Activision released a new behind the scenes look at Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. Titled The Skaters, Pt. 2, it shows the many varied techniques developer Robomodo is using to capture the look and feel of the sport and its pros. It also explores the challenges of balancing the classic arcade style of Pro Skater’s legacy with current-gen consoles.
This rebirth of sorts rekindles the offbeat style of classic games in a brand-new set of levels with the same over-the-top focus on daring objectives, tight controls and endless shredding for high scores. Jump in and out of online sessions with up to 20 players at a time to complete missions, unlock new content, and take on challengers in head-to-head matches (exclusively on PS4/Xbox One). The game includes tools for players to create and share their own skateparks.
The game features ten of the world’s top pros: Tony Hawk, Nyjah Huston, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Ishod Wair, Leticia Bufoni, Riley Hawk, Chris Cole, Lizzie Armanto, David Gonzalez and Andrew Reynolds.
“Activision and Robomodo have really worked closely with the pros to make sure Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 feels true to the original series, and that is obvious when you’re playing,” said Tony Hawk. “There is a great mix of styles and personalities in the game – and it’s a blast to see each skater represented to the last detail.”
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is skating to stores next week, on September 29th and October 2nd in North America and the UK respectively for PS4 and Xbox One. While an online-less version will release for PS3 and Xbox 360 on 10th November; exclusively at GAME in the UK.
