Good news - Roller Champions announced that the game has gone Gold. This means a release date is right around the corner as the game is in its final stages of development.
What Is Roller Champions?
Roller Champions has been around for a while, in name only. Originally announced in 2019, it has faced some delays but is now finally within touching distance.
The free-to-play game comes from Ubisoft, and features multiplayer and solo sports-based activities in a cross between roller derby and basketball. We know that there is a Ranked mode, as well as custom matches and the new Skatepark - a laid-back area where you and your team can practice or take part in activities.
You play as a Champion, which can be fully customised with a huge wardrobe and range of cosmetics. While skating for glory, you’ll need to gain sponsors and complete goals to get rewards, while achieving success and moving to better stadiums.
Roller Champions Release Date
Ubisofts’ new team game still hasn’t got a solid release date, but has been narrowed down to late spring 2022. That could mean any day now, given that the previous date given was March. Eager players can pre-register on the official site to be in the know as soon as the release date drops.
Roller Champions Gameplay
Roller Champions focuses mainly on the multiplayer games, where teams of three battle it out to score the most goals and zoom around the most laps. Characters appear in third person, allowing you to admire your cool customisation.
Teams win games with points, which are earned from goals and the laps completed before scoring them. To win, teams will need at least five points in each seven-minute match. You only need one lap while in possession of the ball, but the more you complete, the more points you’ll earn. You can throw the ball to teammates to carry on laps, too.
