Game News Skateboarding: is the next generation guaranteed? Session launches and let it be known
Between the absence of Tony Hawk (despite a remake two years ago) and the withdrawal of Skate, skateboard fans are in need: fortunately, Session is there to ensure the heritage of the different franchises. And finally, it comes out on the market.
Waiting for Skate 4
The first time we heard about Session: Skate Sim was years ago when it launched its early access on PC: the game was already talked about a lot since it admitted to being the worthy successor to the once unbeatable franchises, namely Skate from Electronic Arts (and even earlier, a certain Tony Hawk’s). Is the promise kept?
To respond to the questionplayers will finally be able to fall back on the title which, that’s it, has just launched on Windows and home consoles. This is a big step for developers who have been shaping their baby for a long time. Besides, a beautiful brand new trailer has just arrived on the webwhich you can find at the beginning of the article.
Feet on the floor
If Session: Skate Sim is also talked about, it’s for its authenticity. Already because his studio wants to be “by skaters for skaters” (which is very meaningful, in itself) but also because he tries rather new concepts. Starting with the gameplay for example, which is based on a specific concept: each stick of the controller corresponds to a foot, which must be manipulated to perform tricks. The task is not easy, but worth experimenting with.
We can also talk an ultra-close camera approaching the fisheye effect and a large open world to explore, as well as cross-platform output : if Session catches your eye, know that it is now available on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
