We waited a long time as gamers to define our own style, creativity, and tricks in skateboarding video games. That is when we received “Skater XL.” The following platforms were on “Skater XL” ever since July 28, 2020: “PS4 (PlayStation 4),” “Xbox One,” and “Steam.” Finally, “Skater XL” is arriving on “Nintendo Switch” in 2021. There is no official date for the “Nintendo Switch” platform, but it is announce for this year. 

Skater XL - Official Gameplay Trailer

Gameplay:

With over 60 real skate spots (connected with schools ‘like James Lick Middle school, Wallenberg High School, and Point Loma High School,’ plazas, buildings, pools, corridors, and car parks), the iconic locations of California are where many legends before you left their mark and now, it is your chance to leave one. In “Skater XL,” you can create your own tricks, which is an option we all probably feel like should be in every skateboarding game. Have full control of your board through the convenience of the thumbstick while you are on the ground and in mid-air. 

Your player has the option of wearing clothes with real brands. Look cool while perfecting your stunts. There are over hundreds of combos for the tricks you perform. “Easy Day Studios” is allowing you to play as skating icons like Evan Smith, Tiago Lemos, and Tom Asta or Brandon Westgate, on your way to being a professional. Just like any rookie kickflipping and ollying their way around various locations, you will make mistakes along the way, but after you master the board, you achieve what you was looking for. 

There is a thriving community with over 100,000 member in “Discord” (who create online zines, fake skate brands, video parts, and hundreds of mods). You are in an open-environment where you can push yourself to great limits with technical skills or free form skate. Join the digital skateboarding subculture and that is where you can share your creativity.
