It’s been a while since a skateboarding game has been available for all major platforms, and Skater XL is stepping it up with its physics-based gameplay and analog sticks acting like the skater’s feet. Instead of having the skater perform captured skating animation, the tricks and moves here will rely on the physics of the actual skateboard and the movement of the skater’s feet.

Playable characters include Tiago Lemos, Evan Smith, Tom Asta and Brandon Westgate. As a skater, you’ll have complete freedom to create, combine and style your moves as you skate in Downtown LA and other iconic locations in the Los Angeles area. There are plenty of skating spots including plazas, schools, pools, buildings, car parks and corridors.

The modding community is also big, and players will have access to more maps and player-created content like digital skate zones

Skater XL will be available digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on July 7, 2020. Brick and mortar stores will carry physical copies for the PS4 and Xbox One.
