How to register for the Skate 4 playtest

To register for a chance to play the Skate 4 playtest, you’ll first need to register an EA account on the publisher’s official website. Then, you can register as a playtester via the sign-up page. Finally, update your location preferences on your account so that EA knows where you are and can send you the right type of playtesting access.

The Skate 4 playtest is only available on PC at the time of writing. While future playtests may be extended to other platforms, you can only sign up for a chance to play the PC version right now. It’s likely that more platforms will see a playtest in the future though because the Skate series has always been a multiplatform series.
