Mountain bike video game
It has a fairly spotted history, with some notable highs being Downhill Domination, Descenders, Shred 2, and some notable lows … almost everything. Skateboarding was Tony Hawk’s pro skater, snowboarding was SSX, BMX was Dave Mira Freestyle BMX, but mountain biking was left on the roadside, and large developers actually made MTB games. I never stepped into the plate.
Riders Republic (sic) is Ubisoft’s new video game that competes with action sports fans in a massive multiplayer experience. Players can choose to ride snowboards, skis, wingsuits, road bikes or, most interestingly, slopestyle or downhill mountain bikes.
From what we can collect, this is not a surreal simulation game, but a cartoonish and fun experience that can compete across disciplines. There is an element of realism because you can ride licensed bikes from brands such as Commencal, YT, Santa Cruz and Specialized, and you can ride real events and places such as Red Bull Rampage and Mammoth Mountain. In fact, you can ride in a total of seven US National Parks: Mammoth Mountain, Yosemite, Grand Teton, Sequoia Park, Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Canyon Land.

There is a solo play career mode that allows you to cross ranks and become a pro. There is also an online mode that includes the following contests:
-Competition: Competitive races and trick challenges that can be played in PvP
-Mass start: Over 50 player races where nothing is prohibited
-Multiplayer team mode: 6v6 team PvP battle
-Community Jam: Over 50 player events that pop up randomly on the map
-Online Cup: You can move up the leaderboard with the ranked multiplayer progress of the game
The game will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC and Stadia on February 25, 2021, but you can book now. More information, here..
