Riders Republic Devs Pledge to Fix Achievement Issues, Matchmaking Times, Mass Races, More
Riders Republic launched last month, and by Ubisoft standards, the game was actually fairly stable and bug free. That said, there were still some problems and annoyances. Ubisoft hasn’t dropped their first big post-launch Riders Republic update yet, but they have released a list of some of the things they’re working on, including issues with achievements/trophies not showing up, duplicate items, matchmaking times, collision detection in mass races, progression bugs, and more. You can get the full rundown, below.
Unlocking duplicate gear
You may have wondered, “What’s the point?” when unlocking duplicate pieces of gear. Well, you’ll be happy to know that there is no point. With your help, we’ve identified this issue and are working on resolving this! Thank you for bringing this to our attention through your reports!
The Halloween Events left the ShackDaddy Bandit Challenges List before the time was up and we want to rectify that! Therefore, we’ve added them back for one more week!
Some of you were frustrated with sponsors asking you to complete impossible requirements as certain events were not available in the Free For All playlists when you received the request. These sponsors contracts have now been removed. Only sponsors with requirements that CAN be done will be visible.
Landmarks/Relics achievements/Trophy issues
We have received reports of missing achievements/trophies in situations where the landmarks were all obtained during the Trial Week or after finding relics, but the in-game counter did not update your progress. We’re actively working on a fix for these issues and will share more news as soon as we can.
Outfits in the shop showing items not in the pack
Currently, some outfits in the shop are not displaying the correct items in the pack, or not displaying all items in the pack. That’s a bug we’re looking into. Thank you for your feedback on these!
We’ve seen some of your comments regarding matchmaking times in Tricks Battle and Free For All playlists. We’ll keep listening to your feedback on this and will update you when we have news to share. As a temporary workaround, if you’re trying to matchmake via the rematch screen and it takes too much time, try canceling the request and starting from the gates on the Ridge.
Collisions in Mass Races
Some tweaks were made following the Beta Week but, for some, we haven’t quite nailed it yet regarding collisions in Mass Races. This won’t be something that will improve overnight but rest assured we’ll continue to try new things and better the overall experience as we continue to support the game post-launch. In the meantime, keep that feedback coming! The community’s feedback is an essential part of this process and the team appreciates it!
A few of you are experiencing issues regarding not unlocking certain careers or gear necessary to progress in the game. Thankfully, this is only affecting a minority of players. We’re well aware of this and are actively working on resolving this! Stay tuned for more info soon.
We’ve heard your feedback regarding the shop and the availability and diversity of customization items you can buy with Bucks.
- Firstly, now that the Halloween event is over, the Daily shop category will go back to refreshing daily. You should now see different items in the shop every day.
- About the unavailability of tops or bottoms outside of complete outfit packs: this is a design choice. The team wanted to design complete outfits to ensure a certain level of creative cohesion and group together pieces of clothing that matched. This is not intended to change for now, but we’ll certainly keep an eye on your thoughts.
- Finally, when thinking about how to customize your character, don’t forget about Sponsors Contracts and ShackDaddy Bandit Challenges! Those are in-game ways to get cool items (and they were designed as such). The shop is a very visible part of the game so sometimes it makes it seem like it’s the only way to get new items, but that was certainly not the intention. Yes, there are outfits you can buy with real money, but it was always a priority for our team to have a fair balance between free and paid content.
What about the preorder Bunny Outfit?
We’ll have more news to share soon about the return of your favorite bunny!
If you haven’t check out Riders Republic yet, its worth a look. I found it to be a gorgeous and exciting, if slightly simplistic, open-world racer in my full review…
Riders Republic’s posturing is more than a little phony and the game may be a bit mechanically simple for some, but its playground is an impressive one. With travel still difficult, Ubisoft’s sometimes-breathtaking recreation of America’s greatest national parks feels like something to be grateful for, and this game’s wide range of activities and challenges means almost everyone will be able to find some way to amuse themselves amongst its peaks and valleys. Riders Republic is a surprising breath of virtual fresh air.
Riders Republic is available now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Stadia, and Luna.
