game news Skate 4 – Massive Leaks After Early Test Phases!
The Skate license is about to return soon with the release of the fourth opus. A return eagerly awaited by fans of the trick but still struggling to show itself, at least until now. EA and Full Circle recently opened a testing phase to the public to improve the development of their game, it was not long before the new features of this software were shared on the web.
We are starting to know a little more about the new work of the Skate license. Still scheduled for an unspecified date, Full Circle and EA software recently entered the testing phase for which it was possible to apply. An application that requires the utmost discretion, a principle that has not been respected at all by the players as many details have just been revealed!
So today we are full of information about this new game. The community should be able to expect good things with Skate 4 as the software would run under freezing enginethe engine developed by DICE originally dedicated to Battlefield.
On the game side, Full Circle would abandon difficulty levels in favor of different styles of play (classic, simplified, and experienced). Many familiar tricks from the license would return, as well as new opportunities to display the full extent of his talent. The first leaks insist on the aspect “faster” than before, but apart from this question of speed, reviews speak of gameplay that remains realistic and true to the original experience.
Finally, we also know the name of the map of this test, soberly titled “Fun City”. This map would be only a part of the final map and would contain both several new locations as well as locations from previous games. At the moment, many dots are still untextured, proof that the game still needs to spend a bit of time in development. The map of the test phases has also been leaked on the web.
Emphasis on community experience.
What stands out the most from this first test session is the community aspect of this new game. Full Circle would like to emphasize sharing and group sessions, with servers capable of at least 60 players. The various performances of the riders would be shown in real time and giant screens would continuously broadcast the craziest tricks performed by the community. In fact, each player will be able to dedicate himself to the production of videos for which it will be possible to vote for them to be shared on the different servers.
In order to assert your style with other skaters, customization should return with a large number of cosmetics available for your avatar. Licensed clothing will return. ”’To unlock the different cosmetics, you will have to pass several levels. These levels will also unlock customization items for your personal space.
Because yes, another novelty is the presence of a kind of personal skate park, fully customizable that will allow players to train alone, or with others. Upgrades and various skate park builds will be scattered across the map through schematics that can be unlocked and found.
And if not, what about the release date? For now, nothing new on this topic, but the leaks may provide the first elements of an answer. Players have found cosmetics dedicated to Halloween. Therefore, we are thinking of a release for this period, but we bet more on the year 2023 in view of the supposed state of progress of the game.
