Ubisoft has made Riders Republic available as a free download for a limited time.

The Riders Republic free-to-play period runs from now until 8am BST on the morning of October 13.

If you want to trial the game for free, then you can download Riders Republic from the Ubisoft Connect Store.

And don’t worry about having to play through a boring tutorial, because the training section is disabled for the duration of the trial.

This means you can jump straight into the open-world action, taking part in sports like snowboarding, biking and skiing.

Ubisoft explains more: “Many of you participated in the Riders Republic Beta back in August and had lots of fun in our Massive Multiplayer Playground, while also watching your favourite streamers and sharing feedback.

“We have a number of surprises coming as we ramp up to the launch of the game on October 28, 2021.

“The onboarding/ tutorial will be disabled for PC Play Day only, so that you can jump directly into the game and start discovering our world!

“Experience all the different sport careers the game has to offer, including bikes, snow sports and air sports. Whether you love to race or prefer to grind and do sick tricks, : the PC Play Day has it all!”

According to Ubisoft, fans can even try out some of the new Shackdaddy Bandit Challenges.

Completing challenges is how players unlock stars, which can be used to purchase customisation items.

If you enjoy the free trial and want to play in full, Riders Republic will be available from October 28.

Fans can pre-order a Standard Edition and Ultimate Edition, the latter of which contains the Year 1 Season Pass.

That’s on top of the Cosmic, Rainbow, Neon, and Skull’n Style Packs, as well as a custom Bunny outfit and snowboard graphic.

If you haven’t seen much of Riders Republic, the upcoming Ubisoft game is kind of like an expanded version of Steep.

Instead of just winter sports, gliding and wingsuits, the game features downhill BMX biking.

“Grab your bike, skis, snowboard, or wingsuit and explore an open world sports paradise where the rules are yours to make – or break.

You can play against 19 other players in a massively-multiplayer world that includes locations such as Yosemite, Zion, and Bryce Canyon.
