What Is Roller Champions?

Roller Champions is a 3v3 competitive multiplayer sports game played from a third-person perspective.

Likened to Rocket League, this game involves two teams that compete to score five points within seven minutes by throwing a ball into a goal.

To score players must gain possession of the ball and skate at least ONE lap without being interrupted by opponents.

Subsequent laps can be completed by other teammates by passing the ball to them. Players can earn more points per goal by completing more laps, though their progress will be lost when they are stopped by opponents.

Release Date

There is no official release date for the game, but it will launch in early 2020.

Platforms

The game has been confirmed to arrive on PC, Xbox One and PS4, Nintendo Switch and iOS and Android.

You can join the Roller Champions Discord here.

Price

The game is free-to-play but will likely feature in-game purchases.

 

Demo/Beta

No news has been announced about a beta or demo, but a pre-alpha demo was available on the Uplay store back in June 2019.

A closed alpha will run from 11th-23rd March - you can sign up here.

If you don't get selected you will end up on the waiting list and given a chance to get into the closed beta.

The final phase after this will be Season 0.
