Republic of Horsemen is a game that requires you to be constantly connected to Ubisoft's servers, which makes it frustrating if you get hit with this "Server Status: Offline" message. "Are Republic of Horsemen servers down?" and "Is it on my side?" are the first questions that undoubtedly come to mind. Don't worry, in this guide we'll detail exactly what to do if you can't access Republic of the Horsemen's servers. Sometimes all it takes is a simple reboot.
Are the Riders Republic servers down? How to check server status
The first thing to do if you receive the 'Servus Status: Offline' message is to check the Ubisoft page for Republic of Cavaliers Support. Here you can see the latest updates on server status and known issues with Ubisoft games. We also recommend following @RidersRepublic and @UbisoftSupport on Twitter for server outages as they occur.
If Republic of the Horsemen's servers aren't having any issues and you're playing the game on Xbox or PlayStation, check the Xbox Live or PlayStation Network online status. For Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S, visit the Xbox status page and for PlayStation, check the PlayStation Network service page. Xbox also has an official Twitter support account, @Support Xbox, which regularly notifies users of outages of individual game services and Xbox Live itself.
It may also be worth checking social media, like Twitter or Reddit, to see if other players are reporting having the same issues before the server status is officially announced.
If Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, or Riders Republic are down, the only thing you can do is patiently wait for them to return. Luckily, you can still enjoy Riders Republic's Zen mode offline, which lets you explore the entire map at your leisure, without interruptions. Why not practice your tricks with our Bike Tricks and Ski & Snowboard Tricks guides while you wait?
