Riders Republic Is Ubisoft’s New Mutliplayer Extreme Sports Playground
Riders Republic is the next game from the team behind Steep. This time, you'll have several new extreme sports to jump into with your friends.
Today’s UbiForward event featured several new announcements from mega-publisher Ubisoft. One of those new games is Riders Republic. The game is the latest from Ubisoft Annecy, who fans might remember were the lead team behind Steep. Riders Republic takes that Steep gameplay and blows it out in a major way. No longer are you confined to the wintery peaks. Now, you can do all kinds of extreme sports with your friends. Give the trailer a watch below.
Riders Republic is definitely for an eccentric style. Personally, I don’t love it, but that doesn’t really matter if the gameplay is good. As you can see in the trailer, the game lets you take part in downhill bicycle races, snowboarding trickfests, and even a bit of rocket wingsuiting. There’s even a shot that shows someone riding a bike across a wire spanning two mountains. It’s quite the collection of extreme sports.
The best part is that it’s all happening in a massively multiplayer world. In the footage, they didn’t say exactly how many players the game supports. However, there’s a segment at the end of the preview that shows a ton of players racing down a course on bikes. The footage looked like gameplay, so hopefully, they can populate the game with a massive crowd.
Riders Republic is set to launch in February 2021 on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. While you wait, be sure to check out the longer preview footage below. It goes much more in-depth on what to expect next year.
