Tony Hawk Project 8 video

Tony Hawk Project 8 video

Activision released this very interesting video of Tony Hawk Project 8 showcasing the Trick system. This is a very nice addition to the already quite complete game system of the Tony Hawk series.

Not that I care for this game but will that Matrix thing kick-in EVERYTIME you are on the air?

That would slow things down a bit won't it? And it made me sick just watching this trailer.

Another Tony Hawk's Title to avoid...

Anyone besides me notice that they have remakes of old levels????

First 2 levels of THPS3 the steal works and the snow level and first level of THPS4.

Can't wait to get this game.

Looks excellent, but a bit too much bloom for my taste.... again...

Awesome, truely awesome. I always wanted to be able to do stuff like that but never thought about how it could be implemented. I wonder if this will be the way you have to learn the tricks, eg. start with just the basics and every advanced keycombo trick you have to unlock by doing it the custom way first.

nice! i really like the normal maps. i didnt know the trick system was so deep! this is awesome. nice ragdoll too.

p.s. yeah i really hope they remake more levels from the first and second one. namely, the first warehouse level! oh god please.

Yeah, this game looks really fucking good. I cant wait to get back into the tony hawk games. They werent the same after TH4. The gameplay and graphics in this look really sharp.

I'm wondering though, will activision be a company that keeps on reusing this engine for this generation, or will they make improvments as time goes by?

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (12 Hours ago)
