Following a lengthy period of teasing a new game partnership, Activision and Tony Hawk have officially revealed the next game to star the skateboarding legend: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5.
The new game was revealed in the June issue of Game Informer magazine, which also includes a six-page preview. As the name suggests, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is being heralded as a return to the style of the first four Tony Hawk games.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 includes a new set of levels, complete with objectives, missions (including solo and online multiplayer). The online components are described as "seamless", and there's also a level creator that allows custom skate parks to be shared worldwide. Skaters featured in the game include Tony Hawk (of course), as well as Nyjah Huston, Aaron Homoki, Ishod Wair, Riley Hawk, Lizzie Armanto, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Leticia Bufoni, and Andrew Reynolds.
Robomodo, the studio behind Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, Tony Hawk: Ride, and Tony Hawk: Shred, is developing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. It comes out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year, and on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 shortly thereafter.
