New news, new thread.

Putting to rest months of cryptic tweets from Tony Hawk, Activision and developer Robomodo have officially announced Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 – a return to the classic gameplay of the series' heyday.

The game is slated to come out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later in the year, with PS3 and Xbox 360 versions following shortly thereafter.

As the name indicates, Pro Skater 5 is a call back to the old-school lineage of the first four titles – back when the franchise was in its prime. The game weds the series' finely tuned gameplay with new additions such as power-ups and the ability to shoot projectiles for specific missions.

Eh. Stopped caring about these a while ago. Not so nostalgic for them to care now, either.

God damn, why projectiles and all that other power-up shit? That's definitely not something to be highlighted when announcing a new mainline THPS game.

Cross Gen

From the developer of such illustrious and well-loved games as Tony Hawk Ride, Tony Hawk Shred, and Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD.

Lower those expectations, friends.

I can't *believe* these lazy developers keep making file sizes so damn large. Btw, how does technology work?

Shoot projectiles?! lol

Also, screens are super low res - but the graphics look pretty dang rough.

Sounds great. Looks like old style, and really want to know about the online co-op. But I love me some old school Tony Hawk.

I was REALLY hoping Robomodo weren't doing this. The screenshots look like a 360 game to boot. Ah well.

Was ready to be hyped about THPS again but cross-gen and power-ups/projectiles has killed it.

I smell cancelation. Just like what happened to last gen versions of Mad Max and Dying Light.

Ability to shoot projectiles

That's a main feature worth pointing out for this game to be excited about? o_O

No Wii U or PC, huh? Bit odd, especially since the Guitar Hero reboot was on everything, but cross gen isn't surprising otherwise. Could be fun, but not sure about all that power up stuff.

Before people decide to pile on Robomodo before hearing impressions, I'd like to remind you all what a shitshow working for Activision on a shoestring budget is supposed to be.

Looks pretty meh.
And lol at no WiiU (I know I know), when they're releasing it on PS3/360. I thought crossgen was over dammit.
