Ubisoft announced a roller-derby game called “Roller Champions” Monday at E3. It’s a free-to-play, player-versus-player sports title that takes place in the near future.

“Welcome to 2029. Roller Champions arenas are built all over the world, and fans rush to the stands to admire their modern-day heroes, the Roller Champions. They roll up to 100 miles an hour, dash into opponents with visceral impact, wall-skate to the sky, and dunk while thousands of fans scream their names,” publisher Ubisoft says of the game. “As a Roller Champion, you compete in a team of three against three. The rules are simple: take the ball, make a lap while maintaining team possession, and score. You can go for more points by completing additional laps before attempting a goal. After each game, you gain fans, unlock sponsors, customize your character, and ultimately unlock impressive fan celebrations.”

Players can try “Roller Champions” free on Uplay from June 10 to 14.
