With the stunning Stray now rubbing its whiskers against PS5 consoles worldwide – be sure to check out our Stray guide for more – Sony’s slowly turning its attention to the next big indie in its console exclusive arsenal. That’s the gorgeous, cel-shaded Rollerdrome – a kind of white-knuckle blend of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and a third-person shooter.
Naturally, the release will tap into the PS5’s flagship features, and here’s a trailer depicting what you can expect. It’s the usual suite of stuff, to be honest: on the DualSense side you’ll be able to physically feel every explosion, while the adaptive triggers will make firing shots feel extra immersive. There’ll also be 3D audio, so expect to hear bullets whiz by as you approach each skirmish.
Sounds great, but it also straight-up looks great, doesn’t it? We’ll have a lot more on Roll7’s latest arcade offering in the not too distant future.
Let’s hope you are blind and this causes your other senses to become more powerful then, cos graphically…yikes
@Playstationuser What? The artstyle is amazing!
@get2sammyb Agreed, its not all about "TeH RaYtRaCIn" Love the Rollerball style fonts too"
@Playstationuser I think it looks pretty great despite my latest outing with a similar looking game (Sable) being rather negative but your comment caught me off guard 😂
@get2sammyb I agree. More unique art styles, please!
Its released on the 16th..could that mean there's a chance it will be another PS extra game like Stray since new games will be added during the middle of each month?
@get2sammyb if it was so amazing it’d be more widely used. It’s not
@Oh_fiddlesticks a good chance actually. The time it releases is when the store updates the PS+ games and not midnight like most releases.
@Playstationuser what are you talking about? Cel shading is extremely common in games these days. There's even AAA games like Genshin Impact and Borderlands that use it.
@get2sammyb i think it looks pretty cool..games dont have to sport the cutting edge graphics that other titles have to be a brilliant game and this looks like its going to be a hell of a lot of fun..
This game looks so sick.
As others have side think it might be a PS Plus inclusion.
@Playstationuser "sable" off the top of my head. Great indie game with that art style.
@Oh_fiddlesticks was thinking the same. Hope this will be the case. Really enjoying stray so far and hope for more great day one releases of smaller games.
This looks like a lot of fun! Big fan of the art direction.
I guess if it is truly amazing art style it will win major awards for it and if it’s not actually amazing and just different but not remarkable it won’t. Time will tell 👌
@Playstationuser This is how I know that Cuphead looks bad. No one else make games using that style.
Major awards are not the be all end all of determining quality. There are plenty of things i consider masterpieces that never won any awards for whatever reasons.
@PegasusActual93 this will be another then
"physically feel every explosion"
Sony announce new TNT thumb sticks for Dual Sense.
