Riders Republic Experiencing Server and Service Issues During Free Play Weekend

Riders Republic has had a bummer weekend after the servers began to crash intermittently during their free play weekend. What started as a simple disconnection issue has now become a full-blown service-related problem that prohibits players from creating photos of player creations, and has disabled opponents during solo event runs.

Now is arguably the best time to hop into Riders Republic while the winter Olympics are front and center internationally. Unfortunately for players looking to give the game a shot during their free play weekend, you won’t be getting the full Riders Republic experience. Ubisoft has informed their players that, what started as a simple server issue, has transformed into a service problem that now affects all User Generated Content (UGC) in the game.

That means that players won’t be able to take and post photos, or see computer controlled “player-opponents” during solo play. The opponents are computer players that emulate other real players that took part in a particular event. This way, it makes the game feel alive with other players even if you are running solo events. It can also help players that want to use their opponents as guides to take them through the more difficult races.

Currently, there is no estimated time to a fix, and hopefully the free play weekend will be extended so that the influx of new players will get to try the game again, as it was meant to be played. If you’ve been on the fence when it comes to playing Riders Republic you should check out our full in-depth review. Riders Republic released back in October, and is currently available on PC as well as Xbox, and PlayStation consoles. You can also experience Riders Republic which is included as part of Ubisoft+ a subscription service that grants access to many of Ubisofts most popular titles.
