'Riders Republic' (ALL) Delayed Until Later This Year

by Rainier on Jan. 14, 2021 @ 3:35 p.m. PST

Riders Republic invites players to an exhilarating social playground, where they can experience the thrill of extreme sports in an open and densely populated world.

Riders Republic is a new IP and massive multiplayer outdoor sports playground.

Players will connect, compete and slay tricks through an exciting range of sports such as biking, skiing, snowboarding, wing suiting and rocket wing suiting. Whenever players explore or gather in the vibrant social hub, they will always find themselves surrounded by fellow riders.

From arid canyons to snowy mountains, Riders Republic allows players to ride through some of the most magnificent destinations on earth. The American National Parks, Bryce Canyon, Yosemite Valley, Sequoia Park, Zion, Canyonlands, Mammoth Mountain and Grand Teton have been faithfully recreated and imaginatively mashed together to create the liveliest sports park.

Players can squad up with or against friends in these insane multiplayer modes:

  • Competitive Races and Trick Challenges: Playable in PvP and solo, players will feel the rush during these races and challenges.
  • Mass Starts: Nothing is off-limits in these frantic races with more than 50 players. Players will need to watch their blind spots and protect their position as they collide, grind and fight their way to the finish line.
  • Multiplayer Arenas: Dominate maps in 6v6 PvP matchups.
  • Online Cups: Made for the very best riders to show off and show out, ultimately making it to the top of the leaderboard.

Originally scheduled for February 25, 2021, Ubisoft revealed that Riders Republic is getting delayed untril later this year.

"Hey Riders,

In September, we gave you a first look at our massive multiplayer playground in Riders Republic. We promised an action-packed outdoor sports park, filled with all-out mass races with more than 50 fellow riders on next-gen consoles, a variety of diverse activities and insane stunts. We can't wait to have you traverse our vibrant world and live out your own rider's fantasy.

Today, we want to let you know that we have made the decision to move our release to later this year. This additional time will allow our passionate team to deliver the best fun fueled experience to our players.

Thank you so much for your support and understanding.

Stay safe and get ready to join the madness of Riders Republic soon!

The Riders Republic Dev Team"

With career mode, riders can make a name for themselves in a variety of sports, rise to the top of the leaderboard and sign with legendary sponsors from a wide range of outdoor action sports.  Players can customize their rider through evolutive, progression-based gear and define every aspect of the avatar. Whether a rider wants to master snowboarding or be the fastest thing on two wheels, everything is possible.

Riders Republic will make the most of next-gen gameplay, running at 60 FPS and displaying more than 50 players simultaneously live onscreen on next-gen consoles. With the game’s very intuitive character and camera control combined with an innovative trick system, all players, casual and hardcore, will have the chance to experience untapped joy from the very beginning.

In addition, the Gold Edition and Ultimate Edition are available for pre-order.

  • Gold Edition includes the base game and the Year 1 Pass, including exotic kits that allow players to modify gameplay in the form of gear upgrades throughout the year, the BMX Sport add-on as well as exclusive content added after launch.
  • Ultimate Edition Ultimate Edition includes the Year 1 Pass and four exclusive cosmetic packs: Cosmic, Rainbow, Neon and Skull’n Style. Players will also enjoy 20 helicopter tickets to reach their favorite summits faster than ever.

Players who pre-order Riders Republic will receive the Bunny Pack, including a custom cute bunny outfit, an additional blue bunny head, and rainbow snowboard paint.

Players who purchase Riders Republic on Xbox One or PS4 can upgrade their game to the next-gen version at no additional cost.

Riders Republic will release worldwide for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Stadia and PC (exclusively on the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store) in 2021
