Tim Robinson Basically Did An I Think You Should Leave Sketch To Reveal Skate's Story

I Think You Should Leave's Tim Robinson plays a desperate M-Corp executive in Skate's new promo.


If you were hoping that Summer Games Fest 2024 would have a substantial update on the status of Skate, then you may have been disappointed. Only a brief glimpse at the fourth game in the series was shown to fans. However, EA and Full Circle did surprise gamers with a new Skate promo that features I Think You Should Leave star and skateboard enthusiast Tim Robinson in a comedy skit that captures the flavor of his Netflix series.

In the sketch, Robinson plays Richie Dandle, an executive at M-Corp. The company has apparently rebranded with a friendlier name than its previous incarnation as MongoCorp in the earlier Skate games. Throughout the video, Richie attempts to convince the viewers that there's nothing to the rumors that M-Corp has abandoned San Vansterdam, even as his co-workers desperately attempt to destroy evidence before they flee the office.

It's only in the last 30 seconds of the video that "pre-pre alpha" footage of Skate shows players turning the entire city of San Vansterdam into a giant skate park. The clip also suggests that it may be possible to add customized touches to the city landscape in addition to the usual round of skateboarding tricks.

Skate doesn't currently have a release date. But gamers are invited to sign up for console playtesting through Skate's official site. The playtesting will begin this fall.
