Ubisoft’s Roller Champions free-to-play title finally has a new date
Ubisoft nailed it when it comes to the release date of Roller Champions. After several postponements, it should now be ready in the coming week: you should be able to get started on May 25, 2022.
The fast-paced sports game with team PvP mode should cause a sensation in the free-to-play model on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, PS5 (via backward compatibility), and PC. A unique feature: cross-play between the individual platforms is supported immediately. Later, there will also be implementations for Switch, Stadia, and Amazon Luna.
A quick refresher on what the title is actually about? Two teams of three compete against each other, try to get the ball into the goal and be the first team to score five points. The trick: the more laps are played in the arena, the more points a team can score, provided that this team is currently in possession of the ball. Whether dashing along the arena walls or using various tackling maneuvers, only those who work together as a team can achieve victory.
Winning matches and climbing the leaderboards open doors to increasingly popular stadiums and leagues, up to the elite Champions League. Over time, you can gain fans, discover new maps, and prove yourself in time-limited game modes. In addition to the many unlockable items, exclusive cosmetic rewards can be purchased with the Roller Pass each season. On the occasion of announcing the release date, Ubisoft has also released several new trailers that we don’t want to withhold from you.
As players rack up victories, they’ll climb the ladder of a championship league to gain new stadiums, maps, and fans. Your Champion can be customized with unlockable items earned both in-game and through a season pass (dubbed a Roller Pass). A social hub fashioned as a skatepark allows friends and other players to meet up, practice, or indulge in mini-games.
Roller Champions supports cross-play and cross-progression between PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC through the Ubisoft Store. The game is also playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S via backward compatibility. Ubisoft also plans to bring Roller Champions to Switch, Stadia, and Amazon Luna later. Roller Champions was first announced during E3 2019 with a pre-alpha demo. You can watch us take that version of the game for a spin in this episode of New Gameplay Today.
