Skate 4’s Map From The Closed Beta Test Allegedly Leaks Online

The Skate series is on its way for revival.

Story Highlights

  • The Skate franchise was once considered one of the most fun sets of extreme sports video games around, but they’re no longer around in current-gen fashion anymore. The last Skate game, Skate 3, traces its release back to 2010, garnering positive reviews from all around. 
  • It’s been 13 years up until now and no new Skate game has been launched. EA, however, has made it official that a new Skate game is currently in development, but no concrete release date has been given for the title.
  • According to a new leak, though, Skate 4’s in-game map has been leaked online, showcasing some parts of the environment. No other information is available for the fourth title in the franchise. 

The Skate series has long been dormant, and to the disappointment of fans, it’s been 13 years since a new game in the franchise has been dropped. A sliver of hope popped up in 2020, though, when EA formally announced that a new Skate game, basically the fourth rendition of the IP, is under the brewer. From then until now, word has been pretty much silent on Skate 4, until today. 

Thanks to u/No_Kaleidoscope_9471, an anonymously uploaded Streamable link was spotted online, comprising a part of Skate 4’s in-game map. As per reports, it’s been claimed that the leak comes from the game’s Closed Beta Test (CBT), which is ongoing at the moment. As a matter of fact, playtesting for the title has been going on for a long while at this point, where EA is trying to polish its otherwise glorious IP. 

 

Gathering everything that we know so far of Skate 4, EA, the publisher behind the forthcoming Skate, is trying to put fans first for this one. As per Benneton Play, a feedback form is required to be filled out by players once they’re done with the playtest. That helps the developer—Full Circle—understand what fans are looking for in a new Skate game, so they can try to deliver upon expectations. 

For those not in the know, Skate 4, or simply Skate, as EA likes to refer to it for the time being, is going to be a free-to-play game. However, as you may know, with all of those arrives a certain standard of microtransactions, and as per Every Skate, the new Skate will feature seasons and Season Passes to offer enticing rewards and other in-game items to players all the while pushing out more content.

Moreover, the title still utilizes the “Flick-it” style of controls, which is the same trick system that was incorporated in previous Skate games. However, the whole mechanic has seen a massive upgrade as per reports, and EA is trying to refine the title as much as possible before setting it up for release. Let’s just hope from here on out that pay-to-win systems are not prominent in the upcoming Skate.

If you’re excited about the game, consider becoming a Skate insider and signing up for the playtest as well. Head over to the official Skate website and follow the on-screen instructions from there on out to complete the registration process. From what we’ve seen up until now on various forums, EA appears to be getting as many players as it can onto the playtest to receive an equal level of feedback, so your chances of making it in are not slim.
