It's been long-requested and a long time coming, but BMX is finally a part of Riders Republic's discipline manifest. Available now as part of Season Four's "Freestylin'" installment, a BMX-specific part of the game-world, Area 52, features street parks, transitions and a more tailored BMX experience, which you can jump into now as part of the game's Year Pass, or in standalone form later this month from September 21.
Make sure you watch the video above which features Sampa the Great who we Aussies can claim a bit because she lived here between 2014 and 2020.
Here's the official skinny:
This new season will provide players with the much-anticipated BMX Sport Add-on. BMX is all about freestyle and bikes are tricks machines giving riders a wide range of moves to express themselves. Players will embrace the creativity of underground street style in urban places and fly high over dirt trails. The BMX Sport add-on includes a dedicated career mode and events, alongside the brand-new BMX-dedicated zone, Area 52, nested in the heart of Canyonland. This formerly classified military zone, sprinkled with huge satellite dishes and abandoned warehouses, has been taken over by riders and will host new events riddled with alien-related secrets. The addition of BMX will also bring new gameplay features: Grind, for those who have a passion for rails, tricks and gap transfer and Half-Pipe, for the speed and amplitude lovers. This new sports add-on will let players experience 3 disciplines: Street, Park and Dirt.
This season will also kick-off the much-anticipated Vans partnership, along with the addition of new sponsors, such as Cult, Odyssey, We The People, Flybikes and SubRosa, just to list a few, offering a ton of new customization and gear combos.
The famous Vans Waffle Cup and RedBull Uncontained events will put players to the test and challenge their handlebars skills. Players can expect more surprise events along the trail, with five new funkies.
So what are you waiting for, put on your best Nicole Kidman voice and get BMXin', bandit.
