Ubisoft has detailed the roadmap of the first year for their upcoming extreme sports game Riders Republic, which includes a number of new cosmetics, modes and an entirely new sport in the form of BMX biking. Year 1 will be divided into various seasons, including a Grand Opening that kicks off at the game’s launch.
Riders Republic will receive a number of updates post-launch as part of its extensive Year 1 roadmap, as detailed by Ubisoft. Some of the key events and new content to look forward to including the Showdown Multiplayer Mode, a 6v6 scramble that throws players into various arenas where they will compete against each other to rack up as many gems as possible. Also included is BMX Biking, which will be an expanded sport introduced in Season Three, adding more BMX-dedicated arenas and challenges into the game as well.
Riders Republic Full Year 1 Roadmap
- 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 journey 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.
