No levels. No load times. Just never-ending action that doesn't stop until you leave the game! Tony Hawk's American Wasteland gives you - for the first time ever in a Hawk game - the freedom to skate, or bike, throughout a rich, expansive open environment. Once you arrive in Los Angeles, the vast city that gave birth to skate culture, the sky's the limit as you progress through the Wasteland story and choose missions that will have you immersed in the action without ever skating the same line twice

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland lets gamers make an expansive streaming L.A. skate world their personal playground. The game allows players to skate and BMX bike from seaside Santa Monica, to the star-studded sidewalks of Hollywood, to the gritty streets of East L.A. as they customize and upgrade their characters, unlock new tricks and choose their missions without loads or levels. Tony Hawk's American Wasteland also takes the action to new heights with expanded controls that allow players to pull off more sick tricks than ever before and new multiplayer modes including a two-player co-op classic mode.

In a plot-twisting story that pays homage to the roots of skateboarding and punk style, Tony Hawk's American Wasteland puts players in the shoes of a young rebel skater who makes his way to Los Angeles, the mecca of skateboarding. Once there he must prove himself to Tony Hawk, legendary skaters such as Tony Alva, and local pros, while constructing the ultimate, trick-filled skate park. Gamers can customize their character all in-game as they travel throughout the vast areas of Los Angeles. New player controls, both on and off the board, allow for insane combos and include bert slides, stalls, Natas spins handstands, one-footed grinds and manuals, wall runs, wall flips, board smacks and board throws.

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland features online gameplay for up to eight players through GameSpy. In addition, Classic Mode returns with an all new two-player co-op mode where gamers can compete alone or alongside friends in their favorite Tony Hawk's Pro Skater levels as they race against a two-minute timer to complete favorite goals such as "Pro Score," "Combo Letters," and "Skate Letters."

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland was developed by Neversoft Entertainment and is now available for the PC for $39.99. The game is rated "T" (Teen - Blood, Crude Humor, Language, Suggestive Themes, Violence) by the ESRB.
