Private Division, a Take-Two subsidiary, will be the publisher of Roll7’s next game, which will not be released on disc.
According to an announcement from Private Division, “Rollerdrome is a single-player third-person action shooter that seamlessly blends high-octane combat with a fluid motion to create an action experience like no other. Dominate with style in cinematic, visceral combat where kills net you health and pulling off tricks and grinds provide you ammunition in this adrenaline-pumping action shooter.
The year is 2030. In a world where corporations rule and the lines between reality and performance are blurred, the public is distracted by the violence and excess of a brutal new blood sport—Rollerdrome. Will you have what it takes to become the Rollerdrome champion and unravel the mysteries behind the Matterhorn corporation’s true intentions? From Roll7, the minds that brought you the award-winning and critically acclaimed OlliOlli series, comes Rollerdrome, an intense shooter-skater hybrid set in an evocative retrofuture.
An original hybrid shooter-skater that blends high octane, visceral combat with fluid movement and tricking mechanics into one complementary and challenging whole. Take on a unique challenge throughout the Rollerdrome tournament. Establish your dominance in the field with online leaderboards and push yourself to the limit with the unlockable “Out For Blood” mode for the most extreme test of skill and agility. An all-new, entirely original soundtrack merges iconic era sounds and tones with cutting edge production to provide a heart-thumping backdrop to the carnage brought to life with a unique comic-book-inspired art style. Discover a mysterious, sinister plot in this distinct retrofuture universe.” However, what is certain is that Matterhorn doesn’t have positive plans, but we’ll have to find out.
Look out for Rollerdrome on the PlayStation Store from August 16 (the game will be available for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4) and on Steam on PC. We know the price: it will be 30 USD/EUR.
