Activision has shared a new behind the scenes trailer for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 which features behind-the-scenes footage and interviews from developer Robomodo, as well as interviews with Tony Hawk and other in-game pros. It’s been 13 years since the release of THPS4, so these participants in THPS5 took some time to reflect on the franchise’s impact on their lives and what is motivating development today.
The release date for the next-gen versions of the game have also been confirmed: September 29, 2015 for the PS4 and Xbox One versions. While the release date for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are still TBA but currently planned for a 2015 release. The publisher also released the game’s boxart:
Additionally, Activision announced that GAME’s pre-order program for the game is now live. It features a collection of digital content inspired by the decade when Tony Hawk forged his legend: the 1980’s. Titled Totally Rad 80’s Pack, it includes the following in-game content: 80’s Tony Hawk Character Skin (skate as Tony Hawk from circa 1986 in all modes), 80’s Inspired Birdhouse board, and an Anti-Gravity Board. That’s right, float all over the place, shredding obstacles futuristically!
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 rekindles the signature style of classic Pro Skater games in a brand-new set of levels with the same renowned focus on daring objectives, fine-tuned controls including manuals and reverts for endless shredding and high-score tricks.
On PS4 and Xbox One, players will enjoy frictionless online multiplayer with over 20 friends and challengers at one time. Complete missions, unlock new content and level up online or offline, or go head-to-head on the fly against all takers in competitive matches. Players can also build their own skateparks to share with the community.
