Ubisoft’s free-to-play roller derby-inspired game, Roller Champions, will finally be released on May 25. This game was first announced at E3 2019 and hasn’t had much news around it since.
Roller Champions is a 3v3 fast-paced, team-oriented sports game that fuses skating, racing, and rugby. Players skate around a race track, trying to score through a hoop to gain points. The tricky part is to earn more points by maintaining the ball and completing laps while the opposition tries to tackle you.
As you play the game and win matches, you will climb up the championship league ranks and gain new maps, stadiums, and fans. Your champion can also be customized and there are two ways of earning in-game cosmetic items. The first is by participating in matches, and the second is through Ubisoft’s Roller Pass, the Roller Champions seasonal pass.
Roller Champions will be Everywhere soon.
So far, Ubisoft’s newest sports game will be available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The game will also support crossplay and cross-progression among all three platforms. Sweet! Players can meet up in an online skate park with other champions from different consoles to practice their skills and enjoy mini-games.
However, if you are on current-gen consoles, you can play the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S via backward compatibility. Hopefully, Ubisoft releases a current-gen version of the game with updated graphics and better FPS further down the line. Lastly, Ubisoft plans on bringing the game to Nintendo Switch, Stadia, and Amazon Luna sometime after launch.
