Session: Skate Sim launches September 22​


Currently in Early Access for Xbox One and PC.


Session: Skate Sim will leave Early Access and launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on September 22, publisher Nacon and developer crea-ture Studios announced.

The skateboarding simulator first launched in Early Access for PC via Steam on September 17, 2019, followed by Game Preview for Xbox One on June 9, 2020.

Here is an overview of the game, via Nacon:

Session invites players to dive into the genuine 1990s skateboarding way of life, when each stretch of pavement and each stairway was a great location for your favorite stunt. The game’s ultra-realistic physics bring the sensations of skateboarding to life, and the studio has even integrated ground-breaking gameplay, a first in a skateboarding game: the “True Stance Stick”, where each foot is independently managed using the two sticks. With a learning curve that is just as demanding as in real life, players have to practice how to control their board and pull off all the different stunts available in the game, from the simplest to the most complicated. The integrated editing tool lets each player immortalize their greatest achievements on video.

From their Steam page:

There seems to have been some trouble in the development as some of the promised features have been cut at least from the launch version.
you can't do any grab/vert tricks? :messenger_tears_of_joy: that's quite a big CUT...

but hey at least it's on their "possible" post launch plans :rolleyes:

I really want to like this, but it just isn't fun to play.

Skater XL was also terrible.

It's crazy, how no game has come close to skate 3 and that is over a decade old.

Jesus. I had really high hopes in the game. Back to skate 3 on RPCS3 it seems.

Inspired by the golden age of street skating – the 1990s – Session: Skate Sim lets you experience true skateboarding and its culture: no scoring system; just you, your spot and your imagination!

Session: Skate Sim is available on Xbox via Game Preview, Steam Early Access, Epic Games Store, and coming to PlayStation at launch on September 22, 2022.

I've put a few hours into Session this week. I am excited for the full release but I worry they saw what SkaterXL got away with for their 1.0 launch and decided to follow suit. Don't get me wrong, it's a solid game. It just needs a hell of a lot of polish to get it to that next level.
