During its busy E3 presser, Ubisoft took some time to reveal a free-to-play sports game that it has been developing for PC. They call it Roller Champions, and it’s a roller derby style action sports game where players can skate, pass, dodge and score their way to victory.
Fast and Fun
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with Ubisoft Winnipeg and Ubisoft Pune, Roller Champions is a new sports sensation delivering exhilarating and fast-paced team PvP gameplay – on wheels. Two teams of three players are pitted against each other in arenas around the world, and players are cheered on by crowds of roaring fans as they acquire the ball, pass it to teammates and dodge and tackle opponents to score a goal in the illuminated hoop that appears above the rink.
Fierce and Friendly
Competition is everywhere, so teamwork is crucial on the road to becoming Roller Champions! Roller Champions combines fun and collaborative team play with fierce and friendly competitive action. Three players team up and use speed, wit, tackles and dodges to lap around the arena to be the first team to reach five points. Ride up and down the walls of the elliptical arena to gain speed, pivot, pass or race toward the goal to take a shot.
Roll up to Glory
As players progress, they will gain more and more fans – eventually filling up an entire arena! Once one arena is filled to the max, players will move to a bigger arena to fit their growing fan base. They will unlock customization items like new gear, fan celebrations, fan outfits and animations and more. Roller Champions leaderboards keep track of those making Roller Champions history.
Roller Champions will be released in 2020, but is available in demo form at this very moment, via Uplay. Those with interest will have four days to download and play said demo before it’s gone.
