During the June 2022 State of Play it was announced Rollerdrome, a roller-skating shooter coming to PS5 and PS4. The announcement was accompanied by a gameplay trailerwhich you can view in the player above, thanks to which we can get an idea of the dynamics and reveals the release date of the game by Private Division and Roll7 (authors of OlliOlliWorld), set for the next August 16.
As we can see from the presentation video, Rollerdrome is a shooter on roller skates, where the player will have to face human and machine opponents by shooting wildly with various guns while speeding on skates in an arena, complete with spectacular evolutions and dodges that activate a sort of bullet time in slow motion.
It is undoubtedly an interesting formula, accompanied by a peculiar cartoon style but which gave us the impression of marrying well with the game. In any case, before making any judgments, we expect to try Rollerdrome by hand on August 16th, the day of the debut on PS5 and PS4.
“Rollerdrome is a single-player third-person action shooter that seamlessly blends intense combat with fluid movement to create an unprecedented thrilling experience. Show who you are in style in cinematic and visceral combat in this fast-paced action shooter, where you can recover life by killing enemies and accumulate ammunition by making tricks and grinds “, reads the official description of the PlayStation Store.
“We are in 2030. In a world governed by corporations where it is not easy to distinguish between reality and spectacle, the public is distracted by the violence and recklessness of a new brutal and bloody sport: the Rollerdrome. Will you be up to becoming the Rollerdrome champion and uncovering the mysterious true intentions of the Matterhorn company?”
“The Roll7 team, creators of the award-winning and acclaimed OlliOlli series, is proud to present Rollerdrome, a compelling combination of shooter and skating set in a striking retro-future.”
