New screenshots and more gameplay details released for Activision's upcoming skateboarding game.
Following the initial reveal of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 earlier this week, Activision on Thursday formally announced the skateboarding game, revealing more gameplay details and offering new screenshots.
Pro Skater 5 aims to retain the franchise's iconic combo-driven gameplay, while also pushing the formula forward with a new online mode.
Tony Hawk himself definitely sounds amped.
“Skateboarding has always been about the freedom of ripping with your friends, and creating a game that captures that feeling has been a vision of mine since the Pro Skater series began over 15 years ago," Hawk said in a statement. “I'm beyond excited to see that dream finally come true with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, which takes the old-school attitude of the original games online in a big way."
Pro Skater 5 will feature new levels and "fine-tuned controls," while also introducing power-ups and even projectiles that should "change up the core skating experience." You can create your own character, or choose from a roster that includes:
- Tony Hawk
- Nyjah Huston
- Riley Hawk
- Aaron “Jaws" Homoki
- Ishod Wair
- Leticia Bufoni
- Chris Cole
- David Gonzalez
- Andrew Reynolds
- Lizzie Armanto
Pro Skater 5 also introduces a new online multiplayer mode. Players will be able to drop in and out of online sessions with friends and random people. While online, you'll be able to take on missions, go head-to-head, and unlock new content. Activision says you can also "level up," suggesting the game has some form of level/ranking system.
What's more, Pro Skater 5 has a park-builder feature that lets players create their own skateparks and then share them with the community.
Pro Skater 5 is currently in development at Robomodo and Disruptive Games. The game will be released later this year, first on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, before coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later. Release dates will be announced in the coming weeks, Activision said.
