Let’s Take Another Look At Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5

We haven’t checked in with Tony Hawk and crew for a few weeks so let’s grind on thru the latest updates for the upcoming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5.

First up is a brand new behind the scenes video documentary featuring the birdman himself. This new video features several real world skaters from different eras of skating and lets you get to know them a little bit more. If names like Riley Hawk, Ishod Wair, Chris Cole and Lizzie Amanto don’t ring a bell – don’t worry there is tons of time to catch up.

Next up is reveal of the game’s soundtrack featuring a very distinct rock and pop punk mix. You’ll be rocking out to bands like Anti-Flag, Doomtree and Icon for Hire while you grind down rails and practice catching some sweet air. As a fan of the pop-punk genre myself I am looking forward to the inclusion of a few of these bands.

Why not have a look at the full set-list below:

Anti-Flag – “Stars and Stripes”
Atmosphere – “Southsiders”
Black Pistol Fire – “Hipster Shakes”
Bully – “Milkman”
Cloud Nothings – “I’m Not Part of Me”
Cold Cave – “A Little Death to Laugh”
Connie Price and the Keystones – “International Hustler”
Crass Mammoth – “All 149”
Deaf Poets – “Degenerate Mind”
Death – “Keep On Knocking”
Death From Above 1979 – “Virgins”
Deer Mother – “When The Wolves Come Out”
Doomtree – “Mini Brute”
Fake P – “Rorschach”
Family Force 5 -“Raised By Wolves”
Four Year Strong -“Go Down In History”
Harlan – “Moment To Myself”
Hundred Visions – “Our Ritual”
Hungry Hands – “Highline”
Icon For Hire -“Cynics and Critics”
Killer Be Killed -“Wings of Feather and Wax”
New Politics -“Everywhere I Go”
Plague Vendor – “Black Sap Scriptures”
Ratatat -“Cream on Chrome”
RattBlack – “Skate Rock”
Royal Blood – “Little Monster”
State Champs – “Secrets”
Temples – “Shelter Song”
The Orwells – “Who Needs You”
The Schitzophonics – “Rat Trap”
The Sheds – “Bad Things are Bad”
Yogi & Skrillex – “Burial”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 returns to the series’ arcade roots featuring a renewed focus on objectives, classic control methods like reverts and manuals and of course chasing that ever elusive high score. The current gen version’s online lobby system on PS4 and Xbox One also looks like a really neat addition.

THPS5  will be out on September 28th in North America for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and will be out for last-gen Xbox 360 and PS3 on November 10th.
