Whether you're excited for action-packed hill-bombing, open-world exploration, or kicking around with your friends, this game will be a blast. Here are all the details you need to know about Riders Republic.
Riders Republic release time
Riders Republic releases tomorrow, October 28, 2022. Originally slated for a February release date that was pushed back to a September window, we can finally get our hands on Riders Republic. Hopefully all the delays were worth it. Players can expect to start playing at midnight local time. So whether you're staying awake or waking up early the next day, get ready to ride in Riders Republic!
Cavalry Republic Installation Size
According to the Xbox Store, Riders Republic will occupy approximately 23,87 GB of storage. With games typically weighing in at 30-50GB, I wouldn't be surprised if this game was a little bigger, so keep that in mind. If you need to free up space for Riders Republic, do so before you start downloading.
For all platforms, you can preload Riders Republic now. Once you start preloading the game, at midnight, you can play it. For players who have already downloaded the trial version of Riders Republic, they will likely need an additional download to access the full game.
How big is the Riders Republic map?
With the when, where and how aside, let's get into the why and what to expect from Riders Republic. The map of this game is approximately 250 square kilometers, which is roughly over 60 acres of pure country to tear apart. The game is set in the Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountains of America including Mammoth, Grand Tetons, Yosemite, and the Colorado River, to name a few. There are so many places to discover and you will have the equipment to do it, whether it is by bike, snowboard or wingsuit.
All Riders Republic Game Modes
In addition to traveling wherever you want and exploring the beautiful world of Riders Republic, there are of course many game modes to choose from. Mass races take place every thirty minutes at random locations on the map, encouraging racers to discover new locations and compete for dollars, the in-game currency. In these races, up to 50 players can race, whether they are currently online or ghost replacements filled by a player's race previously recorded. Trick Battles pit teams of six against each other. Each player tries to score as many points as possible by doing tricks and the team with the highest score wins.
Riders Republic will also feature a Career mode that will award players experience points. As your career level increases, more races will be unlocked for you and you will have access to new equipment and dollars.
Social and multiplayer hub
Riders Republic is perhaps the first of its kind to successfully encapsulate a massively multiplayer sports game. Naturally, a huge aspect of this game is social. Along with seeing other riders around the world, there will be a hub called Riders Ridge where players can hang out and access the store. Players can also roam the wilderness with up to five other friends in their social group. These groups can participate together in Versus modes and different multiplayer modes.
For players looking to rock the mountain solo, no worries. While Riders Republic is a multiplayer game and you will miss a huge aspect of the game if playing offline, players can play offline. There is a mode called Zen where you can ride wherever your heart desires to enjoy the bliss of solitude.
Does Riders Republic have crossplay?
Yes, there is crossplay. So it doesn't matter if your friends are playing on Xbox or PC and you're on PlayStation or Google Stadia, you can pair and find your friends anywhere. Additionally, cross-progression is available in this game, allowing your Riders Republic profile to be transferred across multiple platforms.
Personalization and Cosmetics
Loot is an important part of any extreme sports game. In Riders Republic, players will have two options for purchasing cosmetics: Bucks and Republic Coins. Unfortunately, there are microtransactions in the form of Republic Coins that will allow players to purchase unique skins. Fortunately, everything is still possible with Bucks, but you will have to earn them by organizing races and trick contests.
Players have many options when it comes to customization. For each challenge mode, players can customize a specific look for their character as well as specific gear. In addition, players will be able to customize their avatar to be the way they want it, as well as emoticons to celebrate their victories or say hello to their friends. Also, be sure to search for all 11 relics hidden around the world to really show them off to your friends.
Pass Année 1 Riders Republic
Like most live games these days, Riders Republic will have an annual pass. The first pass is aptly called the Year 1 Pass and will give players eight Exotic kits throughout the year. They will also receive the Rocket Bike and Rocket Skis on day one. The BMX Sport add-on expansion will also be included in the Year 1 Pass.
Good, you have it now. Now you know all the details that will help you conquer the ridge. Snag Riders Republic today and start shredding with your friends by tomorrow!
Republic of Riders is available on October 28, 2022 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna and PC.
