Rollerdrome Out Now on PC and PlayStation
Private Division and Roll7 announced today that Rollerdrome, an all-new, wildly imaginative third-person shooter-skater, is now available on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and on PC via Steam. This new IP comes from Roll7, the creators of OlliOlli World, one of this year’s highest rated games.
Watch the newly released launch trailer on YouTube.
Rollerdrome is a thrilling single-player shooter which brings together arena combat, fluid movement and technical tricks, to create “flow- state mayhem.” The game is set in 2030, in a world where the public are kept distracted from an increasingly sinister political movement by the violence and excess of a brutal new arena sport: Rollerdrome. Participants are chosen to compete in a series of gauntlets against the deadly House Players, combining eliminations with stylish tricks while completing numerous challenges as they try to survive.
Players step into the roller skates of Kara Hassan, a newcomer to the Rollerdrome tournament. As the mysteries of a corrupt tech giant unfold behind the scenes, Kara and the player will have to stay focused on their goal – climbing the ranks in hopes of becoming the next Rollerdrome champion.
Rollerdrome introduces a distinct retro-futuristic universe with a unique comic-book inspired art style. The soundtrack from Electric Dragon merges iconic 1970’s sounds with contemporary, driving beats to create a heart-thumping backdrop to the carnage.
“Rollerdrome pays homage to extreme action sports games through a ‘70s lens of a classic third-person shooter. It plays at a break-neck pace and is sure to get people’s hearts pumping,” said Paul Rabbitte, Creative Director at Roll7. “I cannot wait to see players showing off their craziest skating and combat combos.”
“Once again, Roll7 has delivered a bold, intense experience that feels refreshing,” said Michael Worosz, Chief Strategy Officer, Take-Two Interactive, and Head of Private Division. “We have the utmost admiration for Roll7’s constant readiness to break new ground, and Rollerdrome is proof that their experimentation leads to exceptional results.”
Rollerdrome is developed by Roll7, the BAFTA and multi-award-winning London based studio famous for making beloved and remarkable games like OlliOlli, OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood, OlliOlli World, Laser League, and NOT A HERO.
Rollerdrome is available for digital download for $44.95 on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4 as well as on PC via Steam. The game can be purchased at an introductory price of $29.67* on Steam and on PlayStation system by PlayStation Plus members of any tier. As of today, a free game trial is also available for PlayStation Plus Premium members.
