If you love skating, you’ll be glad to hear that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is now available for digital pre-order on Xbox One for US$59.99 before its September 29th release date.
There’s no actual story to the game but it does allow you to build your own skate parks and then throw your avatar around it with your friends. If you get tired of that, you can have a skate session on the “most twisted designs” created by the community. Just like the real sport, this game is all about socializing and showing off your sick moves. The trailer is included below for your viewing pleasure.
The beauty of digitally pre-ordering this game, apart from not having to go to a physical store, is it allows you to pre install the game from Xbox Live ahead of its release. Then when launch day arrives, (12:01 am EST to be exact), you can play the game without having to wait for it to download.
Many games are giving gamers a digital pre-release option such as Halo 5 Guardians and Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Golf. When Xbox One launched many people were upset about the prospect of “ditching the disc” with digital games but it’s good to see it slowly becoming the norm and gamers embracing it.Microsoft, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, Video Games, Xbox One, Xbox One Games
