Ubisoft's Riders Republic is set to release in September 2021 in all its frenetic glory. Putting extreme sports games back on the map, it encompasses a range of sports and places them in a hectic multiplayer setting where you can compete either as a team or individually.
As a player, you will choose a career you want to pursue. You will then work your way through the career goals of your chosen sport to become the best of the best and crush all the rest! The sports listed on the Riders Republic website are:
- Freestyle bike
- Bike race
- freestyle skiing
- ski race
- rocket suit
Note: The bike aspect is mountain biking rather than BMX.
The goals for these sports can be tied to single races, or can expand up to 50+ free-for-all maniacs with a massive elimination element at the start of the race. Ubisoft said the 50+ players will be applicable for the next-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, while it will be reduced to 20+ players for the PS4 and Xbox One.

Alongside the six main career and sporting pathways, you'll undertake challenges that allow you to visit iconic and scenic real-life locations, including:
- mammoth mountain
- Grand Teton
- Sequoia Park
- Canyon de Bryce
Needless to say, there's going to be quite a long way to go and certainly a lot of challenges to overcome. Do you want to participate in the beta before its official release? Here's how to register.
