Earlier today we got some more details about the upcoming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, but we didn’t get any new video until later on. The newly released THPS 5 trailer gives us a good look at the game, showing off its classic gameplay style, multiplayer, and the create-a-park features.
“Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 combines classic combo-driven skateboarding with objective-based single player action and seamless online multiplayer allowing you to take on challengers from around the world. Compete head-to-head with your friends on new and signature Pro Skater levels, or build and share your own skateparks for endless shredding. Ride, build, repeat!”
The trailer also shows off some of the multiplayer, which will be seamlessly integrated into the single player campaign. Players can join up into 20 player lobbies and skate around together, not really competing in any way. After that they can decide to begin a mission, or objective together, or go their separate ways.
With the series being gone for so long, and having went down unfortunate paths with some of the spin-offs, fans are likely most interested in just seeing how the game plays. Activision seems to be putting a heavy emphasis on the classic style that was revolutionized in the first Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.
THPS 5 will be released on September 29th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
