Easy Day Studios has launched their Skater XL free skate multiplayer open beta on Steam, with plans to release on Xbox and PlayStation soon.
The early open beta currently has the following features to stress test the systems and servers. As feedback from the community is gathered, the features will be improved on.
- Skate with up to 10 people online – Join a random room or start your own private one and invite your friends to join using a passcode
- Replays – Replay and save your group party lines, with the same replay editor functionality available in single player mode
To opt into the open beta, follow these steps.
- Right click ‘Skater XL’ and open Properties
- Select the ‘beta – Open Beta’ branch
Steam should start downloading this version of the game. Once it has finished, you will be able to try the update. The game name in your library should now show “Skater XL [beta]”.
If you’d like to switch back to the regular commercial release branch of the game in future simply come back to this screen and select “NONE – opt out of all betas” in the drop down.
