Skate 2 Announced!!

Postby Koenigsegg_Rox » 21 May 2008, 11:41

Good news for all the people who enjoyed the first skate game (absolutely kick@$$) by EA Black Box (One of the more excellent games by EA lol).

Skate 2 has been released with a little bit of plot revealed. This is from the IGN preview:

Recently, EA announced it was working on Skate 2 for PS3 and Xbox 360. And that's about all EA was willing to say about the sequel. However, the official Skate website has several teaser videos. None show gameplay, but two of the videos provide hints on the setup for Skate 2.

According to the videos, five years have passed and San Vanelona is very different place. Shortly after you won Skater of the Year, your character disappeared. No one knows what happened to him, but the skaters of San Vanelona hope he'll come back. And they need you. In the past five years, the cops have cracked down on skaters. Caps were put on rails to make it almost impossible to grind and "No Skating" signs are everywhere.

San Vanelona was once a paradise for skaters. Now it's their worst nightmare.

That's all we know about Skate 2 so far. No gameplay details have been provided, though it appears things won't be so easy in the sequel.

This is different to NFS you do realise? Most likely not as popular because it's only on PS3 and X360, but it is different.

It's not different at all.

EA game 1 + reasonable sales success = EA game 2

Any game 1 + Reasonable success= sequel... Unless they cut off the story early...

But anyway, can't wait for skate 2, much better than late NFS, and one of EA's finest. Certainly shows up TH.
