During Ubisoft’s E3 2019 conference today, they announced Roller Champions, a free-to-play, skill-based, team PvP sports game. Ubisoft say that it’s the next ‘must-play competitive online experience’.

You can watch the trailer for this high stakes and high pressure game below.

Roller Champions appears to turn roller derby into a Rocket League-esque sport.

There’s two teams of three players and your goal as a Roller Champion is to find the ball, take the ball, and throw it into the goal after a lap round the track without losing the ball.

Whichever team doesn’t have the ball will need to try their best to re-acquire the ball by roughing up the other players – within the game’s rules, of course, you can’t break anyone’s legs! – and keeping them away from the goal.

You can also score more points by doing cool things like completing additional laps around the track with the ball before attempting a goal. You know, just to rub it in your opponent’s faces.

After each game, you’ll gain fans, unlock sponsors, customise your character, and ultimately unlock impressive fan celebrations.

The game has a pre-alpha demo that’s available today via Ubisoft’s just announced subscription service, UPlay. The demo will run from June 10th until June 14th and you can register for it here.
