The Roller Champions hit will be streaming platforms like Twitch in the coming weeks. At the invitation of Ubisoft, Enemy You can pre-test the game, note that it is one of the most creative and fun ventures of the developer.
With the addition of new mechanics from the beta period, Roller Champions now shines with a creative, fast-paced game, unlike anything the company has worked on before. Matches go beyond skating, combining different aspects of sports such as basketball and even American football. Added to simple commands, the gameplay is intuitive, making it comprehensive for a diverse audience of players.
The main matches of the game end with PvP (Player vs. Player) matches between two or three teams, where the team that reaches the first 5 points wins. When working together, each trio must advance along the track, pass the ball, and dribble to opponents before reaching a goal that takes the form of a high hoop. However, in order to activate a goal and score a goal, it will be necessary to cross at least four barriers arranged on the map without losing possession of the ball. If successful, the team can also continue to advance over the barrier, increasing points by hitting the ball into the goalpost. However, if the opposing team manages to steal the ball, all advances in the barriers will be lost, which is necessary for the ball to recover to restart it.
No matter how difficult the explanation may seem, only a quick game will be needed to start navigating, charging and passing ball commands against the bots.
Another aspect that makes Roller Champions available is its size – it only takes 4 gigs to install a game file. In addition, at least at this point, it is suggested that the player can enjoy the full experience offered by the game for free, while the extra paid is limited to collectors such as emotions, clothes, accessories, hair and more. The game’s free progression contains 150 collectors, while the Combat Pass adds 42 more unique collectors.
Access to the full game does not take much time, as access to all modes requires only ten game matches. Then, custom matches, ranked series, and temporarily available modes such as 2v2 encounters will be unlocked.
There is no doubt, however, that the game still lacks some tweaks to this release. During the test, the title itself was closed at least twice, except that the server showed significant instability, making it difficult to connect and keeping all players in one match without crashing into one of them. In addition, while playing on the computer, the game experienced a sudden drop in FPS during matches. Luckily, though, these are issues that Ubisoft will easily address with future updates and not hurt the title’s long-term potential.
Prioritizing fun and competitiveness, Roller Champions is an exciting addition to Ubisoft’s library of titles that invests in multiplayer, with the potential to go viral on streaming platforms like Fall Guys. However, the success of the game will depend on how well the developer maintains it, especially in terms of performance and connection issues.
