Riders Republic, the online racing/extreme sports mash-up game from Ubisoft, is going free to play this weekend. Riders Republic was released last October. The game is a unique online racing game with groups of up to 64 players, all based around various extreme sports. Riders Republic is based around four main sports. Mountain biking, snowboarding, skiing, and wingsuit flying.
For those who want to check out Riders Republic during the free weekend, the whole game will be available. That’s great news for players who want to experience all of the different aspects that the game has to offer. Gamers on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will be able to participate in the free weekend. The free weekend will not be available to those playing on PC or Stadia. PlayStation players will have the opportunity to pre-load the game from today, February 8, at 5 pm CET/11 am EST/8 am PST. Unfortunately, pre-loading is not available for Xbox gamers.
The free weekend will take place from Thursday, February 10 until Monday, February 14. On February 10, the free weekend will begin at 8 pm CET/2 pm EST/11 am PST. The free weekend will end at the same time on February 14.
