Ubisoft Forward played host to a wide range of announcements, including a deep dive into Riders Republic, the new massive multiplayer outdoor sports playground that will launch September 2, 2021.
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.
Riders Republic offers a lot of multiplayer modes, including:
- 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.
Pre-orders for the Gold and Ultimate Editions are also ongoing, which include the following:
- Gold Edition includes the base game and the Year 1 Pass including eight exotic kits that allow players to modify gameplay in the form of gear upgrades throughout the year, the BMX Sport add-on plus exclusive content added after launch. Rocket Bike and Rocket Ski exotic kits will be available at launch.
- Ultimate Edition includes the base game and the Year 1 Pass as well as four exclusive cosmetic packs: Cosmic, Rainbow, Neon and Skull’n Style. Players will also enjoy 20 helicopter tickets to reach their favorite in-game summits faster than ever.
Riders Republic will be available on September 2 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
