New Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 Developer Diary | Broken Joysticks


New Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 Developer Diary

Activision’s team of developers are reaffirming their commitment to bringing the old school high score tallying playstyle of classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater games with this latest ViDoc for Tony Hawk’s Proskater 5.

Interviews with professional skaters interspersed with members of the developers make up the bulk of this new ViDoc. We get a better idea about some of the gameplay changes coming to THPS5 including the slamdown mechanic allows players to put a downward thrust on their boards to extend combos. Activision hopes that online custom skate park sharing and communities will entice an entire generation of skate fans to make their own creations.

Are you looking forward to THPS5? Let us know in the comments section!
