The skateboarding community have had one hell of a gaming year with EA confirming a new SKATE will be on the way, Tony Hawk’s dropping a full remaster of his best games, and Skater XL delivering a more simulation style affair to Xbox One, PS4 and PC. But it’s set to get better still and hot on the heels of Easy Day Studios confirming that Skater XL players will soon be treated to the first new community maps, comes a new trailer – one that details and dates the arrival of some community created gear and new skate brands into the game.
So, December 16th 2020 is the day when you’ll want to be grabbing your board and getting set with new content in Skater XL. Becoming available on Xbox One (and Xbox Series X|S), PS4 and PC via Steam will be a host of new content, with more than 250 additional pieces of gear , all created by some of the most passionate of Skater XL players.
Throw in the addition of customized decks, trucks, wheels, clothing, shoes, skins, and even beards and tattoos and consider the new drops of the three new community maps (Riverfern, Quebec Skate Plaza, and Applewood Park) showcased earlier in November, and the future for Skater XL is hot. And what’s more, this first drop marks the beginning of regular community content updates to Skater XL on all platforms – All at a Push of a Button!
Further to that, new skate brands will be officially landing in-game, giving you the chance to accessorize your skater with new gear from selected brands such as Illegal Civ, Uma Landsleds, Cariuma Footwear, MACBALIFE, and Am Grip. You can view all this in the trailer below.
If you haven’t yet picked up Skater XL but have been having fun with the likes of the Tony Hawk’s remasters, then perhaps from December 16th you should find yourself involved. It delivers a skateboarding paradise with levels that feature famous skate landmarks and environmental elements, including Downtown LA, the ginormous Big Ramp, Easy Day High, and community created maps like Grant Park, Hudland, and Streets. It’s all helped along by the fact you can play as skateboarding pros Tiago Lemos, Evan Smith, Tom Asta, and Brandon Westgate too. Just pop over to the Xbox Store and grab an Xbox download, or the stores of your favourite format if you’re prefering the other options.
