Ladies and gentlemen, brace yourselves for the most epic skateboarding revelation of the century! The legendary Skate franchise is making a triumphant comeback, and this time it's not just for consoles but also for the glorious realm of PC gaming, including the hallowed grounds of Steam. Oh, the skateboarding gods must be grinning from ear to ear!
In a momentous announcement that reverberated through the digital realms, EA declared that Skate, the aptly named revival of the beloved franchise, will grace the platforms of Steam, alongside its release on EA's own platform and consoles. The news was unleashed upon the world through the modern oracle of social media, X (formerly known as Twitter), accompanied by a tantalizing video clip that left us drooling in anticipation.
Now, to provide a little context, the studio behind this euphoric resurrection, Full Circle, has been teasing us with taste tests of the game via the exclusive EA App. It's like dangling a juicy carrot in front of our eyes, tempting us with glimpses of the skateboarding bliss that awaits. But here's the kicker: there isn't even a Steam store listing for the game at the time of writing. The suspense is killing us!
Full Circle, in their benevolence, has been periodically gracing us with updates on the development of Skate. Back in the glorious days of July 2023, they promised console players more play tests. However, the game is still in its early stages, and we're left wondering when the studio will bless us with a grander beta or alpha test, inviting hoards of eager skateboard enthusiasts to partake in the virtual shredding.
But fret not, my fellow skaters! While we patiently wait for the game's official release, Full Circle has been kind enough to treat us to mesmerizing videos showcasing the jaw-dropping updates and tricks in Skate. Just imagine the exhilaration as you witness skaters defy gravity with flips, twists, and impossible stunts. It's as if the virtual world has become a playground for the gods of skateboarding!
Now, here's the scoop on the release date, or at least as close as we can get to one for now. According to a quarterly earnings report from May 2023, the Skate frenzy is expected to hit our gaming screens sometime after April 2024. Mark that date on your calendars, folks, and prepare to embark on a skateboarding journey like no other.
But wait, there's more! In an unexpected twist that sent shockwaves through the gaming community, EA's tweet on February 1, 2024, unveiled the grand news: Skate will be available on Steam for PC players. Can you imagine the virtual streets of Steam bustling with skateboarders, performing gravity-defying tricks, and leaving trails of pixelated awesomeness in their wake? It's a sight that will surely make even the most stoic of gamers crack a smile.
So, my friends, get ready to dust off your trusty skateboards, limber up those virtual skating muscles, and prepare to be transported to a world where gravity is just a suggestion. The revival of Skate is upon us, and it's not just about consoles anymore. Steam is about to witness a skateboarding revolution, where the streets become our canvas, and our boards become our brushes. Get hyped, my fellow skaters, because the virtual skateboarding madness is about to be unleashed!
