SAN FRANCISCO, October 28, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Ubisoft announced that Riders Republic™ is now available on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, Stadia as well as on Windows PC through the Ubisoft Store and Epic Games Store. Players can also subscribe to Ubisoft+ on PC, Stadia and Amazon Luna.*
Developed by Ubisoft Annecy, 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 will roam freely with their friends in a huge and vibrant open world where they can 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 will allow 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 squad up with or against friends in insane multiplayer modes:
Mass Race: The crazier the better in these epic, multisport races with more than 50 players.** New races appear randomly on the map regularly, 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.
Versus: Players can join up with five friends in career events and see who’s the very best.
Tricks Battle: Players will compete in 6v6 arena 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: Players can challenge up to 11 opponents and show them how it’s done through a select playlist of events.
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 avatar. Whether a rider wants to master snowboarding or be the fastest thing on two wheels, everything is possible.
Year 1 of Riders Republic will feature one Grand Opening pre-season, three themed seasons as well as free content updates for all players including new multiplayer modes, live events, weekly challenges and more. Year 1 Pass owners will get early access to additional content, including exotic kits, cosmetic bundles and the BMX sport add-on.
To further enhance the multiplayer experience, Riders Republic supports cross-platform 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 will be able to upgrade their game to the next-gen version at no additional cost**** on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation®5. In addition, players who participated in the time-limited Trial Week will keep their progress at launch.
