Unlike the Skate and Tony Hawk series, Shaun White Skateboarding's gameplay mixes striking visuals with a half-arcade/half-simulation skateboarding style. The latest trailer emphasizes the latter half of that style, gearing up players for the game's release on October 24 and teaching us once more how to pull off the notorious ollie.
Shaun White Skateboarding is a skateboard game created with the input of board sport superstar Shaun White in which players do much more than skate. They literally transform the gameworld and shape their path through it. Set across multiple districts, the game utilizes unique gameplay mechanics and loads of authentic tricks that when correctly performed, bring color, life and manifestations of a shredder's attitude to a perpetually gray and repressed world. Features include cooperative or adversarial modes, more than 80 recognized tricks and more.
