A First Look At Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5

Tony Hawk is officially heading back to your nearest console, and we have the first wave of details right here.

Activision has shared the latest details for thew upcoming reboot of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater with Game Informer, and by all accounts the game is looking pretty good. Unlike the HD port that came out a few years ago, this new title is a brand new experience, and in a lot of ways they are taking it back to basics. Instead of miring it in one of the numerous offshoots the franchise has seen, Activision and developer Robomodo have went all in on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. The gameplay is heavily modeled after the first four Tony Hawk games, arguably the best stretch in the series, while also incorporating new additions such as power-ups and online co-op. A brand new host of skaters including the likes of Ishod Wair, Riley Hawk, Lizzie Armanto, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez and Andrew Reynolds, plus the Hawkman himself, will be tearing up a brand new set of levels, and the best part is we could have our hands on it relatively soon.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gamers will get the first crack at it when it releases sometime later this year, with the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions following soon after. We will keep you upadated as we hear more, but in the meantime, leave us your thoughts! How do you feel about a new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater?
