The price and release date has been confirmed for next-gen consoles. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is to be released on September 29, 2015 for Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions have not received an exact release date but are anticipated to release prior to the end of the year. Activision has also announced that the pre-order packages are now active for players to access.
The Tony Hawk franchise was a huge part of my life as a gamer. I can remember when I was a kid and I spent a shameful amount of hours nose-grinding and kick-flipping my way through parking lots and numerous skate parks. Now Tony Hawk Pro Skater will have its legacy in 2015 with the next-gen consoles. This means so much for the THPS fans. Now with online features that will allow players to interact with each other at skate parks, a new “create a park” system, a community styled campaign, all done with the traditional Tony Hawk Pro Skater mechanics. I am beyond stoked for the release of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 and I know fans like myself can’t wait to Ollie their way into this highly anticipated game of 2015
