Skater XL: Tony Hawk And Skate Get Competition [VIDEO]

It’s about time we get a decent skateboarding game, as it’s been years since the launch of Skate 3 – Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD and 5 were terrible.

Easy Day Studios, the dev team behind Skater XL, announced that the game, which is currently available on PC via Steam Early Access, will launch properly on Steam, as well as PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this July, allowing all of us to break all the bones of our virtual character. „Skater XL is a head-first dive into the skateboarding world, where style, creativity and the perfect trick is yours to define. Create, combine, and style tricks with unparalleled board control as you hit iconic California locations where street legends have left their mark. Play as skating icons Tiago Lemos, Evan Smith, Tom Asta or Brandon Westgate on your way to becoming a skateboarding pro. Dive into the digital skate subculture, with featured community created mods, brands, ‘zines, and maps. Hit more than 60 real skate spots connected by block after block of plazas, schools, pools, buildings, car parks and corridors.

[…] Skater XL is unique in that it doesn’t have any tricks programmed into it, only control of the movement through the thumbsticks. Each thumbstick is connected to the corresponding foot of the skater and as the player moves the stick, the board instantly responds. Much like a musical instrument, the player has complete freedom, whether it be pushing to nail a line or skating free from. […] The possibilities are endless for players to personalize their Skater XL experience. Players can customize their entire look, including their skater’s gear with different tees, hoodies, hats and shoes.

Each area is yours to explore. With the freedom of an open-environment, players will be able to push themselves, perfecting the subtle nuances of a highly technical trick or free form skate.

Players can become part of a bigger ecosystem and join the digital skateboarding subculture where they can share their creativity,” their website says.

Looks like Session is going to get some competition in July – and that’s good for us.
