Ubisoft made us wait for it, but Riders Republic looks like it will be worth it in the end. The spiritual successor to Steep (with a sprinkling of The Crew 2 in there) is effectively an extreme sports sandbox, where you can race wingsuits, descend hills on mountain bikes, or just explore and discover the beautiful open world around you.

It’s massively multiplayer, with emergent races, gameplay challenges, and even competitive modes, and it looks brilliant. Social hubs will give you a space to customise your character and equipment, as well as meet up with your friends and decide on what to do. The trailer gives you a really good overview – honestly, this looks like a winner.

It’s coming to PS5 and PS4 on 2nd September, and we can’t wait.
