OlliOlli Update & Giveaway: Leaderboards Coming, Cross-Buy Confirmed

Simon Bennett's Avatar + Posted by Simon Bennett on Jun 03, 2014 // General Dogsbody, roll7

Simon from Roll7 here!

They say that the best things come in threes – (or is that buses?) Anyway….

Everyone at Roll7 is ecstatic to say that the latest patch for OlliOlli on the PS Vita has finally fixed the crash bug that has been causing inconvenience to a small number of players. It’s with Sony’s QA team and should be rolling out for users before June 20th.

It’s been a busy period at our New Cross HQ lately, so we want to give massive props to our friends and partners at BlitWorks for narrowing down and finally terminating this nasty little menace.

Secondly, we have another big patch in the pipeline for June. This second patch will add fully functional Leaderboards to the game. For a game about tricking the living hell out of your friends and the world, we think this will be one hell of an important update – one that the OlliOlli community has been asking for since launch!

Thirdly, we can now officially announce the news that you have been waiting for – OlliOlli will be a Cross-Buy title! So if you own it on PS Vita, you’ll get it on PS3 and PS4 for free so you can play it on the big screen – with Cross-Save support.

OlliOlli Giveaway

To celebrate this little ménage a trois of good news, and the forthcoming release of OlliOlli on PS3 and PS4, we’re going to be giving away 100 free game codes (for EU and US) on our Twitter and Facebook channels today.

It’s super easy to win. No science, no math, no nothing. All you have to do to win a free copy of OlliOlli is: Follow @Roll_7 on Twitter, and Retweet one of the select competition tweets. These tweets will be sent out periodically throughout the day.

The closing time for the competition will be 12pm GMT on Monday 9th June. Winners will be contacted via Direct Message on Wednesday 11th June. The competition is open to both EU and US PSN users.

PS – Oh, we have a sexy little exclusive for Not A Hero at E3 – tweet us if you can spot it!

I also can’t wait to play this on PS4. I picked this game up on a whim about a month ago and was addicted to it for a week straight. Awesome of you guys to give away a bunch of codes as well!

Absolutely love this game. I will enter the contest to see if I can get a copy for my buddy, so I can make him try to beat my scores :) The only trophy I have left is the one to get ALL the tricks. The fact that I beat RAD Mode is more impressive in my mind though! Looking forward to playing this game ever more guys!

I love this game and I’m quite excited to come back to it. The crash bug frustrated me to the point where I shelved it.

Leaderboards? Cross-buy and cross-save with PS4? Icing on the cake! It’s not the big screen that excites me, it’s the chance to use the DS4. I can’t wait!

Haven’t bought this one yet, but having crossbuy may help me to reconsider.

I really need to get this game. I heard nothing but good things!

I like that this will be available on PS4 and Crossbuy/save with Vita.

I do not like your viral marketing disguised as a giveaway however.

Why don’t you just give copies to people that comment in the blog for eu and us. You could do it at random or any number of methods.

Follow and retweet on twitter

and while less offensive but still spamming our “social network’

like on facebook and like competition post.

Not interested in either of these things. Just be upfront and say we are trying to generate buzz / sales …

As is I will wait for a %50 off sale or included w Plus.

Good day.

Roll 7, since you guys have bothered to make it Vita and PS4 compatible (in order to play the game on the bigger screen), does that mean we’ll get to see a PS Vita TV support anytime soon?

+ teradome on June 3rd, 2014 at 1:44 pm said:

Thank goodness! I was one of the players getting the bug and it eventually was happening so often that I just stopped playing it. Will be very happy to get a stable version!

Oh hell yes! I definitely would rather play this on a big screen! And with the superior analog sticks of the DualShock! Thank you roll7!

Glad to see that crash bug is getting fixed. Happens about 75% of the time I play. Had given up playing for a while because of it.
