Ubisoft has posted a new Roller Champions gameplay trailer today and announced their closed alpha will begin on March 11 and run through March 23. Fans can register today for the closed alpha, which will only be available on PC, via Uplay.
Have no fear console and mobile fans, Roller Champions is launching later this year on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile.
Closed Alpha players will get to skate in the new Chichén Itzá arena, the biggest arena playable to date. There are also a host of new moves to pull off, including the impactful extended tackle and air tackle, as well as the teammate-powered grapple boost, grapple double jump, and grapple double pump. The character customization system is also in place, with over 70 items to tweak your character’s gloves, skates, clothes, and helmet or hair.
Players will also have an opportunity to share their feedback with the development team. At the end of the Closed Alpha, player progression will be reset, but those players will be able to keep a special in-game reward, when the game launches. In the Closed Alpha, players will be able to experience the latest gameplay improvements, including Character Customization, Map Improvements and New Moves.
