Last Thursday, June 30th, Electronic Arts posted a registration page for a playtest of their upcoming Skate 4, which could be officially unveiled in July. Fans were in a good mood when this was posted and everyone started wondering what the game is like. One of the playtesters recently leaked a lot of information about Skate 4 and an image.
Skate 4 runs on the Frostbite engine. The playtest is not textured yet, as shown in the previous leak and trailer. The playtest takes place on a map called “Jolly City” and this map seems to be a small part of a larger map. In addition, there are some parts of the old map on the Skate 4 map, such as the Community Center from Skate 1.
Skate 4 is supposed to have three types of control systems: classic, modernized and for experienced players. There are also two camera options, high and low, which you can switch instantly with the push of a button.
The tester confirmed that character customization will be available in Skate 4. The game is still in development and there are only a few customization options such as different shirts and caps. The characters will also be able to speak, but so far in the playtest they only applaud.
Finally, the game has a level system that allows players to level up to 100. In addition, players will have their own parks where they can see their stats or their first skateboard on TV. On top of that, the game also has materials and blueprints, which means that crafting will also be part of Skate 4. That said, the information can be incorrect and misleading, so you should take it with a lot of skepticism.
