Skater XL will open its skateboarding sandbox July 7

Dope Threads

Easy Day Studios has announced that sandbox skateboarding sim Skater XL will leave Early Access on July 7, 2020, bringing its host of famous skaters, locations, and brands to PC and consoles.

Players will be able to step into the scuffed-up shoes of skateboarding icons such as Tiago Lemos, Evan Smith, Brandon Westgate, and Tom Asta. If you fancy taking to the rails as your good self, then you’re in luck, as a full custom character maker will also be included. In terms of gear, Skater XL has signed a deal with a huge range of popular brands, including Dickies, Santa Cruz, New Balance, Etnies, Vans, DC, 411VM, Blind, The Nine Club, and many more.

You can check out some of these Totally Radical looks in the new trailer below.

Skater XL, a community-driven sandbox title, will boast over 60 trick-laden areas just waiting for you to show off your wrist-breaking finesse. With the modding community heavily encouraged to create their own skaters, locations, highlight reels, and tournaments, Skater XL hopes to become an evolving release, one that is made bigger and better by the players themselves.

Skater XL launches July 7 on PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
