Activision continues its successful partnership with skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, this time in the mobile space. Tony Hawk’s Shred Session, a brand new title developed natively for Android smartphones and tablets by UK studio Big Bit, is coming this summer.
“I‘m stoked that Activision shares my vision for an original skateboarding game on mobile,” said Tony Hawk. “It’s exciting to evolve with new technologies, and Shred Session is a whole new direction.” From the Santa Monica boardwalk to the twisted streets of London, every locale in the game has been reimagined as a skater’s dream. There are two modes in Tony Hawk’s Shred Session: Survival, where players pull off continuous tricks and combos as long as they can; and Shred Sessions, where players rip through levels to complete classic Tony Hawk game objectives, or compete head-to-head against friends’ top scores.
Real world skateboarding detail has not been overlooked, as players will be able to choose to skate as one of six modern day pros, including Chris Cole, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Lizzie Armanto, David Gonzalez, Riley Hawk, and of course Tony Hawk himself. Each pro has their own signature moves. Each rider can be outfitted with real skate brand apparel, and decks can be customized with signature designs that include bonuses to help reach even higher scores.
