Ubisoft Has Revealed The Roadmap for Riders Republic

Riders Republic

Riders Republic isn’t even out and Ubisoft already has its road map at the ready.

We’d be tempted to take that as a warning sign, that the game we’re going to get this October 28th is going to be a rather anaemic offering. But we’ve already had our hands on this mostly multiplayer extreme sports game and came away rather impressed, so that’s almost certainly not the case. Instead, it seems as if Ubisoft is hoping the promise of future content will get people to snap up the game’s premium Year 1 pass.

That’s not to say those who don’t open their wallets even further will be left out in the cold. All players will get access to additional features, which are set to arrive over the next year. These features include Seasonal Progression, a 6vs6 Showdown mode and BMX dedicated arenas.

However, purchasing the pass will give you an “exotic” kit (which seems to mostly cosmetic) and, when the BMX arenas arrive, a new BMX career. In essence, Ubisoft has big plans for Riders Republic but purchasing the pass will give you extra bonuses on top. Thankfully, none of these bonuses seem to be pay-to-win, though there’s no guarantee that will remain the case.

The Year 1 Pass comes with the Gold Edition and Ultimate Edition of Riders Republic, but you’ll also be able to purchase it when the game launches. You can find full details of the pass, and how to get it, on Ubisoft’s website.

Riders Republic will sport a single-player mode of sorts, but it’s geared towards online play, and has been billed as a “massively multiplayer sports game”. It’s set to arrive this 28th October, on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Google Stadia.
