A brand new Tony Hawk title is in development and it’s not what you might expect. Exclusively developed for smartphones and tablets by UK stubio Big Bit, Tony Hawk’s Shred Session will see players swiping the screens of their respective Apple and Android devices with a single finger to perform trick combos. Even with the simple and intuitive touchscreen controls, Tony Hawk’s Shred Session gives longtime fans the depth and complexity they expect in a Tony Hawk game.
From the Santa Monica boardwalk to the twisted streets of London, every locale in the game has been reimagines 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 tackle classic Tony Hawk game objectives, or compete head-to-head against friends’ top scores.
Players will be able to choose one of six real-life modern day pros (Chris Cole, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Lizzie Armanto, David Gonzalez, Riley Hawk, and the legendary Tony Hawk himself), each with 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 reach higher scores.
Tony Hawk’s Shred Session is expected to release sometime this summer on select Apple and Android devices.For more info on Tony Hawk’s Shred Session for select Apple and Android mobile devices, follow the game on Facebook at www.facebook.com/THShredSession or on Instagram at @THShredSession.
