Just the other week we were wondering how none of the Tony Hawk games made it on the list of inductees for the first ever Video Game Hall of Fame this year, but we’re over that now because Tony Hawk and Activision have just announced Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One later this year — yes!
It looks as though the game will be everything people loved about the old Tony Hawk games, and then some. There’ll be additions such as power-ups and the ability to shoot projectiles for specific missions. There’ll also be online co-op and competitive play and you’ll be able to share your created skate parks with the rest of the world.
Confirmed skaters so far include Tony Hawk (duh), Nyjah Huston, Aaron Homoki, Ishod Wair, Riley Hawk, Lizzie Armanto, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Leticia Bufoni, and Andrew Reynolds.
Count us in. In the meantime check out some of the sreenshots that have been released thus far:
