First feelings Roller Champions is a surprisingly good sports game – only prejudices and a tollo name stand in the way of the success of Ubisoft’s novelty

Roller Champions is a unique addition to the category of sports games. The game combines roller skating with fast-paced and team-based ball play. We got to test Ubisoft’s upcoming multiplayer in advance.

Roller Championsissa played on an oval track resembling a velodrome. Three teams play on both teams and the goal of both teams is to score as many goals as possible. The team that succeeds in collecting five points first wins the game.

The goal can be scored if the team manages to transport the ball around the entire oval orbit without the opponents getting in. After that, the ball still needs to be thrown through the ring. If this is successful, the team will be rewarded with one point.

Additional points are awarded if the team manages to rotate the ball several times. A goal scored after two rounds earns three points, while a goal scored after three rounds directly earns five points and wins the game. There is a risk in greedy for extra laps – if the opposing team manages to deprive the ball even once, the laps will be reset and roller skating around the field will have to start over.

One of the best features of the Roller Champions is its simple rules and the idea of ​​the game is easily learned in the first round of play. Another good feature is that the movement of the roller skating game characters is sleek and fast-paced. When moving, you can and should take advantage of, for example, the curved edges of the velodrome, because speeding down the ramp naturally accelerates the pace of the game character. Whenever possible you should have a game controller with a better mouse and keyboard feel.

Roller Champions is a truly invigoratingly different sports game that stands out from the crowd.

Playing is fun and the smooth movement feels good. Because the matches are quite short, you have time to visit the arena quickly, for example during a telecommuting lunch break. Despite the simple idea, the skill ceiling of the game is probably quite high and skilled players can stand out from the crowd. In particular, the functionality of teamwork is put to the test when the ball has to be fed while dodging opponents, and it is considered with teammates at a pace whether you want to take a risk with the ball in the form of additional rounds.

Despite its fun, I don’t necessarily predict a very rosy future for the Roller Champions.

Probably the biggest problem with Ubisoft multiplayer is that roller skating isn’t very much on the surface in today’s world, and Sports Games aren’t necessarily quite the hottest hots in the gaming world anyway. I myself had a fairly high degree of pre-emptiness for the game in advance and I am terribly afraid that many will not get to know the Roller Champions on the basis of a name that just sounds a little boring.

Players ’prejudices can stop Roller Champions rounds right from the start. If a multiplayer game doesn’t gather critical player mass right from the start, collecting it later is very tedious. While the game’s closed beta is already underway, there doesn’t seem to be any hype around the Roller Champions, for example on internet game-related discussion boards.

However, I recommend trying the Roller Champions in practice before you start the game, because at least for me, it was a positive experience as a whole. You can apply for the closed beta via Ubisoft’s website. The official release date of the free-to-play sports game is not yet certain, but the release is expected to take place later this year.
