Go behind the scenes with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5’s pros

There’s a stacked roster of professional skaters in the news Tony Hawk title, a roster that might be the most varied ever.

“I wanted a mix of pros that represent the diversity of skating today. Ishod Wair, David Gonzalez, and my son Riley were obvious choices because of their versatility and relevancy to modern skaters. The girls are represented well with two of the best: Leticia Bufoni on street and Lizzie Armanto on transition. Andrew Reynolds (aka The Boss) is still considered one of the best, so he is back representing the OG THPS skaters. Chris Cole and Nyjah Huston are contest dominators and phenomenal talents,” said Tony Hawk. “And Aaron ‘Jaws’ Homoki, is a modern-day stuntman on a skateboard, dropping off the biggest stuff he can find. He was a perfect fit for the over-the-top action of THPS5.”

Not bad at all there. Rosters and being able to play as a bunch of the best pros out there has always been a big part of the Tony Hawk experience, stretching all the way back to the very first game. This new rebirth of the series looks like it’ll be right there with the best entries in terms of who you can play as too.

It’s kind of an interesting year too as far as features, as it’s the first Tony Hawk game in a while, and brings both new and old to the table. You can expect to see all-new objectives, tweaked controls, and the biggest hook- seamless drop in and out online multiplayer.

Lots to like, as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 arrives on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC on September 29th, and on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on the 10th of November.
