Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is out now

Activision is celebrating the fact that Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is out now with the release on the brand new launch trailer.

"Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 balances an authentic skatepark experience with the franchise’s over-the-top arcade action and style, paying tribute to the classic games with timeless gameplay modes while introducing exciting new ways to play," says Activision. "Players will ollie, grind, kickflip and noseslide with tried-and-true Pro Skater controls through the game’s 100+ missions, stringing together astronomical combos and unlocking new content. With the introduction of 20-person online multiplayer, skaters can drop-in on their friends’ sessions for head-to-head competition or take on cooperative missions."

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 launches eight brand-new levels, while two additional stages and five bonus skaters are coming in future updates for free. Players can also build their own skateparks from an arsenal of more than 250 ramps, rails, objects and more.

Unfortunately the game hasn't exactly been well received by critics at this time due to quite a few bugs, although Activision promises that any issues will improve.

Speaking to Shacknews, the publisher said, "We aware of the issues that players have experienced following the launch of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 and are working with the developer to address these so that we can continue to improve the gameplay experience for all of the Tony Hawk fans who have known and loved this franchise for more than 16 years".

What do you think of the game? Have you ordered it?

This game is terrible! supposedly a rush job because the license is due to expire very soon so they got 1 more out and didn't care about the quality - it is basically just u and a load of stranges (you can't turn off because they still show up - other players like a mmo) in a skate park accepting missions to spend 2-4 mins trying to pass the challenge them moving to the next. least in the first game you were given a timer to try and do as many things as posisble - this one it is all separate mission, terrible. The controls and graphics are horrible as well. I can see this winning a lot of peoples worst game of 2015 awards - just look on youtube, i'm guessing the youtubers will be taking the piss out of this very soon as it is click bait....

I can only say from what I've seen on Twitter and YouTube but this games looks so broken! From the moment they changed the art work it seemed rushed. Personally haven't been a fan of TH games since.....I can't even remember. SKATE 3 was the last skateboarding game I played that really worked well for me. Think the genre, and dare I say it, the sport has had its heyday.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
