Closed alpha test features character customization, new arena, and new moves.

Roller Champions

Free-to-play team-based sports game Roller Champions will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and mobile in addition to its previously announced PC version, publisher Ubisoft announced.

A closed alpha test for Roller Champions will run on PC via Uplay from March 11 at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET to March 23 at 1:00 p.m. PT / 4:00 p.m. ET. Registration is available now at the game’s official website.

Here is an overview of the game and closed alpha test, via Ubisoft:

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with Ubisoft Winnipeg and Ubisoft Pune, Roller Champions is a new sports sensation delivering exhilarating and fast-paced team player-versus-player gameplay—on wheels. Two teams of three players are pitted against each other in arenas around the world, and players are cheered on by crowds of roaring fans as they acquire the ball, pass it to teammates and dodge and tackle opponents to score a goal in the illuminated hoop that appears above the rink.

The closed alpha provides players the opportunity to share their feedback with the development team as well as earn a reward; a phase-exclusive in-game outfit that they can keep when the game launches. In the closed alpha, players will be able to experience the fast-paced action and new features, including:

  • Character Customization: Players can create a character and choose from a list of 70 items to customize their character including gloves, skates, clothes and helmet/hair styles.
  • New Arena: Curvature, elevation and other environmental elements provide improved navigation and gameplay, and players will be able to experience the biggest and most impressive arena yet, Chichen Itza.
  • New Moves: Players can check out exciting moves, including the extended tackle and the air tackle, as well as new team moves like the grapple boost, grapple double jump and grapple double pump.
