Shaun White Skateboarding, a game that puts an innovative twist on the action-sports genre, is the latest offering in the award-winning franchise developed in collaboration with dual-sport super-athlete, Shaun White. The most ambitious installment yet, Shaun White Skateboarding brings all the sensations of skateboarding to a wide audience, making skate dreams possible and allowing players to transform a dull, lifeless city into an extraordinary skating utopia.
Players will discover a deserted city, empty except for a few holdouts who are thrilled to have the city to themselves. Through their skating players can transform the dull and gray city into a thriving metropolis by extending handrails into endless grinds, carving alleys into half pipes, morphing streets into ramps and much more. Forgotten plazas will turn into ultimate skating spots, and unlikely areas (like a train station or amusement park) will become skating playgrounds. Shaun White, with the help of our resident DJ, will guide players from the beginning, finding fresh spots to skate and spinning tunes. Shaun White Skateboarding empowers skaters to push the limits of what’s possible.
Transformation – a creativity-driven gameplay innovation: discover incredible skate lines using city structures, stretch and twist handrails to dizzying heights, empty fountains to create bowls, make alleys into epic quarter pipes and so much more. New areas are revealed, better skate lines are created and buildings are transformed. Creativity is rewarded with points, gear and new skating opportunities.
Explore and discover a world full of skateboarding potential: meet up with some old friends from Shaun White Snowboarding to transform skate spots you’ve only dreamed about. Compete in a variety of challenges including race, collect, narrative missions, and many more.
Multiplayer: team up with friends in the ultimate skatepark for exciting split screen action.
Ride like the pros: try your hand at a wide array of tricks hand-picked by Shaun, including his own creation the “Armadillo”, enjoy a unique and fun gameplay experience where you can transform the city while pulling off authentic skate moves. In addition to core tricks, you’ll learn signature moves that defy gravity and push the limits of each character. Each map guarantees a wide variety of new areas to test your skills, opportunities to compete with friends and/or just cruise around in free-ride.
