by Rainier on Oct. 8, 2021 @ 9:18 a.m. PDT

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 invites players to jump into a lively social playground where they can experience the thrill of outdoor sports in an open and densely populated world. Players roam, compete, and nail crazy moves through an exciting range of sports such as biking, skiing, snowboarding, wingsuiting and rocket wingsuiting. Whether players want to catch some major air with friends or ride solo to dominate the mountains and canyons, there are plenty of exhilarating moments and activities to be discovered.

Riders Republic allows players to ride through some of the most breathtaking landscapes the United States has to offer. Some of the most iconic American national parks such as Bryce Canyon, Yosemite Valley, Sequoia, Zion, Canyonlands, Mammoth Mountain and Grand Teton have been faithfully recreated and imaginatively mashed together to form the ultimate outdoor sports park.

Players can check out the world of Riders Republic on PC Play Day, available from October 12 at 12am PT to October 13 at 12am PT. During this time, players can freely access the game exclusively on Ubisoft Connect PC. Preload will be available on October 11 at 9am CEST.

The Riders Republic PC Play Day will give players access to all 5 career progressions, playable either in solo or PvP. Players will also be able to compete in all multiplayer modes:

  • Mass Race: The crazier the better in these epic, multisport races with more than 50 players (20 players on last-gen consoles). New races appear randomly on the map every 30 minutes, so players will need to get ready to watch their blind spots, protect their position and remain agile with their skills as they fight their way to the finish line. PC Play Day will feature up to 3 different Mass Races.
  • Versus Mode: Players can join up with 5 friends in any career event and see who’s the very best.
  • Tricks Battle: Players will compete in 6v6 matchups and try to land as many tricks as possible on the various modules to capture them and earn points. The team with the highest score wins.
  • Free for All: In this mode, players can challenge up to 11 opponents and show them how it’s done through a select playlist of events.

To allow players to jump right into Riders Republic’s iconic U.S. landmarks, the onboarding tutorial of the game will be disabled during PC Play Day only.

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

  • Mass Races: The crazier the better in these epic, multisport races with more than 50 players. New races appear randomly on the map, so players will need to get ready to watch their blind spots, protect their position and remain agile with their skills as they fight their way to the finish line.
  • Tricks Battle: Compete in 6v6 matchups and try to land as many tricks as possible on the various modules to earn points. The team with the highest score wins.
  • Free-for-All: Challenge new opponents in 12-player sessions and show them how it's done through a select playlist of exciting events.
  • Versus Mode: Join up with friends and see who's the best.
  • Multiplayer Competition: Made for the top riders to show off and show out, ultimately making it to the top divisions.

As part of their career, riders can make a name for themselves through five different career progressions. As players continue to prove themselves in the Republic, they will sign with legendary sponsors and receive invitations to the most renowned sports competitions, including Red Bull Rampage and the X Games. Players can customize their rider through evolutive progression-based gear and define every aspect of their character. 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, displaying more than 50 players on-screen simultaneously along with 4K ultra high definition resolution at 60 frames per second on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. To enhance the multiplayer experience, Riders Republic will support cross-play and cross-generation play, allowing players to connect with friends and other riders on all platforms. Players who purchase Riders Republic on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 can upgrade their game to the next-gen version at no additional cost, while keeping their progression across all platforms with Ubisoft Connect, the ideal destination to connect with friends or participate in in-game events and activities.
