LONDON, UK— 4th March, 2020 — Today, Ubisoft announced the Closed Alpha dates for Roller ChampionsTM, the free-to-play team-based sports game where players skate, pass, dodge and score in a fan-packed arena, launching in 2020. Players* can sign up now for a chance to play the Roller Champions Closed Alpha starting on 11th March at 5pm GMT until 23rd March on Uplay for Windows PC.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with Ubisoft Winnipeg and Ubisoft Pune, Roller Champions is a new sports sensation delivering exhilarating and fast-paced team PvP 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 an exclusive in-game reward 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 Customisation: Players can create a character and choose from a list of 70 items to customise 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 arena yet, Chichén Itzá.
