Latest - EA Skate 4 trailer revealed
While it's looking like the title might be simply dubbed "skate.", we've finally got an early teaser trailer to watch!
Unfortunately, there's no gameplay to be seen just yet, but the developers seemed well aware of expectations and leaned into the teaser aspect here.
We did gets bits and pieces, including mention of it being open-world and some chat about character customization, but otherwise all we really know is that there's more to come down the line.
EA Skate 4 was announced last year at EA Play Live
Last year at EA Play Live 2020, it was finally announced years after the release of EA Skate 3 that a sequel is actually in the works.
Actual details about what is being frequently referred to as "the next evolution of Skate" have been few and far between, but we know that recently founded EA development studio Full Circle is in charge.
Many fans were hoping we'd get the next big update for EA Skate 4 at EA Play Live, but the latest update from developers means that's not the plan.
EA Skate 4 Reveal Countdown: News coming before EA Play Live 2021
Any fans hoping for EA Skate 4 news at EA Play Live 2021 may be disappointed, but Full Circle has also revealed that something is arriving today.
The statement above was released yesterday, and we're hoping to get an early teaser or first look at EA Skate 4 today.
Exactly what will be revealed isn't clear, but it's likely to be an attempt by EA Skate 4 to put their competitors on notice.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 is revitalizing skateboarding games
While their primary competition is clear, it's perhaps thanks to that very competition that EA Skate 4 has so much excitement this early in development.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 are still the gold standard of skateboarding games, which is why it's no surprise that the remastered versions of those classics has seen such success.
After initially launching on PC, PS4, and Xbox One back in September of 2020, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 later jumped to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and most recently Nintendo Switch.
The remaster has seen both commercial and critical success since being released, and each additional platform continues to extend the reach of what many consider to be two of the greatest video games of all time.
EA Skate 4 will have big shoes to fill and high expectations, but it's the success of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 that is helping build anticipation.
