Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is official and it sounds terrible


So when is Skate coming back?

After years in hibernation, the next full iteration in the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series is finally upon us and unfortunately it’s not sounding (or looking) good. After months of rumors and hints, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 will finally be a thing — whether it’s what you want or not.

Developed by Robomodo, this version of Tony Hawk looks to take the series in an interesting direction. While claiming to stick to its old-school roots, the game is adding power-ups and the ability to shoot projectiles. Yes, it truly is the skateboarding experience we all have come to know and love — rolling down the street while flinging light orbs out of your hands.

As for multiplayer, there will be online co-op and competitive play.

The game is set to be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year, while the old-gen versions will creep out sometime after that.
