RIDERS REPUBLIC SEASON 5: WINTER WONDERLAND IS STARTING NOW!
Today, Ubisoft announced that the Season 5 of Riders Republic is launching on PlayStation®5*, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One (includes enhanced features on Xbox One X), PlayStation®4 (includes enhanced features on PlayStation®4 Pro), on Windows PC via the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store, Luna, Ubisoft Connect and Ubisoft+.
Winter Wonderland will take players back to the slopes and the highest mountains of the Republic. The dev team at Annecy will be celebrating the holiday season and the New Year with the community. Players can expect a special X Games themed week later in the season, tied to the real competition. Ubisoft’s well-known character, Ezio, will also make an appearance, with a special activity and cosplay outfits in the in-game store.
- Celebrate the 15th Anniversary (Dec 15-21 and Jan 4-11)
The Republic will celebrate the 15th anniversary of one of Ubisoft’s most famous gaming brands! On this occasion, Riders will get immersed in some special celebration, including time limited collectible activities, Ezio and Eivor cosplay outfits, a dedicated tribute emote, a radio station available for the whole season and playing the game’s iconic audio tracks, and more. During the first of these 2 weeks, a photo competition will also take place and a special photo overlay will be available. Players will need to share their best interpretation of the brotherhood inside the Republic.
- Holiday Season Celebration (Dec 21-28)
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Let’s celebrate the holiday season! Riders will have a set of free weekly challenges to earn themed rewards and get the perfect look ready for the party. This week also includes a new special mass race, as well as themed outfits in the shop. The Holiday season radio will be back and available for 2 weeks.
- New Year’s Eve (Dec 31 – Jan 4)
Bye 2022… Here comes 2023! Riders will get a proper celebration as they will enjoy a firework show in the hub. New challenges will be set up to get the first ever epic Burger Box, with chances to win legendary items from past season, and a pair of cool 2023 celebration googles if they connect and get in the Riders Ridge during this community event. Riders can also enjoy a special new year’s Mass Race and a themed overlay in photo-mode. A line-up of new shiny outfits with animated patterns and FX will be available in the in-game shop.
- X Games Winter edition (Jan 25 – Feb 1)
To immerse players in the world’s most famous freestyle competition, two X GAMES events will be available to all players for the week, even if they don’t own them yet. Special weekly challenges will be set on these 2 events to win exclusive X GAMES rewards. Riders will also get a blast trying snow themed special Mass Races and the Ridge will be updated with X Games elements.
- Ghost Warriors (Feb 15-22)
During this week, players’ skills will be challenged as the Warriors Mass Race is coming back. New modifiers will be set for even more tension. Riders will need to be ready for the Ghost Warriors Mass Races featuring no collision, nighttime atmosphere, and exclusive associated rewards.
This brand-new Season will allow Riders to be stylish yet technical, as The North Face enters in the Republic as the season sponsor! This collaboration, highly expected by Riders, will come with new outfits to find in the in-game store for the whole season. The iconic The North Face Himalayan Suit can be unlocked at the end of the season progression, and The North Face Base Camp Duffle bag will come as a reward for one of the weeks to come.
Moreover, Riders will get their hands on more “couture” items this season, as Prada joins the party once more! For this new collaboration, Prada designed an exclusive BMX for the game and a special associated outfit. But there is more! Prada has also released a real snowboard inspired from the previous collaboration’s flame outfit design, and Riders will be able to unlock it in the season progression.
