Skate 3 is an upcoming skateboarding title in the Skate series of video games, developed by EA Black Box, published by Electronic Arts and due for release in May 2010[1].


Two new game modes have been added, one to simplify the trick system and one to make it harder, also known as Hardcore Mode. Hardcore Mode restricts tricks to be performed at a lower height to make things such as flip-tricks and getting onto ledges harder; it has been said that you can bail on flat if you don't flick a trick hard enough. Grinds are also much harder as there isn't as much 'suction' into ledges and rails. It also takes five pushes to get to top speed on flat as opposed to the three in the last two skate games.

Create-a-park is also a big feature in Skate 3. This allows gamers to build skateparks similar to the Tony Hawk games. According to the skate website, players can build a variety of set-ups such as mega ramps and plazas.

There will be three new game modes to play with others: '1-Up', 'Domination', and 'Own The Lot'. In 1-Up you have a given number of seconds to get a point total as a team and then the other team has to beat, or "1-Up", that score. In Domination the teams are going against each other trying to own as many spots that they can in a time limit. In Own The Lot there will be six to twelve things to do (eg; grind a ledge, fliptrick off a ramp) in a certain area that need to be completed by your team first to win.

The game will take place in the fictional city of Port Carverton, which embraces skateboarding, unlike the "skateboarding is a crime" mentality that permeated the second game. It is also a much more colorful and happier place than Skate 2's desaturated, grainy streets. Instead of security guards chasing you, they will instead point you to the next great spot, and pedestrians will cheer you on, rather than complain when you skate by them.[2]


In the developers diary, it is revealed that new characters as Joey Brezinsky, Dan Drehobl, Benny Fairax, Josh Kalis, Lizard King and Andrew Reynolds will be featured in the game. Also, new tricks will be introduced, like the darkslide, underflip and dropping into a ramp.

Developers recently hinted that the new game would include difficulty levels. Skate 3 is set in a new city called Port Carverton. Port Carverton will be made up of three districts, Downtown, the University and Industrial. Each district has it's own unique designs and monuments, Downtown is full of slick rigid ledges and rails while the University is full of banks and open areas. Industrial is the most unique, it is home of a huge quarry thats has over 10,000 hand designed bricks of stone. [3]

According to Mutato Muzika's website, Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo and Del the Funkee Homosapien are involved with Skate 3's soundtrack.
