Issues Identified and Being Investigated by Ubisoft:

The following issues have been acknowledged and being investigated by the developers and the technical team at Ubisoft:

Unable to switch to Snow Sports

I just unlocked snow sports, and now the game is prompting me to switch from my bike to my new skis. I follow what it says, and when I get to the screen where you switch sports there are no skis there. I’m currently stuck on my bike at the top of mammoth mountain and the game won’t let me do anything else until I switch to snow sports, but there’s no skis to switch to! Could you please help me get my skis to switch to or something?

Game keeps crashing on Xbox Series X

Xbox Issues Statement - Riders Republic

Well I pulled the trigger and ended up purchasing the game even though I had all the crashes during the trial..

Ten minutes into the santa Cruz bike challenge and stutter, followed by freeze, hung for about 30 seconds and then quit to the dashboard……

So disappointed and don’t know Wether to laugh or cry at this stage.. a whole lot of money wasted and no resolution in sight..

Was really hoping it was an issue only with the trial but looks like there are major problems on xbox series x. I see there are already multiple forum posts and social media reports on the same issue.

This needs to be number one priority for the developers as the game is unplayable for a lot of people.

  1. I am well past the star level 30 yet I still don’t have access to my air sports equipment. Also the game glitches when I try to open the first rocketwing career event

  2. Stuck at mammoth mountain can’t move or progress and there isn’t even a way to reset your progress to start from the beginning. Completely unacceptable. $119 wasted, no help, still no update. Unplayable.

    • If you go to manage game you can delete all saved files from game from there, giving you the option to restart. I had the same bug. Restarting now.

      • The delete all files did not work for me, as saves are uploaded to UBISoft servers for CrossPlay. Have asked them to reset my account, which have seen might fix this issue.

    • i have the exact same problem. i re-installed the game twice, delete all files and progression. i tried everything and I still get stuck. even the ubisoft support couldn’t fix it. if someone knows a fix please tell me.

  3. I am also unable to play the first rocketsuit race event.
    Star level 282 and still don’t have the wingsuit sports.
    Very annoying.

  4. I’m 167 and air career is still locked for me too. If I don’t get a response from Ubisoft or see a fix by the end of the week I’m returning it to get my money back. Fun game but this bug is a ridiculous.

  5. Missing 1 bike race event … 1 bike trick event … 3 snow tricks events … definitely not there .. I’ve looked all over the map for them I’m level 40 bike race and max level 50 on the bike tricks and they still haven’t been unlocked .. must be a bug

  6. i feel like i am the only one u have a weird bug with this game , i play on xbox series X and yes i have the black cutscene and game stuck for the wingsuit but i just quitted the game and re launching it from scratch ( without quick resume ) was the fix for me , now about my issue, i’ve set in the option the difficulty to the max , and when i finish events that asks to finish in harder difficulty modes i never get the star . it never works despite i have finished the event and sometimes i got the 2 other stars from the objective but never the difficulty one.. am i the only one who have this issue ? thx a lot

  7. I bought the one year pass and it didn’t give me anything? also I cannot buy any micro transactions it just sends me to some random google page?

  8. It stopped giving me money for completing the new events in riders Republic, I don’t get the 1,000$ for completing new events or the $2,000 for the big events. is it bugged? I’ve done so many new races and it still hasn’t given me any money for completing them for the past few days

  9. Missing 1 bike trick event, 1 bike race event, and 3 snow trick events. Really annoying because I have ocd and need to 100% every game I play…

  10. Any idea. I bought rider republic on pc for my husband I doesn’t matter if he’s in the shop in the free roam or in challenges his screen randomly flashes black for a few second some times with in say a minute it can flash 4 or five times

    Any idea is anyone else having this issue

  11. I have bought the game was enjoying it a lot and then my pause menu changed I can no longer access and of my gear sponsors or even change from my bike at all . Not to mention my bike no longer has colour nor brand it’s just blank. I can not acces races or events at all even at the ridge I can no longer access shops sponsors or events I am not happy at all and don’t know what to do as I have re installed and deleted all saved files and they simply just return what a joke

  12. Downloaded the game, when you first start up it puts you into zen mode, when you bring up the map and go back out again it shows loading game map 50% and then puts you back into zen mode, doesnt allow to go into carrer mode ect. How long should you play for in zen mode until the game map fully loads from 50%???
