Posted on June 30, 2020 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Easy Day Studios has announced that community created content will be available in the full launch of Skater XL. Players will be able to access a trio of maps made by community members: ‘Streets’ by Jean-Olive, ‘Hűdland Training Facility’ by Pactole, and ‘Grant Skate Park’ by Theo. Each map has been given visual enhancements by Easy Day’s art team in collaboration with the map creator.
‘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.
