'Skater XL' (ALL) Also Comes To PS4 - Trailer

Skater XL is an evolution in skateboarding games, where you will experience unparalleled board control and responsiveness while you skate legendary real-world skate spots.

Skater XL has been designed with the smoothest, most responsive gameplay ever felt in a skateboarding game. Experience unparalleled board control and responsiveness while you skate legendary real-world skate spots. With an emphasis on physics-based board control and freedom of expression, the team has worked closely with the skateboarding community to capture the feel and experience of skateboarding to make it accessible for anyone with a passion for skateboarding culture and/or game genre. 

Incorporating extensive motion-capture, Easy Day built a custom animation system that composes real-time animations on the fly (versus canned animations), which are under the user’s control moment-to-moment, ensuring that no two tricks or sequences look alike. This gives the player freedom to be as creative as they like in putting together tricks and lines. A process known as photogrammetry was used to capture the new character model and a variety of gear, clothing and accessories for character customization.

Style and Control: With new ground breaking and intuitive controls, skateboarding in a video game has never felt more authentic, fluid, and responsive. Style tricks any way you want and make every trick and line your own.

Legendary Spots: Shred real world legendary skate spots, like the LA Courthouse which is featured in early access.

Since its debut on Steam’s Early Access, Skater XL's top request? - “Bring it to PlayStation 4!” 

Skater XL will launch later this year on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam - making it the first skateboarding game to come to all major platforms in more than 10 years. 

Skater XL is already racking up an impressive library of online videos, thanks to the community-created Replay Editor mod, and the feature will be incorporated into the game’s release. Much in the tradition of homemade videos in the skateboarding community, players can make their own video edits, mashups and highlight reels.

Feel connected to your board like never before.

Currently available on Steam Early Access, Skater XL is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2020.
