Rollerdrome is set in a near-future in which players compete in a bloodsport of the same name, blasting enemies with various firearms whilst doing cool rollerskate tricks. We recently got a chance to go hands-on with the title and loved its combination of style, speed and motion.

In the latest instalment of PlayStation Underground, Roll7's Lead Game Designer Andreas Yiannikaris explains the mechanics of the game and some of the ideas and inspirations that led to its development, in addition to showing off a hefty helping of narrated gameplay.

It's a great taste of what's to come, and we don't have much longer to wait; Rollerdrome launches on PS5 and PS4 on 16th August.
