Riders Republic mountain bike video game title shot Looking for a different kind of virtual riding this summer? You know, for when you’re done riding IRL but just want more? Ubisoft’s upcoming Riders Republic pits you against your friends, or other teams, in massive worlds of trails, ramps, jumps, and more.
The best part? The massively open gameplay features real-world courses like Red Bull Rampage and Mammoth Mountain! Ride (or board or fly) with up to 50 other gamers online at any time. Build your career over time and work your way up the leaderboard. And you can ride real bikes from brands like Santa Cruz, Specialized, Canyon, and Commencal!
Games include team points competitions for tricks, mass start races, and team races. And you can jetpack in wingsuits, or rip on skis or snowboard, too.
The game launches September 2, 2021, and should be available on PC, XBOX and Playstation. If you needed a reason to upgrade that console (and TV, and surround sound, and trainer setup ), this is it. Pre-order now, and sign up for Beta access at the link below.
