Roller Champions Season 1 is live alongside patch notes that reveal what Ubisoft has done with the update. As you would expect alongside the launch of the game’s first season, there are new maps, new game modes, plus a large number of fixes and improvements to various aspects of the game. Unfortunately, the patch notes don’t include any information about the various file sizes for the update platform to platform.
As for the new maps, they take players to Brooklyn, Venice Beach, and Staten Island. Meanwhile, the new modes include Arena 8, Star Dash, Star Dash Supernova, and the return of Lootball Madness. And of course, there’s a season pass with 60 levels of cosmetics.
Below, you can check out the entire patch notes for the new Roller Champions update in their entirety:
Funk is all about rhythm, and so is Roller Champions. With Disco Fever you’ll make your way from Brooklyn to Venice Beach, then circle back to Staten Island in three new incredible maps, each with their own flavor and feel.
NEW ROLLER PASS
Disco Fever brings a new Roller Pass with 60 levels full of cosmetics, customizations, and a full collection of exclusive, groovy goodness. As with Kickoff Season, finishing the pass will recoup its cost in Wheels for those who are determined to disco forever.
NEW GAME MODES
Every weekend of Disco Fever brings a time limited special event. We’ll share the details each week in our Weekend Event Guide, so keep an eye out. But without spoiling too much of the surprise… get ready for: Arena 8 (Game Mode) — Star Dash (Minigame) — Star Dash Supernova (Minigame) — As well as a return of some fan-favorite modes from the Kickoff Season, including Lootball Madness (Minigame)!
