In this guide, we will show you the steps to fix the activation key issue when downloading Roller Champions from the Ubisoft Store. This 3v3 competitive multiplayer sports game has just made its way to numerous consoles. The objective is to earn five points within seven minutes by throwing a ball into a goal. While it may sound easy on paper, in reality, the gameplay is quite intriguing and challenging in equal rights. However, as of now, users are having to deal with an altogether different type of challenge.
While this game is free-to-play, but many users have reported that the Ubisoft Store is asking for a verification code/activation key/keycode. All this doesn’t really add up since a game model that adopts the free-to-play style doesn’t require any key in the first place. And, Roller Champions doesn’t really have any key either. As a result, users have no choice but to leave that field blank but that is then resulting in their inability to download the game. So is there any way out of this fiasco? Let’s check it out.
