Roller Champions is a free PvP roller skating game from Ubisoft coming to PlayStation, Xbox and PC via the Ubisoft Store May 25The news comes with a new cinematic trailer showcasing some of the characters from the fast-paced sports action game.
For those who want to get their hands on the game but aren’t fans of those specific platforms, the game will also be released on Nintendo Switch, the Epic Games Store, Amazon Luna, and Stadia at a later date. The game will also feature cross-play and progression from launch, so you’ll be able to jump between platforms if you can’t just pick one.
The match is a three-on-three PvP championship, where two teams battle it out in the arena. It was a goal-focused title, with both teams scrambling for five points to secure the victory. You can grab the ball and pass it between your teams, or rip it out of the arms of the enemy team by shoveling them to the ground.
The trick with Roller Champions is that you can’t run up to the ball as soon as you have it. You need to run a lap around the arena before the opposing goal opens, which means once the game finally kicks in, you’ll be running around and chasing other players.
As you might expect, the game is a live service name. That means it’s launching a free Roller Pass, which contains a range of cosmetic items for your skaters, and a Premium Pass with extra gear that you won’t be able to get any other way. There’s also a Skate Park Center where you can hang out and show off your unique look to other like-minded players.
