Everything we know about the new Skate game

Are there microtransactions in Skate?

Skate will be a free-to-play title, meaning there is no upfront cost to you to be able to play it. That being said, there will be microtransactions, but they are not supposed to affect gameplay whatsoever. Microtransactions in Skate are merely supposed to be cosmetic and convenience-based. No gameplay content will be locked behind these purchases, and there will be no paid expansions. The game is a live service title that you will be able to play nonstop without putting any money down if you so desire.

Right now, we know that Skate will release on mobile, PC, PlayStation, and Xbox with current and last generation consoles. Nintendo Switch has not been officially confirmed as of this writing, but we expect it to come there eventually.

Gameplay

From what we have seen so far, Skate’s gameplay looks similar to what you know from the past. It’s not quite as arcadey as a Tony Hawk game, but not a one-to-one simulation either. All we have seen as of this writing is a lot of very early looks at the game, so things may change. If that happens, we will update this article.
