Rollerdrome introduces a dark dystopian retro-futuristic universe with a unique identity. The game is set in 2030, in a world where the public is kept distracted from an increasingly sinister political situation by the violence and excess of a brutal new arena sport: Rollerdrome.
In a Running Man-like fashion, the line between reality and performance in Rollerdrome is blurred, where participants have chosen to compete in a series of gauntlets against the deadly House Players. Competitors in this spectacle attempt to achieve the highest score possible by combining eliminations with flashy tricks while also successfully completing numerous challenges.
Players step into the skates of Kara Hassan, a newcomer to this game of death. As the mysteries of a wicked tech giant unfold behind the scenes, the player will have to stay focused on their goal of climbing the ranks in hopes of becoming the next Rollerdromechampion.
“It’s been amazing to see this project come to life from the original prototype that received a lot of love online, all the way to the brutal and intense experience it is now – thanks to the amazing work of the team at Roll7,” says Paul Rabbitte, Creative Director at Roll7. “We’re really excited for players to jump into Rollerdrome.”
“Roll7 have proven that they successfully come up with truly innovative games that combine original gameplay with an outstanding art style,” said Michael Worosz, Chief Strategy Officer, Take-Two Interactive, and Head of Private Division. “Rollerdrome is another prime example of their innovative spirit as this talented group once again pushes the boundaries of movement with this wholly unique shooter experience.”
Rollerdrome will be available on August 16, 2022, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation5 as well as PC via Steam.
