Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is the first new Pro Skater game since 2002's THPS4.
Some good news for skateboarding fans today. After a whole lot of speculation and hints, it looks like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is now official, and it is coming out next year for all major platforms. GameInformer broke the news with a first look at the new game.
Developed by Robomodo, the studio responsible for Tony Hawk Ride, Shred, and Pro Skater HD, Pro Skater 5 is a return to the original Pro Skater franchise's feel and style, although with a few added new features. These include power-ups that you can collect throughout the levels, and at least one mission-specific ability that allows you to shoot some kind of projectile.
As well as the titular Tony Hawk, the game will feature Nyjah Huston, Aaron Homoki, Ishod Wair, Riley Hawk, Lizzie Armanto, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Leticia Bufoni, and Andrew Reynolds. The game will feature a full co-op campaign, that can be played both off and online with your progress "seamlessly" being saved between the two modes.
Just like the old games in the series, players will be able to make and share their own custom skate parks.
The game is slated to come out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later in the year, with PS3 and Xbox 360 versions following shortly thereafter.
