Since Roll7’s acquisition by Private Division, the company has released Olli Olli World and is hard at work on Rollerdrome. In a recent development video on Private Division’s YouTube channel, Roll7 described the game’s level design and how players will traverse the game.
Making a level where you don’t have any dead ends, and you don’t have to cut corners you can get stuck in. You can always go up something or jump up or carve around something this is going to bring into combat again. – John Ribbins, Creative Director at Roll7

Rollerdrome Key Features
- Skate or die: In Rollerdrome, slowing down or stopping is a sure-fire way to get yourself killed. Chase the adrenaline and keep up the pace at all times; you need to be constantly moving and carving paths through the arena. Focus on dodging enemy attacks and pulling off tricks – both will restock your ammo. You can fire at enemies to reduce their health and stagger them as you go.
- Moves like stagger: Staggering enemies interrupts their attacks, and in the case of the Riot Guard (who protects himself with a large metal riot shield) will put them in a vulnerable state where they’ll take damage from all weapons.
- Reloading: You gain ammo by performing tricks. The more complex the trick, the more ammo you’ll be able to gain. With the PS5 DualSense controller, you’ll be able to feel the lack of resistance in the trigger when you’re out of bullets use this to your advantage to let you know when your clip is empty and plan accordingly to keep your chamber full for next time.
