A lot of us grew up with Tony Hawk Pro Skater, but as the series gained popularity it seemed to drift away from what we enjoyed about the game. Announced by Game Informer, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 will be coming to current gen consoles later this year. The last title to be released in the series was Tony Hawk Proving Grounds in 2007 and the series also saw an HD release of Tony Hawk in 2012.

For fans of the series, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 promises to bring back classic mechanics and traditional Tony Hawk missions with the addition of special power-ups. Players will be able to play single player or online with friends. There is also a create a park mode where players will be able to share user created levels with the world.

Skaters that are announced to appear in Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 are Tony Hawk, Nyjah Huston, Aaron Homoki, Ishod Wair, Riley Hawk, Lizzie Armanto, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Leticia Bufoni, and Andrew Reynolds. Andrew Reynolds sadly being the only skater I remember from the older titles.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is coming later this for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release shortly after. Are you excited about this?

    I love Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. And skateboarding games in general.

    It’s one of the few very Western game genres and series I’m a really huge fan of.
    I was disappointed by the Tony Hawk’s HD thing. But I’ll be optimistic for this. I hope it comes to Steam.

    Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is a sports game series that most gamers who don’t like sports games have gotten behind and know. Because it’s such a good game and such a good game series. And is such a legend in video gaming, that instead of bringing skateboarding fans to the game, like most sports games do. Games like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 made millions of people interested in skateboarding.

    This legacy deserves to be revived. I hope it comes to lots of platforms like Steam. Games like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 came to the PC and was definitely the best version of the game in my opinion. But soon after, they started going console exclusive. I hope that doesn’t keep up.

    NeoGAF has generally negative initial feelings about this title. Their most common points:
    – Developed by Robomondo (the studio behind the three most recent Tony Hawk games that have mixed reception and contributed to the series’ decline in quality)
    – Inconsistencies in the character model work seen in the screenshots
    – Those power-ups featuring projectiles
    A reveal trailer is on the way.
