Roller Champions Gameplay
Roller Champions is described by Ubisoft as a free-to-play, skill-based, team PVP sports game. You race around a track on roller skates while dodging around and tackling opponents. You have to carry a ball and toss it into a goal.
According to Ubisoft the game is three versus three. Making more laps while your team is holding the ball will give you more points when you finally toss it into the goal, according to the publication. However, the lap counter will reset if the opposing team is able to knock your team down to grab the ball.
After each match, you’ll gain fans, unlock sponsors, get new customization options for your character and unlock “impressive fan celebrations,” according to the publisher.
