The gameplay of Roller Champions is easy to pick up, but difficult to master. Well organised teamwork is just as important as individual skill.
The rules are simple – your team needs to capture the ball, and complete circuits of an oval course while dodging your competitors, then score by throwing the ball through an elevated goal. The first team to score five points wins.
Completing a single lap before scoring awards one point, while holding onto the ball for three laps will score an epic five points, instantly winning the match.
It sounds easy, but with three opponents hell-bent on taking you out you’ll need to think smart and use strong defensive tactics, as well as utilising the steep sided circuits to launch yourself up and over your opponents. Knowing when to pass and when to tackle could make the difference between glorious victory and crushing defeat.
Our very own Andy Miranda (OMA Monster) has been hands-on with the early-access beta, check out his video below:
Roller Champions is free-to-play, but rather than include questionable pay-to-win mechanics, Ubisoft has focussed on cosmetic upgrades. There’s a huge amount of customisation features available, with many unlockable through persistence and just playing the game. Much like games like Rocket League or Fortnite, fans who want to support the devs can purchase premium customisation options.
It’s worth pointing out that progress earned in the Closed Beta will not carry on to the full game when it releases.
Roller Champions closed beta is available on PS4/5, Xbox One/Series X|S and PC (new-gen console owners can play via backwards compatibility).
