New Skate Trailer Reveals Pre-Alpha Gameplay

Console playtests are coming this fall.

We’ve been waiting forever for a new Skate game, and while we still don’t have a release date, we’re finally seeing some progress. EA and Full Circle are rebooting the beloved skateboarding franchise with a free-to-play model, and they just dropped a new trailer at Summer Game Fest.

Let’s talk about the trailer for a bit. It’s pre-pre-alpha gameplay, so don’t expect polished graphics or final features, but man, it’s something. We looked at some raw footage after a hilarious skit about the M-Corp. Various skateboarders were shown pulling off tricks and skating up a building. It’s not much, but it’s a welcome sight for those starved for Skate content. Check it out below:

EA has also confirmed that console playtests are happening this fall. You’ll finally get to try the game out on your consoles. Sign-ups are live on the game’s official website, so don’t miss your chance to get in on the action early.

The wait has been extended, and we’re not quite there yet, but at least we’re moving forward. The Skate reboot is on its way, and it’s looks like it’s worth the wait. Watch for more updates, and get ready to hit those playtests this fall.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. Currently stuck in WoW with high M+ keys, Tarkov, a bit of Gray Zone Warfare, Dota 2, and CS2. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC. If you need anything, feel free to contact me on X!
