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.

Riders Republic’s Skate add-on is now available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, and PC, bringing a new sport to the Republic: Skateboarding.

Season 8: The Deck Festival launched today as well, with new events, gear, and cosmetics.

Plus, players can test out skateboarding for free at launch and from September 28 to October 2, when Riders Republic will be free to play on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC (via Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store).

The Skate add-on brings new gameplay and a variety of additional content to the Republic:

  • New area – The Deck, located in Bryce Canyon, is composed of six districts with a mix of indoor and outdoor skate parks, and even a giant ramp for thrill seekers.
  • New career – with four stunts, 15 events, and three new sponsors.
  • New gear –outfits suited to mainstream skateboarding culture, plus predefined skateboard decks, bolts, wheels, and marker elements.
  • New tricks – experience skateboarding as authentically as possible with 44 new tricks.

During the free weekend, players will have access to the base game, and can try out the new Skate sport through a demo and some live events. You’ll be able to keep your progression if you choose to purchase Riders Republic, which now offers new editions:

  • The Skate Edition will include the base game and Skate add-on.
  • The Skate Plus Pack will include the Skate add-on, Skate Cosmetics, the Hoverboard toy, and the Ridge Ultimate Pack.
  • The 360 Edition will include the base game and the Skate Plus Pack.
  • The Complete Edition will include the base game, the Skate Plus Pack, and the Year 1 Pass.

For a limited time starting September 28, you can get 75% off Riders Republic Standard Edition, and 20% off the new Complete Edition (prices and discount may vary depending on country at platform).

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.
