If you missed the closed beta for Riders Republic as well as the free PC Play Day (or you play your games on console), then you’ll be pleased to hear that you have one more chance to hit the slopes and take to the skies before the game launches. Ubisoft has just announced a Riders Republic trial week, which will let players on all platforms try the extreme sports sandbox for free one last time.
Ubisoft clearly believes the gameplay will sell the game because it has put Riders Republic in the hands of players a lot in the lead-up to launch. Having previewed the game during the closed beta, I can confidently tell you that this is one of the most enjoyable extreme sports titles I have played in years. It looks gorgeous, the gameplay is fun, and there’s a lot more to it than simply bombing down mountainsides.
If you’re a fan of mountain biking, snowboarding, skiing, or wingsuits, you need to make sure you try Riders Republic during the trial week. You can drop into the massive multiplayer extreme sports playground from October 21 to 27. Here’s the catch, though, you will only be able to enjoy four hours of gameplay. However, all the progress you make during the Riders Republic trial week will be kept when the game launches. So, you can pick up where you ended.
The Riders Republic trial week will give players access to all of the career progression and multiplayer modes.
Win a digital Canyon bike for Riders Republic
During the trial week, the ShackDaddy crew will also host a unique challenge. To take part, you will need to finish the onboarding tutorial and reach 20 stars. That shouldn’t take you long.
This ShackDaddy contest is titled the Mad Challenge and it’s a trial week exclusive mass race. If you manage to finish in the top 10 during this race, you will be entered into a random draw where you could win a custom Canyon x Riders Republic bike, as well as a Gold Edition copy of the game. And no, it’s not a real-world Canyon bike. That would have been incredible. Additional winners will also be drawn and rewarded with Gold Editions of Riders Republic. To sign up for the Mad Challenge, you need to visit this page on the Riders Republic website.
