Activision Publishing’s Pro Skater Series Returns After 13 Years With Mix Of Classic Action, Brand New Levels And Exciting Online Play


The Birdman is back with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One expected to release later this year. The game retains the timeless, combo driven energy and tightly designed levels of the Pro Skater games while expanding the experience with seamless online play.

Tony Hawk has stated:

Skateboarding has always been about the freedom of ripping with your friends, and creating a game that captures that feeling has been a vision of mine since the Pro Skater series began over 15 years ago. I’m beyond excited to see that dream finally come true with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, which takes the old-school attitude of the original games online in a big way.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 rekindles the signature style of classic Pro Skater games in a brand new set of levels with the same infamous focus on daring objectives, fine tuned controls and high score tricks including manuals and reverts for endless shredding. New items like power-ups and projectiles change up the core skating experience in a variety of fresh and entertaining ways. Tear up the pavement as one of today’s top pros including Tony Hawk, Nyjah Huston, Riley Hawk, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Ishod Wair, Leticia Bufoni, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Andrew Reynolds, and Lizzie Armanto or customize your own character.

Online multiplayer is where Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is told to take off, letting players drop in and out of online skate sessions with friends and challengers from around the world for the first time. Complete missions, unlock new content and level up online or offline, or go head-to-head on the fly against all takers in competitive matches. Players can also build their own imaginative skate parks to share with the community.

Robomodo and Disruptive Games are developing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game is also coming to Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 soon after the next-gen versions. The exact release dates for the various versions is said to be shared in the upcoming weeks.

It’s About To Get Real As Activision Unveils Guitar Hero Live, Featuring A First Person View And Reactive Crowds


Guitar Hero, the pop culture phenomenon that exploded onto the scene and brought a new way to interact with music is back with true breakthrough innovation that will re-ignite your dreams of becoming a rock star. Activision announced Guitar Hero Live, introducing a brand new generation to Guitar Hero which upon its release became the quickest console franchise in video game history to reach one billion dollars in sales in North America and Europe and was played by over 40 million players. Developed by FreeStyleGames, the studio behind the critically acclaimed DJ Hero and DJ Hero 2, Guitar Hero Live introduces two powerful ways to play including GH Live, a first-person point of view where you are up on stage as the star of the show. A quantum leap forward in immersion and realism, GH Live is a live-action experience that delivers the full emotional roller coaster of being on stage and performing in a real band in front of real crowds who dynamically react in real-time to how well or poorly you play. As the lead guitarist, you play an array of songs that span the changing musical landscape in a variety of venues from the smallest club stage in front of a hundred people to the massive main stage of an outdoor festival in front of a hundred thousand people.

Guitar Hero Live also introduces GHTV, the world’s first playable music video network. GHTV is a 24-hour mode that lets fans play along to a continually updated collection of official music videos across a wide variety of genres from the newest releases to favourite hits. Fans can pick from multiple channels and themed shows discovering new songs as they play and can also choose songs to play on-demand. In GHTV, fans can also play with their friends in the same room and against players from around the world to see who has the highest score on a given song while completing challenges along the way. GHTV is a living breathing platform that serves as an ever-growing source for new music discovery while further bringing the party atmosphere back to the living room. The breakthrough innovations in Guitar Hero Live also extend to mobile. Both GH Live and GHTV are fully playable both on consoles as well as tablets and mobile phones. More exciting details will be announced in the near future.

Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision, has said:

Guitar Hero is a franchise that so many people love. Figuring out how to bring it back with true breakthrough innovation has been years in the making, and a labour of love. Guitar Hero Live lets people rock real crowds with real reactions. Our goal was literally to give people stage fright. And with GHTV, we have created the world’s first live, playable music video network. All of it is playable on consoles, or mobile devices. Guitar Hero is back and better than ever.

Guitar Hero Live enhances the gameplay experience by introducing a modern, redesigned guitar controller, featuring two rows of three buttons that better reflects the way people naturally play. The new format ensures fun for players of all abilities. For beginners, you can feel like a rock star by mastering play with just the bottom three buttons. Medium-level players don’t have to stretch their fingers down the neck of the guitar controller anymore and can instead skillfully play two-row combinations that mimic real chords. Experienced players have a new challenge in creating complex chord-like shapes and finger combinations that will bring new thrills to veterans. This simple innovation makes it easier for beginners to play and harder for veterans to master.

Music variety is at the heart of the game. Guitar Hero Live takes the approach of the modern music festival with rock, folk, EDM, hip-hop, country and pop acts sharing the same stage. The game will feature hundreds of playable songs from a diverse array of artists including The Black Keys, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Gary Clark, Jr., Green Day, Ed Sheeran, The War on Drugs, The Killers, Skrillex, The Rolling Stones, The Lumineers, Carrie Underwood, Pierce the Veil and Blitz Kids, with many more bands to be announced in the coming months.

Bruce Resnikoff, President of Universal Music Enterprises, commented:

We are pleased to support the launch of  Guitar Hero Live, building on one of the most successful music video-game franchises of all time, and providing our artists with a fun and interactive experience for their fans

Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy and Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance are joining Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg and Jamie Jackson, Creative Director and Co-Head of FreeStyleGames, on-stage at the Best Buy Theatre on 14 April to showcase their songs featured in Guitar Hero Live and celebrate the reveal of the game.

Martyn Gibbs, CEO GAME Digital Plc, added:

There are few gaming franchises that have changed the way gamers play in such a dramatic way as Guitar Hero and we are very excited to see the return in such great style with Guitar Hero Live. The GAME store teams can’t wait to invite audiences and participants from first time strummer to rock-God to try out Guitar Hero Live.

Guitar Hero Live will be available Autumn 2015 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, the Wii U and select mobile devices to be announced soon. Starting today, fans can begin preordering their copy of Guitar Hero Live at select retailers worldwide.Watch the debut trailer below:
