They feel Activision used Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 to extract some more money from those who loved the first few installments in the series.
Though we’re yet to get Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 in our hands, there’s enough evidence out there to suggest our experience isn’t going to be so great. The size of the patch was also learned to be a disappointing one as it comes in 7.7GB, larger than the game itself which is a 4.6GB download. The most notable problems in the game are the glitches and the physics bugs. Eurogamer did gamers a favor by creating a compilation video featuring the glitches caught in under 60 minutes of gameplay. However, the publisher did not share a changelog or provide a timetable for the patch.
“Over on Twitter, developer Robomodo said a patch is development and “[fellow developer Disruptive Games] and us are reading all feedback.
Activision did not issue any further details on a timeline for improvements, or what changes it is planning to make.
Activision Publishing, Inc. have issued a public statement regarding the launch of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, and promises to “continue to improve the gameplay experience”.
Activision has promised to release two new stages and five bonus skaters for free in future updates for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5.
