Easy Day Studios has announced community created content will be available when Skater XL launches on July 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Three new maps created by Skater XL modding community members ‘Streets’, ‘Pactole’ and ‘Theo’ will be featured, as the first modding content available for all platforms.
Each map has been given visual enhancements by Easy Day’s art team in collaboration with the map creator. Check out the details of each map below.
- ‘Grant Skate Park’ by Theo
Grant Skate Park, created by modder turned Easy Day Studios team member Theo, is one of Chicago’s premier public skateparks. The three-acre waterfront park has a variety of terrain, including street and transition features with a focus on overall flow. Revealed here for the first time, Theo’s version of this real-life skate park holds true to its layout and design, while small tweaks have been added to optimize gameplay.
- ‘Streets’ by Jean Olive
‘Streets’ by prolific map creator Jean Olive is a mash up of street spots inspired by some of the best terrain in the skateboarding world. ‘Streets’ encompass several city blocks of skateable territory, from San Francisco-esque hills, to the unique skateable architecture of Spain. Players will recognize skate spots from Los Angeles and New York, as well as Jean Olive’s own creative designs.
- ‘Hűdland Training Facility’ by Pactole
An original creation by Pactole, ‘Hűdland’ is every skater’s dream private skatepark. Packed full of street and transition features, Hűdland is the perfect indoor place to hone your skills before taking them to the streets. Features include flatbars, stairs, hips, handrails, quarterpipes and more. The warehouse setting and overhead skylights give the map a unique look and feel, while the overall flow of the park will keep players perfecting lines for hours.
In further support of the modding community, PC players can now find Skater XL’s extensive catalog of community created mods at Mod.io. The new platform will allow mod creators to easily manage uploaded Skater XL mod content, and gives players quick and organized access when searching and downloading all of the best new Skater XL community content.
