Skater XL Gets Free Multiplayer Mode On PC

The mode is coming to Skater XL on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well.


Developer Easy Day Studios has rolled out a multiplayer mode for its skateboarding simulator Skater XL. The mode, which is in beta, is only available on Steam, though Easy Day confirmed the feature will come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One soon.

The free multiplayer mode lets up to 10 players hop into a server to skate together. Players can create group lines to save and watch later as replays, with the same editing functionality as the base game. In order to check multiplayer, players must opt in by right-clicking on Skater XL and open "Properties." From there, select "beta - Open Beta," which will start downloading the multiplayer mode. It can be turned of at any time.

Easy Day said it is "stress test[ing]" the beta on PC first to gather data on how the servers perform before "rolling the basic Free Skate mode out cross-platform."

In an announcement video, the mode is said to be "coming to Xbox and PlayStation in the near future." Check out Skater XL's multiplayer gameplay below.

In other Skater XL news, the game added the legendary skating spot San Francisco's Embarcadero last month, further bolstering its community-created content.
