Roller Champions is kicking off the competition when it launches for free on May 25 on PC through the Ubisoft Store, as well as Xbox One and PS4 (plus Xbox Series X|S and PS5 via backward compatibility). The free-to-play roller-sports game will also be coming to Switch, Epic Games store, Stadia, and Amazon Luna at a later date. Roller Champions will feature cross-play and cross-progression at launch, so no matter what platform you’re playing on, you can team up with your friends and face off against well-matched opponents on your rise to glory.
In each match, you and two teammates will face off against another team of three in an elliptical arena. The goal is straightforward – reach five points before your opponents do – and the basics are easy to grasp. Keep control of the ball by skating and passing, steal it from your opponents with a well-timed tackle, and make a full lap of the arena to open up the goal and take your shot. Once you’ve got the fundamentals down, you can level up your game by practicing and socializing in the skatepark hub, and then using your skills in matches to execute team maneuvers and do multiple laps to increase the points each goal is worth. Teamwork, dedication, and daring are your keys to progressing from your scrappy beginnings through bigger stadiums and tougher competition all the way to the Elite Champions’ league.
You can continue your journey on whichever platform you play thanks to cross-progression, and you can unlock an array of stylish customization items as you gain fans and level up. As you progress through the free Roller Pass, you’ll earn gear for your skater, like helmets, gloves, outfits, and skates, as well as poses, goal FX, emotes, and other cosmetic items. Players can also purchase the premium Roller Pass to earn more exclusive gear that won’t be available in the item shop.
Roller Champions launches for free on May 25 for Xbox One and PS4; Xbox Series X|S and PS5 (via backward compatibility); and on PC through the Ubisoft Store. Learn more at the official Roller Champions site, and catch up on the latest news from Ubisoft in our latest weekly news roundup.
