboat racer.

You play as a young speedboat racer who ends up persuaded by the series’ long-running central character, John Tanner, to help take down the mob. Through speedboat racing. It’s a weird direction for the license, and seems like something that was maybe applied after the game was in development to put a marketable name on it. With that said, I loved Hydro Thunder back in the day, and Driver: Speedboat Paradise absolutely brings memories of that game to mind.

Driver: Speedboat Paradise is a free to play game that Ubisoft expects to release in western territories in April 2015.
