There is great expectation for the new installment of the Electronic Arts franchise and it is not for less. skate. has revealed a multitude of details in a new advance that first makes it clear to us that his name will not be Skate 4. To understand it, creative director Cuz Parry explains the reasons behind the decision:
“It’s not Skate 4. And here’s why: It’s not a sequel. It’s not a remake. It’s not a reboot, it’s not a prequel, it’s nothing like that. It’s not a remake or a remaster, anything that can be This is it, this is skateboarding. We’re in it for the long haul. (…) There won’t be a Skate from 5 to 10. We won’t get them out all the time. We’re going to do this. We’re going to listen to what you say throughout of time, and put the features you want. (…) It’s NOT Skate 4. Just skate. Period. That’s why we put a little point at the end”
Once it has become abundantly clear, we have been able to know that the work will be completely free and will not leave any community behind. It will reach the old generation, the current one and PC, beyond the fact that a version for mobile devices is being prepared. The systems in which it will be released have not been specified, but it will feature cross-play and cross-progression. Dan McCullo, CEO of Full Circle, explains the developer’s vision:
“We want people to get as much value as possible from their gaming experience and to be able to play on their favorite platforms the way they love. We’re at a very early stage, but we want the controls and everything else to work well. And When that’s done, we’ll put it all together and you can play on whatever platform you want with your friends, and that’s going to be awesome.”
On the other hand, Isabelle Mocquard, head of product management for the studio, has indicated that “we have the ambition to continue supporting skate. during years. (…) Our vision was not that of a title that is played and “overcome”, but of something that you can return to regularly and discover new things”. Of course, we will have microtransactionsbut we can forget about pay to win formulas, loot boxes or blocked areas unless we scratch our pockets.
“We were inspired by games like Apex Legends, or other popular titles that are free to play, where spending money is totally optional, and it’s all about cosmetics and comfort. With this model, we’ll be able to keep the community together among gamers who decide to spend and those who don’t”
When will it arrive skate.? Difficult to know, since for Cuz the idea of the company is that “we are not going to put any unrealistic expectations in terms of the launch date. It will be when it is ready.” while we can sign up for future tests of the workat the same time that we have known succulent details of what awaits us.
