Go behind the scenes with developers Robomodo as they show the techniques used to capture the look and feel of skating in Activision’s upcoming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 rekindles the offbeat style of classic Pro Skater 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 (online play exclusive to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One). The game includes tools for players to create and share their own skateparks. It also 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 scheduled to launch on 2nd October for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game is also planned for release without online play on Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 on 10th November, exclusively at GAME in the UK.
