Riders Republic in September

Ubisoft announces that Riders Republic is coming on September 2nd, offering a multiplayer outdoor sports playground for Windows and consoles. This was originally planned for release earlier this year before suffering a delay. There are plans for beta tests before the game's official launch, so register here if you are interested in being part of those. Here's a bit on the game:
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. Whether players want to catch some major air with friends or ride solo to dominate the mountains and canyons, there are plenty of exhilarating moments and activities to be discovered.

Riders Republic will allow players to ride through some of the most breathtaking landscapes the United States has to offer. Some of the most iconic American national parks such as Bryce Canyon, Yosemite Valley, Sequoia, Zion, Canyonlands, Mammoth Mountain and Grand Teton have been faithfully recreated and imaginatively mashed together to form the ultimate outdoor sports park.

Players can squad up with or against friends in insane multiplayer modes:

  • 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.

**Riders Republic will display more than 50 players on next-gen consoles and high-end PCs, and more than 20 players on last-gen consoles.
