Skater XL Video Shows How Real Skaters Were Brought Into the Game
Easy Day Studios released a new video for their skateboarding game, Skater XL, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam on July 28, 2020.
The video highlights how the skater’s likenesses were implemented into the game and the technology used during development. The skaters highlighted in the video are Tom Asta, Tiago Lemos, Evan Smith, and Brandon Westgate, who are each playable pros within the game. Each of the skaters had over 100 DSLR cameras take pictures of them to make this happen.
Skater XL is a skateboarding game aimed to give players direct control of the feet and board at all times, rather than trigger trick animations. During gameplay, players can unlock the creative options needed to create a true skateboarding experience. The game will take players through several California locations based on real places from the West Coast. Players will be able to choose from pro skaters or create their own to skate the streets.
Currently, the developer supports the modding community by allowing them to create their own maps and systems within the game. There are over a thousand maps available, including digital skate ezines, personal video parts, in-game brands, and contests.
