In addition to playable skaters like Tony Hawk. Nyjah Houston, Chris Cole, and more, the ability to customize your own character is in THPS5.
Tony Hawk talked about the new game:
Skateboarding has always been about the freedom of ripping with your friends, and creating a game that captures that feeling has been a vision of mine since the Pro Skater series began over 15 years ago. I’m beyond excited to see that dream finally come true with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, which takes the old-school attitude of the original games online in a big way.
While it’s still early and subject to change, Amazon’s listing for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 puts the PS4/One versions at $59.99 and the PS3/360 at $39.99. Amazon also says there are over 80 unique missions across eight environments to complete.
