Riders Republic is a massively multiplayer game that Ubisoft is looking to propel into the sports genre. Fans can take out a wide variety of vehicles and sports attire to explore some truly impressive maps. Maps rendered in the game include Sequoia Park, Mammoth Mountain, Yosemite Valley, and other national parks. Sports fanatics can use mountain bikes, snowboards, skis, and more to get around. Gamers get to use wingsuits of various kinds too.
Along with the beautiful scenery, players get various unique game modes. There will be Tricks Battle Arena matches where players try to go around the maps doing death-defying stunts to see who scores the highest. The real draw, though, is the 6v6 multiplayer in massive 50 player matches. You can zip and weave your way through a mass of other players in a chaotic race to the bottom.
Along with all of that comes a standalone career mode where your sports legend can be told at iconic events like X Games. Truly, this is the dream game for adrenaline junkies.
The game is due to release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Luna, Stadia, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on September 2, 2021. Before that happens, the developer wants to load test the server infrastructure. Ubisoft has opened up registration for that closed beta they plan to do, here’s what to do if you want to join.
The Riders Republic closed beta begins soon, and will test various game modes planned for inclusion. You can sign up now by heading to the Riders Republic registration website. You will need to link your Ubisoft account or make one if you don’t have one already. Once that’s done, just login and pick the platform you wish to play on. When the test goes live you will get an email with more details.
