With the release of Ubisoft’s Riders Republic just around the corner, we now have an idea of what the post-launch content will look like. And, it’s safe to say, anyone who was looking to Riders Republic for a long-term extreme sports fix has plenty to look forward to.
As has become commonplace for live service games, throughout year one, players can expect the usual mix of paid and free content distributed across four themed seasons. Read on below for a more detailed look at what you can expect, courtesy of an update released today by Ubisoft:
- It starts on day one with the Grand Opening Pre-Season. Players are invited to the Riders Republic launch celebration to play several multiplayer modes – Mass Race, Tricks Battle, Free for All, and Versus – and unlock exclusive rewards through weekly challenges. Year 1 Pass owners will be able to explore the map with 2 exotic kits: the Rocket Bike and the Rocket Skis. Those new toys will allow players to revisit the game at high speed and create their own journeys and stunts.
- In Season One, winter comes to the Republic. The Winter Bash will introduce a seasonal progression where players can unlock content and rewards by participating in time-limited multiplayer experiences, events, and special activities. Year 1 Pass owners will get access to additional exotic kits coming with exclusive skins and content, as well as an exclusive legendary cosmetic bundle to ride with style.
- For Season Two, it’s Showdown time with the addition of the epic Showdown Multiplayer Mode, an explosive 6v6 confrontation played in wild arenas. Players will jump into arenas with their team to collect and bank more gems than the opposite team. Year 1 Pass owners will get additional exotic kits along with exclusive skins and content.
- Season Three will bring the BMX Sport add-on to the Republic alongside BMX dedicated arenas as well as fresh playgrounds and events to discover. Exclusively for Year 1 Pass owners, the BMX Season will also bring the brand-new BMX career with new sponsors and events as well as a legendary cosmetic bundle.
On top of all that, should you choose to purchase the Year One Pass, expect to get day-one access to the Rocket Skis and Rocket Bike exotic kits. Beyond day-one benefits, the perks continue throughout the year, as pass owners will get 7-day early access to any additional exotic kits which are added to Riders Republic, as well as early access to the BMX sports add-on pack which Ubisoft has said we can expect.
Anyone who wants to future-proof their Riders Republic experience on day-one can do so by purchasing either the Gold or Ultimate editions of the game which both include the Year One Pass, as well as some additional cosmetics for anyone who opts for the Ultimate Edition.
