As it continues to roll along towards Gold status and an eventual release on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood developer Roll7 has decided to kick off the sequel’s trick-filled advertising campaign. As a result, we’ve just been treated to the game’s debut trailer, along with a press release that officially spills the beans.
Touting five new worlds, fifty new levels and a whopping two-hundred-and-fifty challenges, OlliOlli2 is looking to expand upon its predecessor in every way possible. This includes adding new tricks, venturing towards crazy locations — such as an Aztec temple and a zombie carnival — and incorporating multiplayer for up to four players. Add to that an expanded combo system and you have the recipe for another hit.
OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood is currently in beta, and to celebrate that and the above, the original OlliOlli is 70% off on European PlayStation platforms.
Check out the trailer above and press release below for more info.

Roll7’s MONSTER Follow up to the cult smash OlliOlli is in BETA…
The team at Roll7 in New Cross, London are tricking their way towards Gold for the much anticipated PS4 and PS Vita launch of OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood.
The trailer shows the skater grinding, flipping and launching through a host of stunning new worlds, with a more in depth look at ‘Combo Rush’ the new local Multiplayer mode, as well as a cheeky tease for the as yet unannounced 5th world (watch to the end!)
Roll7ers have been in Beta for a month now, which means all nighters, weekends and a half pipe full of sweat and tears, Game Producer Tom Hegarty says its all worth it; ‘We have really taken the development process to new heights for the sequel, with far more emphasis on making each level feel and look unique – all of the new levels in OlliOlli2 have been scrutinized, tested and iterated to the nth degree, we can wait to see what people make of it on launch’
To celebrate the trailer release, the original OlliOlli is currently a massive 70% off for Cross-Buy (PS3/PS4/VITA) in Europe! Get practicing…

Founded in 2008, Roll7 originally made ‘Serious Games’ and worked with At Risk Young people to create digital content for a purpose. After years of making content for other people, the studio finally shut its doors to clients and started making its own games – under visionary Game Designer, John Ribbins. The studio is currently working on OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood and Not A Hero, a game about a rabbit from the future – of course.
