Roller Champions Announced With Epic Cinematic And Gameplay Trailers (VIDEO)
Ubisoft’s E3 2019 presentation was chock full of exciting world premieres and new trailers for existing titles, with Tom Clancy franchise games taking the stage in a big way with reveals for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and Rainbow Six: Quarantine. There were some more light hearted titles on display as well, though, with Ubisoft officially announcing Roller Champions, the publisher’s roller derby answer to Psyonix’s Rocket League.
Having previously been leaked ahead of today, Roller Champions is a team-based, player-versus-player sports game wherein players are tasked with working their way up from street derby leagues to championships. Ubisoft released a world premier trailer for the game that can be seen below:
That isn’t the only roller derby excitement Ubisoft had planned, as the publisher also released a brief gameplay trailer that gives an interesting look into what goes on in the arena. Check it out here:
Here are some of the features of Roller Champions courtesy of Ubisoft:
GATHER YOUR TEAM AND COMPETE
- Team up with two players and dive into fun Roller Champions gameplay, which combines competitive action and collaborative team play.
- Go head-to-head against the opposing team through speed, wit, crushing tackles, and daring dodges to lap around the arena and be the first team to reach 5 points by throwing the ball through the hoop.
- Feel the thrill of riding up and down the wall of the arena as you gain speed, quickly stop, pivot, and re-calibrate your location as your teammate races toward the goal with just one pass away from winning or one interception away from losing.
Roller Champions is set to launch in early 2020, though there is currently a PC-only pre-alpha preview now available to play from today to June 14th.
