SKATE 3 Rolling Into Shops Now, You’re Invited to EA’s Launch Party

15 0

PlayStation Skaters,

The Skate franchise is back and rolling into some sick new territory with the release of SKATE 3 for the PS3. There’s tons of new stuff for Skate fans to get stoked on – a whole new city to skate, innovative new team and co-op gameplay, new difficulty modes that enable you to skate exactly how you want, and for the first time in Skate, a Create A Park feature that will change the way the game is played. If you’re new to the world of Skate, don’t sweat it because we’ve added Skate.School, a fun place to session where you can learn the ins and outs of skating as taught by Coach Frank – this weirdly hilarious and oxymoronic “skateboarding coach” played by legendary pro skater and actor, Jason Lee.

SKATE 3

Your mission in SKATE 3 is to start a skateboard company and sell boards. Sell enough boards and you’ll unlock four huge skateparks and plazas that are also “create a parks” with all sorts of varied and super fun terrain to play with. The dev team is especially proud of Skate 3’s commitment to blurring the lines between Online and “single player.” We’ve basically taken the approach that we want to reward all skaters, whatever their style of play or even creative bent.

SKATE 3 SKATE 3

Are you the competitive type? Take your game online and battle it out in ranked matches and races. You on a team that kills it? Show it by challenging other teams in contests or the new Domination, 1-Up, or Own The Lot modes. Like abusing your body for poops and giggles? Play the revamped Thrasher Hall of Meat Mode. Or, share your creative side by using the Graphics Creator or Skate.park features to upload your work. And, here’s the beauty of SKATE 3… you get credit for your play and “work” in the form of board sales that drive your progression. No more wasted effort for a pat on the back on the message boards or in a blog. In SKATE 3, if you kill it skating, or people are downloading and digging your “art”, you’ll get rewarded. And, that gets us hyped because we are proud of what our community creates, now we get to give them something back.

Check out this hot, new trailer for more SKATE 3 goodness:

Well, that’s it for now…the game is hitting shelves now and I’m hitting the road to Los Angeles to take part in what promises to be a pretty cool launch event at Venice Beach Skatepark. We’ve got a bunch of Skate’s pros, some kiosks to play the game, lots of product to heap on fans, and a bunch of meat to chew on. Things get started at 4 PM tomorrow, Wednesday, May 12, but I’d get there early to get some lines in before the heavies show up. See below for more details. See you there…

…and keep rolling.

  • Can’t wait to get my copy and skate with some friends.

  • Play skate 3 and free steak and you get to meet pros thats sweet.

  • This game owns the skating genre.

  • I wasn’t really paying attention to this entry in the series, but then I got my hands on the game early thanks to EA Canada…It’s great! Especially on the PS3, the framerate is great and there are a ton of new features. This is the skateboarding game to beat!

  • I’m gonna pick up Skate 3 this afternoon but I am also picking up a Sony Exclusive game called 3D Dot Game Heroes. Sony… hello.. why isn’t the launch of a system exclusive on your blog???? Show this game some love too!!!

  • The demo left much to be desired, you guys botched up the vert mechanics…

  • @6- Its so garbage… I was so excited counting down the minutes till i could go get 3D Dot Game Heroes, and then i finally get there and they’re like “Yeah, sorry, it comes out tomorrow.” >.< I phoned the other EB Games and they said the same thing. lol it doesnt even make sense since tomorrow's Wednesday. -.- ugh. lol…

    Hope you're enjoying it though…

  • Are they packaging an ‘online’ code with this game too? So that it’s useless when it’s sold as a used game? EA you have lost my interest.

  • EA can rot in hell with Peter Moore and his “Online Pass.” I’ll never buy an EA game (not including Battlefield series…unless BF adds this ‘feature’) again.

    Skate is a ground breaking,skate boarding video game.. Part 1 is a classic, Part 2 is wicked, & Part 3 will be legendary.. a 9 out of 10…. This is artform-fazeone for THE FAZEONES LOUNGE

  • EA you really thought people with multiple consoles and accounts should each have to pay $15 for the BC2 VIP content? I bought BC2 under the assumption that the DLC would work across all of my accounts and both of my family’s PS3’s.

    I was wrong and I’m left with 2 brothers who can’t access the DLC unless they pay $15 each on their individual account. How is this fair? Paying $60+ tax on top of that another $30+ tax? No wonder your company is losing money year by year. It’s because of piss poor respect for your customers by trying to nickle and dime us any chance you get.

    Let’s look at today’s news around the web shall we? “EA posts $677 million loss in FY2010 alongside downed revenues.” says Joystiq.com. Yup you guys have the winning formula.

    I’ll never buy another EA game until you get rid of this “Project Ten Dollar” it’s nothing bad a sad attempt to screw over gamers and get more money in your deflated pockets.

  • Pretty good EA game but wont be getting it with all the good games coming out like Red Dead Redemption/ ect..

  • Solid-Snake-Eyes

    I bought Skate 1 & 2 & DLC, taking a pass on 3 due to the demo being unimpressive and some lackluster reviews & impressions.

  • Screw EA, <– Tony Hawk Fan Dayone
