If you're old like me, you'll remember playing the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series back when they were released on the PS1/N64. Tony Hawk had been teasing everyone for months about a new game and now it's come to fruition via Game Informer. Let's hope the soundtrack is more akin to the original games.
Putting to rest months of cryptic tweets from Tony Hawk, Activision and developer Robomodo have officially announced Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 – a return to the classic gameplay of the series’ heyday.
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.
As the name indicates, Pro Skater 5 is a call back to the old-school lineage of the first four titles – back when the franchise was in its prime. The game weds the series’ finely tuned gameplay with new additions such as power-ups and the ability to shoot projectiles for specific missions.
