Ubisoft brought a lot of big news in their E3 2019 press conference. One of their highlighted games was none other than the previously leaked, Roller Champions.
World Premiere of Roller Champions
Players can expect a roller derby inspired sports game when picking up Roller Champions for the first time.The game focuses on three vs three action as players race around an oval track in a game of intense keep-away. The longer a team possesses the ball, the more points they score when making a goal. Of course, this means the lap counter is reset once a team loses possession.
Roller Champions is built to be a game of skill. Players will ultimately need to master the techniques required to maneuver around the track. This is especially pertinent when making turns at accelerated speeds.
As of now, Roller Champion is free to play. Like other games in its genre, monetization will likely come in the form of cosmetics and unlocks that are not entirely advantageous. While the game is not fully launching until 2020, a demo is available throughout the week of E3, June 10th – 14th.
