FOR PLAYSTATION, PC AND XBOX WITH SWITCH AND OTHER VERSIONS REXING AT A LATER DATE
Ubisoft has announced that Roller Champions will be skating on May 25th!
Revealed in 2019 and originally planned to release the year after, Roller Champions is a “Ubisoft Original” free-to-play PvP online competitive sports game produced by Ubisoft Montreal.
Roller Champions looks like the young whippersnapper offspring of the ancient but still fun Brutal Deluxe SpeedBall 2 and recent competitive darling Rocket League! But with less cars especially much less of the rocket-powered type cars!
From the trailers the premise looks simple enough with similar competitive offensive/defensive and counteroffensive / defensive play and tactics with the aim to score more goals than the opposing side while navigating obstacles and different themed arenas.
“In each match, you and two teammates will face off against another team of three in an elliptical arena,” Ubisoft says. “The goal is straightforward – reach five points before your opponents do – and the basics are easy to grasp”.
“Keep control of the ball by skating and passing, steal it from your opponents with a well-timed tackle, and make a full lap of the arena to open up the goal and take your shot”.
“Once you’ve got the fundamentals down, you can level up your game by practicing and socializing in the skatepark hub, and then using your skills in matches to execute team manoeuvres and do multiple laps to increase the points each goal is worth.”
Roller Champions will support the now standard cross-play and cross-progression at launch.
Roller Champions will also feature a free Roller Pass, which players can progress through to unlock cosmetic items for their skater, and a premium version offering access to exclusive gear that won’t be available in the item shop.
