Ubisoft announced that season two of its sports racing game Riders Republic, Showdown, is now available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, and PC via the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store. The new season offers players a new multiplayer 6v6 mode, where two teams compete to collect as much lightning as possible while using new toys: gears that open up a new way to play. Players will be able to challenge themselves in new mass races and discover special outfits, session markers, and the all-new Manual mode, to ride a single wheel in style. They will also be able to name and participate in an in-game-specific friends list and create their own community with the new clan feature.
Additionally, the season will introduce a new season progression with seven weekly spotlights and exclusive rewards, as well as the ability to participate in live activities and events.
Year 1 Pass holders will have early access to two toys for this season, the Spider and the Juggernaut. Both toys will also be available as a pack in Showdown mode, along with the exclusive Sniper toy. Players can obtain the Year 1 Pass with the Gold or Ultimate Edition of Riders Republic, or as a stand-alone purchase. A Welcome Pack will also be sold separately and will include a new legendary outfit and 2300 Republic Coins.
