Pretty much everyone is in agreement that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is not a good game, but if you stick with it a while longer you’ll be getting some free content for your troubles.
As for what the DLC includes, Activision promises two new stages and five more skaters will be added in future updates. No details were revealed on how all of this content will be released, though I would assume they would come in 2-3 more updates.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions don’t launch until November 10th.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 will launch at the end of this September, and when it does it will contain a few silly character heads to be used with custom skaters. Sony has revealed that their exclusive character heads will be Sackboy, Sweet Tooth and Ratchet, though Microsoft has yet to confirm what they have in store.
Outside of the goofy head news, it was also revealed that Freeskate hubs serve as 20-person lobbies with dedicated servers. It has been revealed by Sony that the reason the last-generation versions of the game are $20 is due to the fact that they won’t contain the current-generation version’s online component.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is developed by Robomodo for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It’s set to launch on September 29th for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though release dates for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions have not been confirmed as of this writing.
Even though it’s been complete mayhem with announcements due to E3 press conferences, that didn’t stop Tony Hawk from making an announcement of his own. The return of the Pro Skater series, called Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, will launch on September 29th for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox one.
This information was revealed via Tony Hawk’s twitter account, where he posted the following:
So, last-gen purists are being left out in the could again, with just a release window of “later this year”. Whatever, though, because PlayStation 4 will be where I check this one out and I can’t wait to see if it lives up to the hype.
It looks like the Pro Skater series is coming back very soon.
The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series was one of the most influential skateboarding games of the early to mid 2000’s, delivering endlessly fun gameplay year after year. However, as time passed the series eventually died out and instead we’ve seen a number of spin-offs that have been less than stellar.
Now, Tony Hawk is teasing fans with a new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game via a video on Instagram. The video features a live person acting out “choose your character” animations from the Pro Skater series, while even utilizing a song from Pro Skater 2.
The leak that the caption is referring to happened at a promotional event for the game earlier this month. Tony Hawk’s caterer released a photo from inside where an image on the back wall read Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. Seeing as Hawk is saying that Pro Skater fans will rejoice, it’s pretty much a sure bet that Pro Skater 5 is happening. Sweet!
Could a return to the pro skater franchise be in the works?
For those who have been keeping up with Tony Hawk video games, you probably already know that it has been a great big ball of disappointment for several years now. What was once a critically-acclaimed franchise that featured some of the best skating gameplay the world had ever seen eventually diminished into less and less interesting endeavors. This all lead to a game called Tony Hawk Ride that featured an actual skateboard peripheral that did not work in the slightest
However, Tony Hawk himself posted something on twitter that is bound to get fans excited. He posted the following:
“I’m currently working with Activision on a console game for 2015 (along with a new mobile game). I think fans of THPS series will be hyped.”
Could this mean that a return to the classic era of Tony Hawk games could be in the works? Who knows, but Tony Hawk has certainly gotten everyone’s attention for what is coming next year.
No Tony Hawk on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One for you!
Rumors have been swirling around about a new Tony Hawk game and fans have been absolutely foaming at the mouth at just the thought of a new Tony Hawk game on their PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Well, Tony Hawk himself has spilled the beans on the matter and has confirmed that the game is only coming to mobile devices. Boo… Continue reading “New Tony Hawk Game Is Mobile Only”
