Ubisoft Goes Big With Riders Republic
At the company’s digital event today, Ubisoft revealed a new game and IP called Riders Republic. Developed at Ubisoft Annecy, the new extreme sports game aims to offer a lighthearted but engaging take on a variety of sports, including biking, snowboarding, skiing, wing suiting, and rocket wing suiting.
The game includes a variety of environments to race and ride through, focusing on America’s National Parks, including Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Grand Teton, Mammoth Mountain, Sequoia Park, Yosemite Valley, and Zion.
The game is touting its focus on 50-player races, but the game is also playable solo and co-op, as well as in multiplayer arenas that focus on 6v6 maps.
Riders Republic is charting release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC on February 25, 2021. Players who purchase the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the next-gen version at no additional cost.
