The Wild World of Riders Republic

In the summer of 2020, Ubisoft revealed Riders Republic, an open-world game in which extreme sports fans can explore natural areas and ride alongside their friends and other players. With its colorful art style and party-like vibe, the game preview trailer was an invitation for players to head off the beaten track and forge their own path, on a bike, skis, a snowboard, or in a wingsuit.

The Riders Republic Mindset

“It's true that, in Annecy, a large part of the population is passionate about outdoor activities,” Ruiz says.

Recreating the American Wilderness

“I spent a lot of time online looking at publications on the national parks,” mentions Fieux. This helped us to determine, in part, the places that would stand out the most, and that we definitely wanted to have in the game. I also spent loads of time on Google Earth to see where people took 360-degree photos.

From the Park to the Playground

“When the World team began working on the game, we started to see the cliffs, the rivers in the valleys, the representations of snow, forests, and trees appear,” says Neber.

Bringing It to Life

“The canyons at night are nothing like the canyons when the sun hits at noon,” explains Fieux. The evening crickets are different from the insects in the morning or the coyotes in the afternoon. We have put in place a whole package of visual and sound elements to allow players to experience what it means to be in these places at different moments. We even have a great photo mode letting them choose if they want to have a little rain or even fog.
