What do you get when you mix rugby, basketball and rollerblades in one big mash up?
You get an awesome looking game called Roller Champions!
Roller Champions looks like a lot of fun. While Rocket League mixed soccer with cars with jet engines attached, Roller Champions mixes a bunch of things together for a fast-paced competitive bout of fun.
Have I Seen This Before?
When I first saw the gameplay trailer, my first thought was, “This is Motorball from Alita: Battle Angel!”.
Just a considerably less violent and brutal version.
The game is just as fast paced, though. I can imagine it has some heart-pounding moments when a player is about to score a goal with a rival player hot on their heels.
I can already hear my friends yelling in my ear when I miss a shot. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
Rules and Tricks
In an older video, it was shown that players have to hold onto the ball for a lap around the circuit to score a point. However, there is a bit of risk and reward.
A player can attempt to hold onto the ball for a few more laps in order to score even more points. But, if the ball is taken by the rival team, then all that work and effort is for naught.
I think it is safe to assume cosmetics will be all the rave about this game. In the trailer, there are trails that come off of the rollerblades, so I can already see that as a cosmetic.
It would be cool to customize our skaters and add our own flare to them. I’m pretty sure this will be a thing as so many other games are doing it these days.
Are you excited for this new endeavour by Ubisoft?
