Skate series has made a long way and has received a good attention from fans and critics. However, it is five years now since Skate 3 and it is time to think about the fourth part.
Will there be a Skate 4? Electronic Arts promised to release the new game in August, 2016. However, there is still no information which can prove it. That is why the release date may well be postponed. Skate 4 Xbox one and PS4 release date might be simultaneous.
The recent Tony Hawk Pro Skater was a buggy mess. Previous Skate was released quite a while ago, and there was no proper game yet. The thing is sports games (most of them) are not fun at all, more like a glitch with a dumb storyline (or without it at all). We hope the new part of Skate will fix it – genre really need a breath of fresh air.
Skate 4 Updated Gameplay
The game is still going to be set in a city where skateboarding is an art. The graphics is going to be improved a lot along with the physics to offer you better experience. The city itself is likely to be divided into districts again which is quite typical for the Skate series. Each area is supposed to be unique and have its own particularities. The difficulty levels are going to be slightly changed but their idea will stay relatively the same. The new tricks are going to be added into the new game as well to make it more interesting.
We still cannot provide any information about story line. Nevertheless, we can predict that it will be another story about an ambitious skater who is determined to become the champion. Definitely this idea is going to face certain changes but the whole plot is quite predictable.
Skate 4 Platforms and Features
We can expect the game to be release for Xbox and PlayStation. Presumably the latest versions of the consoles will be chosen such as Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Skate 4 PS3 version is unlikely to appear.
First of all, the new game is predicted to come with a new city which will be way too larger than the previous ones. The city is supposed to be more functional allowing you to put all of your skating skills to work. Even though controls were good and comfortable there are still aspects to be improved. That is why many fans rely on a flawless control system. What is more, the physics of Skate 4 video game is going to be improved a lot since there were ridiculous mistakes. However, the idea of creating your own map may be cancelled or improved at least since Skate 3 introduced this feature in a way far from being successful.
The characters of the new Skate are still kept in secret. Perhaps we will know something about them closer to the release date.
Skate 4 is not going to be a new hit in the world of sport games but it is going to improve the series a lot. Since Skate 3 had some obvious problems which should be resolved the developers still have aspects to modify.
