Activision have released a new behind-the-scenes trailer for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5, introducing us all to the new and old faces that will experience our bails and our brilliance when the game releases in September (November for last gen).
As well as the obvious inclusion of the Birdman himself, Tony also made sure that the following skaters were invited into his resurgent title. These talents include Nyjah Huston, Riley Hawk, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Ishod Wair, Leticia Bufoni, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Andrew Reynolds, and Lizzie Armanto.
“I wanted a mix of pros that represent the diversity of skating today. Ishod Wair, David Gonzalez, and my son Riley were obvious choices because of their versatility and relevancy to modern skaters. The girls are represented well with two of the best: Leticia Bufoni on street and Lizzie Armanto on transition. Andrew Reynolds (aka The Boss) is still considered one of the best, so he is back representing the OG THPS skaters. Chris Cole and Nyjah Huston are contest dominators and phenomenal talents,” said Tony Hawk. “And Aaron ‘Jaws’ Homoki, is a modern-day stuntman on a skateboard, dropping off the biggest stuff he can find. He was a perfect fit for the over-the-top action of THPS5.”
The biggest selling point of the new Tony Hawk title is the addition of the online skate sessions which allows up to 20 challengers to play together at any given time. Complete missions, unlock new content and level up online or offline, or go head-to-head on the fly against all takers in competitive matches. Players can also build their own skateparks to share with the community.
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 launches on September 29th for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One followed by an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 launch on November 10th.
