Riders Republic playable tomorrow on PC; pre-load now

Get in quick!

Riders Republic will be playable for free tomorrow, 12 October, on PC. Ubisoft today dropped the news alongside the confirmation that pre-loading is available right this second.

Pre-loading of this very limited trial kicked off at 6.00 pm AEDT today, ahead of the actual free-to-play period that runs between 6.00 pm AEDT on 12 October until 6.00 pm AEDT on 13 October.

Players will have access to all five career progressions in both PvE and PvP modes.

Four multiplayer modes — the game’s lot — will also be made available. They include:

  • Mass Race: The crazier the better in these epic, multisport races with more than 50 players*. New races appear randomly on the map every 30 minutes, so players will need to get ready to watch their blind spots, protect their position and remain agile with their skills as they fight their way to the finish line. PC Play Day will feature up to 3 different Mass Races.
  • Versus Mode: Players can join up with 5 friends in any career event and see who’s the very best.
  • Tricks Battle: Players will compete in 6v6 matchups and try to land as many tricks as possible on the various modules to capture them and earn points. The team with the highest score wins.
  • Free for All: In this mode, players can challenge up to 11 opponents and show them how it’s done through a select playlist of events.

It’s unclear if progression carries over into the full game proper when it releases.

Riders Republic heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5 and Stadia from 28 October 2021. We previewed it back in June at E3.
