When retailer listings for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 first popped up last week, many people noticed that the $39.99 PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions were missing “seamless online multiplayer” when it came to specific game features.
Receiving word from Activision today, Videogamer has confirmed that the PS3/360 versions of Tony Hawk won’t include multiplayer functionality at all.
Activision didn’t give a reason for why online play isn’t included with the game on last-gen consoles.
If you do buy Tony Hawk on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One for $59.99, the online multiplayer allows you to drop in and out of online skate sessions with friends and challengers, complete missions, unlock new content, level up online or offline, go head-to-head in competitive matches, and build and share your skateparks with the community.
A release date for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 is expected to be announced within the next few weeks.
