As part of the All Digital E3 Replacement Events, this week’s Future Games Show gave us new gameplay details on Skater XL. As part of a gameplay video, the developers showed off a new way to play skating games. Twin stick controls are used to control the player’s feet. Instead of using buttons for moves and tricks, the game lets the physics dictate the tricks. The developers also announced that Skater XL will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on July 28th. It is currently in Early Access on Steam. There are more details from the Skater XL team below.
