Whereas Republic of Horsemen has always focused on bike tricks, the game’s fourth season will refine that in a whole new way. When Season 4 launches, players will no longer be confined to cheating in sparse obstacle courses. Before the launch, I got to check out what the season has in store, from new bikes to an awesome new location and new events. To put it simply, this is BMX, which comes with all the attributes you imagine. As with other sports, you will be able to freely switch to BMX via the steering wheel whenever you want.

The biggest difference you will notice is that BMX bikes now allow you to grind. Before, the tires never stuck to the rails or the like. But now you can perform many consecutive transfers like a pro. The new bikes come in two varieties in Season 4 – park BMX and dirt BMX. Each even has its own specific tricks, which you perform the same way as before. However, the addition of bike parks gives Republic of Horsemen a little something it just didn’t have before, which strongly reminds me of some classic BMX games that featured a similar level design.

New Events are where the majority of content awaits. There are 15 new events spread across three areas. The one with the fewest events is Yosemite Valley, which puts you mostly in summer camp, with ramps, half-pipes, and plenty of rooftops to trick out. There’s even a parking lot with a school bus to jump on, if you feel like it. The area around the camp is lush, green and covered in dirt roads, making it perfect for newer BMX mountain bikes. Even though there are only a few events in this area, it is still very memorable.

New trials

Then there’s Mammoth City, which you might remember from your past adventures in Republic of Horsemen. Season 4 sees the return of the Zone with plenty of grind opportunities. This area is in stark contrast to the others, as it’s snow covered, which doesn’t slow your bikes down at all. The area has been very well suited for bike grinding, and achieving lap after lap on a bike in the snow provides a bit of a different look for the game. While you could technically mess around in this area before, grinding really makes a huge difference.

But the biggest attraction is the new Area 52 environment. As you’d expect, it has an alien theme. It’s basically a giant bike park filled with towering half-pipes and over-the-top geometry. Featured event objectives require you to smash the tail of an old plane. In Area 52, there are usually five alien-headed balloons to find to reward you with more stars, as well as to spell out certain four-letter words (usually “bike”. Stick your head out of the gutter). Most Season 4 events also require you to grab a camera, which shows a cool shot of you grinding something.Riders Republic 3 Season 4 Preview

Naturally, the events of season four focus on trickery, so you’ll be stringing together ridiculous grinds, as well as flips and rodeos. The tricks on the BMX bikes are also significantly faster and flashier than the tricks in the base game. This goes especially well with some of the new events, like a competition sponsored by VAN’S where you have to rack up huge scores. The latest event also nods to the Trials games, which was a pleasant surprise.

Or will we not?
