Skate pre-alpha gameplay

The latest video for the upcoming Skate game shows off some very early gameplay footage. How early? Very. The footage says that what is being shown off is from a pre-pre-pre-alpha stage of development. Also, I guess this video confirms that the game will be simply called Skate (stylized as skate.) instead of Skate 4.

Despite this early stage of development, the team wanted to show everyone what they've been up to since the game was announced. They say that "it's still early, but we really want to get this right and that means we want you to be a part of it."

To that end, EA and developer Full Circle, are seeking playtesters to join them on the next batch of testing.

We told you we’re back, and we’re still working on it - but it’s time for you to see what we’ve been up to. It’s still early, but we want to get this right and that means we want you to be a part of it.

As a skate. insider, you have the chance to play early versions of the game and provide feedback throughout our development journey. We need to scale access to skate. gradually as development progresses to ensure a smooth experience, and that means we can’t guarantee how soon you’ll get to play.

The new gameplay video shows off some skateboarding, obviously, as well as some sick parkour and free running moves.

The upcoming playtests have not yet been dated. You may be waiting for a long time to get in. Even when they start, the rollout will be gradual in order to ensure a smooth experience.
