Roller Champions is brought to us by the good folks at Ubisoft. You know, for one of the major video game companies, Ubisoft have managed to not completely lose their soul and go over to the dark side like an EA or an Activision if you ask me! Anyway, this is a free to play game that I think could be a massive hit if it manages to catch on when it is finally released for all platforms. The game feels like it was first shown a million years ago, but it does finally look like it is getting ready to be fully released.
Become A Legend!
The idea of Roller Champions is that you create your own character and you then are aiming for sports superstardom! The sport in question here is a take on roller derby. Think of the movie Rollerball and you will have a basic idea of what the gist of this game is. You want to make it big and go from competing in the streets to competing in massive arenas with lots of fans and sponsors watching your every move.
Make A Lap And Score
The matches in Roller Champions are 3 vs 3. The way that you score is by gaining possession of the ball and then making a complete lap. Once you have made the lap, you earn a point. You can pass the ball, do tricks, and so on to try and maintain possession of the ball. When on defense, you have to try and tackle and steal the ball from the opposition. With this being 3 vs 3, you do have the opportunity to shine like a superstar, but at the same time teamwork and working together is ultimately going to be what makes or breaks things for you.
Hanging At The Skate Park
As well as taking part in competitive 3 vs 3 matches, Roller Champions also has an area that is called the skate park. The idea here is that you can practice and hone your skills before jumping into the more competitive side of the game. There will ve various activities, events, and so on taking place here. From what I can tell, the skate park is also going to be a real social hub for the game as well.
Will There Be Free To Play Trappings?
Of course, I cannot really say for sure what the free to play aspect of Roller Champions is going to be until Ubisoft fully release the game. However, we do know that customizing your character is going to be a huge part of the game. There could be licensed skills, Ubisoft has a ton of famous Ips of their own so it would not be crazy to think that there could be some premium skins or outfits based on stuff like Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, Rainbow Six, and Far Cry! Plus, it does look like there will be some kind of battle pass here as well, but it is fans you are earning more so than XP.
I think that Roller Champions is showing a great deal of promise. I love the idea of what the actual sport is and I think it is the kind of game that could be very competitive if you play with your friends.
One of the most awesome things about this game is that it is actually going to be available for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and even Nintendo Switch so it is going to be a game that everyone is going to be able to play and it will support cross play so getting into a game should be easy.
