Ubisoft is throwing open the doors to Roller Champions – its free-to-play team-based skater – next month, with a European-exclusive closed beta for players on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Roller Champions, if you're unfamiliar, is Ubisoft's stab at creating the kind of raucous, knockabout sports mash-up that's made Rocket League such a perennial favourite, and it plays something like a fast-paced hybrid of competitive roller-skating, hockey, and football.
Each game see two teams of three players hurtling around a track in an attempt to wrestle the ball from one another. When the ball is finally in a team's possession, they need to complete at least one lap before pelting it into the goal. Additional points can be earned by holding onto the ball for multiple laps before taking a successful shot.
