The Riders Republic beta is scheduled to start on August 23 and end on August 25. This gives players only a few days to jump in and get a taste of the extreme sports on offer. Unfortunately, this is during the week, instead of over a weekend, so you may need to plan out your playtime a bit more carefully.

Riders Republic beta careers & modes

Riders Republic beta careers & modes

There will be three careers featured in the Riders Republic beta. These careers will focus on Bike Races, Snow Tricks, and Air Sports (rocketwing and wingsuit). Beyond these main careers, the beta will also include a few multiplayer modes, which the official press release explains:

  • Mass Races: The crazier the better in these epic, multisport races with more than 50 players*. New races appear randomly on the map every hour, so players will need to get ready to watch their blind spots, protect their position and remain agile with their skills as they fight their way to the finish line.
  • Tricks Battle: Compete in 6v6 matchups and try to land as many tricks as possible on the various modules to capture them and earn points. The team with the highest score wins.
  • Free for All: Challenge new opponents and show them how it’s done through a select playlist of events.
  • Versus Mode: Players can join up with friends in their career progression and see who’s the very best.

After you’ve signed up for the Riders Republic beta, all you need to do is wait until the preload unlocks, and then get it downloaded. Just make sure you’ve got room for the install size. You can head over to the official site for Riders Republic to read more about the careers and game modes that will be included in the beta. Be sure to keep it locked to Shacknews as we bring you the latest on Riders Republic.
