Easy Day Studios announced that community-created content will be available in the full release of Skater XL.
Three new maps created by Skater XL modding community members will be the first modded content available on all platforms at release.
Each map has also been given visual enhancements by the studio’s art team in collaboration with the map creators.
The community-created maps available upon release are as follows, per the press release:
- 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: From map creator Jean Olive, this map is a mash up of street spots inspired by some of the best terrains 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.
- Hudland Training Facility by Pactole: An original creation by Pactole, Hudland 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.
Since the Early Access launch of Skater XL, the modding community has grown to 84,000 members, and thousands of maps, fake skate brands, and gear have been created.
PC players can now find Skater XL’s catalog of community-created mods at Mod.io. The platform allows mod creators to easily manage uploaded mod content and provides quick access when searching and downloading new content.
Originally slated for July 7, the game releases on July 28 digitally for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One. It will also be made available at retailers for PS4 and Xbox One.
