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.

Ubisoft announced that season two of Riders Republic, Showdown, will be available starting tomorrow on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia, as well as PC through the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store.

Get in on the action with Showdown: To celebrate this brand-new season, players will discover the new Showdown arena with its own multiplayer mode, an electrifying 6v6 where two teams compete to collect as much lightning as possible, while using new toys: gears that open up a new way to play.

Players will be able to challenge themselves in new mass races and discover special outfits, session markers and the all-new Manual mode, to ride a single wheel in style. They will also be able to name and participate in an in-game specific friends list and create their own community with the new clan feature.

This season also introduces a new season progression with seven weekly spotlights, where all players can unlock exclusive rewards and participate in live activities and events, such as the Rabbids Takeover event starting May 18.

Year 1 Pass holders will have early access to two toys for this season, the Spider and the Juggernaut. Both toys will also be available as a pack in Showdown mode, along with the exclusive Sniper toy. Players can obtain the Year 1 Pass with the Gold or Ultimate Edition of Riders Republic, or as a stand-alone purchase.

A Welcome Pack will also be sold separately and will include a new legendary outfit and 2300 Republic Coins.

Spider Toy will be available for Y1 pass owners on April 27 and will be able to be used outside of Showdown Arena. Juggernaut Toy will be available for Y1 pass owners later on the Season.  Available to Y1 pass owners on live date, separate purchase available after 7 days for non-pass holders

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.

Riders Republic is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
