Ubisoft’s upcoming free-to-play sports game combines rollerskating with basketball, so here’s how you can jump into the Roller Champions beta.
Roller Champions closed beta: Start time and how to sign up
Roller Champions might be gunning for a slice of Rocket League’s competitive pie, but it’s a very different beast from vehicular football. 

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Roller Champions is a team-based sports game which blends rollerskating with basketball - as you hope to score points by looping around tracks and shooting balls through hoops. 

While relatively easy to pick-up and play, there’s a layer of complexity beneath the high thrills. Not convinced? A closed beta will give players the chance to try out Roller Champions for themselves.

How do I sign up for the Roller Champions closed beta?

This beta isn’t open to everyone. In order to get your skates on, you’ll need to sign up by heading here, choosing your platform (Xbox One, PS4, or PC), and registering with your Ubisoft account. 

You’ll then receive an invitation to join if you’re successful, which will give you a key to download the closed beta on your system. 

The beta itself features friendly matches, ranked modes, along with limited-time events which will be rolled out over the beta’s course. It will also support crossplay across all platforms. 

Roller Champions closed beta is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
