That time is the same across all platforms, so you can play at midnight whether that's on PS5, Xbox, or PC.

If you pre order the Ultimate Edition, though, you also get various other pre order cosmetics, as well as the Year 1 pass that the Gold Edition grants.

You'll get the Neon Pack, the Cosmic Pack, the Rainbow Pack, and the Skull 'N Style Pack, as well as 20 Helicopter Tickets.

Is Riders Republic on Game Pass?

Online focused games are usually better when larger player bases have access to the it from release date. Therefore, you may be wondering if Riders Republic is launching on Xbox Game Pass.

Unfortunately, Ubisoft's game isn't launching on Xbox's subscription service, and there's been no hint towards it ever doing so.

Previous Ubisoft games, including the similar Steep, did come to Game Pass, but only after a few years. Therefore, there's always chance that Riders Republic does too. Just keep your fingers crossed for now.
