oli oli world We’re almost here, and we’ve got another chance to experience the game in person before its release on February 8, 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

For those of you who might not know what OlliOlli World is, it’s a skateboard, side-scrolling action platformer from developer Roll7, which inherits the two linear and level-based games that made their name on the Vita years ago. game. This new game has a more open world focus, giving you more freedom in expressing yourself and advancing the game. rad.

Quite a bit has changed since we got our first preview. Now I’m going to show you more features in this release – but I still can’t show you everything. Thanks for the preview embargo.

To better understand what you need to know, you should take a look at the video at the top of this page. However, if you just want to see the top features we break down in the video, we’ve got it for you below:

  • custom made: Customization is an important part of OlliOlli World. Even if you start with a few options, there are many more to unlock as you hone in the game (no pun intended). You can unlock more gear by completing levels, completing challenges and perfecting your skateboard skills – so make sure you’re playing tricks wherever you go.
  • pace: The developers and writers understand that most people who play this game just want to skate and do tricks, so the dialogue is always short, lively, and filled with millions of skate puns, wordplay, and others of all ages A modern reference that everyone can appreciate. The developers of Roll7 are British and do sneak in some slang that only we can understand, which I love.
  • art direction: The art style is very good, both the level design and the way the characters are implemented. It’s very comfortable and dreamy, but don’t be fooled by its tantalizing presentation – Olliolli World will put your skills to the test, and in the later levels of the game, things do get technical and your reflexes need to be accurate. If you’ve played the early games, you know how difficult things can get as you get closer to the credits. Don’t rest on your laurels.
  • multiplayer game: If you’re feeling competitive, there’s a multiplayer section in the game called Gnarvana League, with daily competitions where you can group people online and see who can set the highest score before the day ends. It’s ranked, so you’ll be placed at your skill level, and if you’re ranked well, you’ll end up with some gear. Here’s a surefire way to break those thumbs.

OlliOlli World is a fun and stylish indie game that’s very satisfying to play, hits the right flow while using all the tricks you’ve learned, and makes you feel like a badass as you learn to connect the chains together . Running at full speed feels great, and the controls are responsive, easy to understand, and easy to use (once you get comfortable with them). Visual and visual are easy to pick up, and the multitude of replayability options will keep you from getting bored; you’ll never be forced to do the same thing over and over again.

It might launch in a crowded month, but OlliOlli World is a game you need to watch out for.
