Ubisoft recognizes Riders Republic crashing issue on Xbox Series X

If you’re into sports video games, chances are you’ve heard of Riders Republic. Developed by the same studio that brought us Steep (Ubisoft Annecy), the game launched on October 28 and is published by Ubisoft.

The game allows players to choose from five activities: snowboarding, wingsuiting, skiing, mountain biking and even rocket costume. According to Ubisoft, Riders Republic is a massively multiplayer sports game.

It’s an open world that features multiple US national parks and combines them into one map. In case you aren’t interested in the multiplayer aspect of the game, Riders Republic also offers a career mode that lets you enjoy the game solo.

Multiplayer mode allows over 50 players to play against each other. However, the console version of the game only allows up to 20 players.

However, shortly after its release, players at Riders Republic say the game is to crash on the Xbox Series X. While most reports suggest crashes occur during mass races, others say the game crashes randomly.

I’m not going to lie this game is not optimized so many issues that some races just cause your xbox to lock up to the point that it turns off i dont know how it got past the question and answer yes , the preloader includes the day 1 patch. I am aware that mass races are crashes, but I only do regular races. It’s to emphasize that you can’t even progress

Cannot play Mass Races without it crashing between rounds, various events crash and it’s the same you can replicate and between most multiplayer rounds it crashes, it’s fucked up. Playing on Series X and it’s not just a dashboard crash, it completely turns off my Xbox after a crash.

Gamers have stated that they have not encountered such issues while playing the trial version of the game. Fortunately, Ubisoft appears to be aware of the Riders Republic crash on Xbox Series X and has stated that it was currently under investigation.

We know that Xbox players are reporting game crashes. We are actively investigating this. Mass Races temporarily increased to 32 players to help resolve this issue. Are you seeing an improvement?

It turns out that this isn’t the only bug currently affecting players. Some are saying that the Riders Republic Bunny Pre-Order Outfit is missing. It looks like players were able to outfit the outfit some time ago, but it looks like Ubisoft has disabled it now.

The pre-order bunny outfit and heads are now missing. Is anyone else having this problem? They were in my inventory this morning but are now gone?

@RidersRepublic my bunny pre-order outfit is gone and my blue bunny head is gone. I had them and wore them and when I logged in yesterday in rest mode they were all gone. I don’t know what else might be missing.

Many were confused as to what had happened to their bunny costume. Luckily Ubisoft clarified this and said they weren’t missing the Bunny Costime and turned it off to investigate an issue.

Hi, the bunny outfit has been temporarily disabled so the team can further investigate an issue affecting Riders Republic.
