Riders Republic Release Date Revealed in New Trailer

Today during Ubisoft Forward 2021, Ubisoft released a new trailer and look at Riders Republic, its open-world extreme sports game that it first revealed back at last year's Ubisoft Forward. And in addition to providing a new look at the game, Ubisoft also provided a release date -- September 2, 2021 -- for the game that was originally scheduled to release earlier this year before it was delayed alongside most of Ubisoft's lineup.

Since the last we saw the game, it doesn't look very different. Meanwhile, if it looks a lot like an evolution of Steep, it's because it comes from the same developer, Ubisoft Annecy.

"Live out the rider’s fantasy as you roam free in a huge, vibrant open world, always buzzing with other players around you," reads an official pitch of the game. "Immerse yourself in iconic American national parks including Bryce Canyon, Yosemite Valley, Mammoth Mountain… all mashed up for you to shred! Squad up with your friends and compete in a wide range of multiplayer modes: feel the rush of downhill races, dominate maps in team vs team competitions, or give it your best shot in epic mass player-versus-player races with more than 50 other players.'

Riders Republic will be available via the PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Google Stadia when it releases worldwide later this year. Pre-orders are live on Amazon now.
