Today, Ubisoft announced Closed Alpha dates for Roller Champions, 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 beginning March 11 at 4 pm UTC (9 am PT) through March 23 at 8 pm (1 pm PT) on Uplay for Windows PC.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with Ubisoft Winnipeg and Ubisoft Pune, Roller Champions is set to deliver Roller Derby fast-paced team PvP gameplay.
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 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, Chichén Itzá.
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.
