Riders Republic, a new extreme sports game, was revealed during the latest Ubisoft Forward event, alongside a release date, trailer, and deeper peek at gameplay. You can also preorder Riders Republic now, so you have your copy reserved for launch. There are a number of different editions and platforms it’s available for, each offering different tiers of content–and if you preorder, you’ll get a special content pack full of bunny-themed cosmetics.
The release date for Riders Republic is set for February 25. Even though that’s after the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, Ubisoft is offering free upgrades from the PS4 and Xbox One versions to their respective next-gen versions. This means if you decide to hold off on buying the new consoles this year, you can pick one up sometime down the line and still play the improved version of Riders Republic for free.
Riders Republic’s downhill playground features an open world made of seven different regions, all of which which take inspiration from US national parks. You’ll be able to use a variety of bikes, skis, snowboards, and wingsuits to race, trick, and explore this world. It boasts 50-person multiplayer as well, so you’ll be able to bomb down hills with a lot of your friends.
All Riders Republic preorders come with the Bunny Pack, which features a number of cosmetic items. If you preorder, you can pretty up your snowboard with the Rainbow Snowboard paint, throw on the Cute Bunny outfit, and wear the Blue Bunny head.
The Riders Republic standard edition comes with the Bunny Pack (if you preorder) and the base game, allowing you to purchase any DLC at a later date. You can also preorder digitally on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The Riders Republic Gold edition comes with the base game and Year One pass, which will feature additional post-game content released over the course of a year. Unfortunately, we don’t know what that content will be as of yet. Preordering the Gold edition also snags you the Bunny Pack. You can also preorder digitally on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The Riders Republic Ultimate edition is only available digitally. It comes with the base game, Year One pass, and the Ultimate Pack as well as the preorder-exclusive Bunny Pack. The Ultimate Pack includes the Cosmic Pack, the Rainbow Pack, the Neon Pack, and the Skull’n Style Pack. It’s unclear what exactly you’ll be getting with each pack, but from the promotional image, it looks like players can expect outfits and cosmetics resembling an astronaut and unicorn as well as some skull- and neon-themed gear. In addition to all that, you’ll also get 20 Helicopter Tickets–unfortunately, it’s still unclear what exactly these do.
