The long-anticipated spiritual successor to the Skate series is almost here, and we couldn’t be more excited. The hardworking folks over at Easy Day Studios have announced that their skateboarding passion project, Skater XL, will be available on July 7th, 2020. Skateboarders and the gaming community at large have been waiting for a solid skateboarding title for the last decade.

Along with the release date announcement, Easy Day Studios also announced new customization features for the game. You’ll be able to deck your skater out in apparel and gear from the hottest real-world skate brands to bring a sense of personal style to every player. The brands include Lakai, Venture Trucks, Independent Truck Co, Element Skateboards, Grizzly Griptape, Ricta Wheels, and many more well-known skate brands. The game will also feature real-world professional skateboarders as playable characters. These skaters include Tom Asta, Brandon Westgate, Tiago Lemos, and Evan Smith. Check out the trailer below.
