"Looking back to the conception of the game, we wanted Rollerdrome to be fast, fluid, and exciting – we were shown an early gameplay prototype by the Creative Director Paul Rabbitte, and seeing the potential, we quickly assembled an incredibly talented team to turn what was a promising concept into a visceral and stylish game," said Tom Hegarty, Founder and Studio Head at Roll7. "I’m now super excited that we are able to share it, once more, with a whole new group of Xbox and PC players."

The game is set in 2030, you play the role of Kara Hassan, a new contender in the Rollerdrome tournament. In Rollerdrome, you face a series of gauntlets against the deadly House Players. By combining eliminations with stylish tricks, you will earn the favor of the destruction-loving crowd and, potentially, your freedom. Strap on your skates and load your clip. Victory is survival.

"We knew we had something special last year when Rollerdrome was first released, and that feeling was validated by critics and players from around the world. The overwhelming positive reaction fueled our development and helped us bring it to other platforms," said Krystal Lim, Producer at Private Division. "Now, it is as if we are launching this game anew, and we are lucky to be able to share it with a whole new audience."

Rollerdrome presents a unique, retro-futuristic universe beautifully drawn in a comic-book inspired art style. The game pays homage to extreme action sports games through a ‘70s lens of a classic third-person shooter. Not only does this graphic novel style capture the look and feel of this world, but it also reinforces the visceral combat in a clear and discernable manner. The bold color palette and character outlines draw your eyes to focus on the next incoming threat, direction to turn, or the necessary goal – even when a massive rocket explosion or spray of bullets races towards you.

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 $29.99 on Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC. It is available to play now with Xbox Game Pass for console, PC, and cloud. The game is also available for digital download on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4 as well as on PC via Steam. Rollerdrome is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
