In that in addition to that limited event, another limited event is happening this week, for a week. You'll get four hours of access to the game from October 21 until the 27th across all intended release platforms.
Here's the official rundown on what to expect in your four hours of access:
During the Riders Republic time-limited Trial Week, players can shred through four hours of the game before its official launch on October 28th. Progression during time-limited Trial Week will carry over to any edition of the game, so players can pick up right where they left off at launch.
Additionally, players will be invited to participate in the Mad Challenge: a multiplayer contest that offers players a chance to win rewards. To participate, players will first need to finish the onboarding and reach 20 stars to unlock the ShackDaddy’s ‘Exclusive Multiplayer Contest’ to access the mass race. Players who place in the top 10 in a mass race will be entered in a random draw, where one player will win a custom Canyon x Riders Republic bike and a Gold Edition of Riders Republic. Additional winners will also receive a Gold Edition of Riders Republic. To sign up for the Mad Challenge, please visit: https://ridersrepublic.com/madchallenge
The time-limited Trial Week will feature all five career progressions and multiplayer modes:
- Mass Race: The crazier the better in these epic, multisport & multiplayer races. During the time-limited Trial Week only, to guarantee that all participants of the Riders Republic - Mad Challenge have the same experience, Mass Racers will be capped up to 32 players for a better equity between new and current generations of consoles/PCs as crossplay will be enabled. New races appear randomly on the map every 30 minutes, 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. The time-limited Trial Week will feature up to three different Mass Races.
- Tricks Battle: Players will compete in 6v6 matchups in arenas 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: In this mode, players can challenge up to 11 opponents and show them how it’s done through a select playlist of exciting events.
- Versus Mode: Players can join up with five friends in career events and see who’s the very best.
We've played a chunk of this beast and there's a lot to unpack. It's also a very good try before you buy title, which means opportunities like this are really helpful.
