Easy Day Studios has unleashed community created mods in Skater XL, granting access to more than 250 pieces of new mod content, including maps, gear, decks, trucks, wheels, hair colours, tattoos, and skins, with more in the (half)pipeline. Mods in Skater XL are powered by mod.io, and available at “the push of a button” across all platforms.
"This is such a huge step towards what we always thought skateboarding games should become - an open, creative platform driven by the community," said Easy Day co-founder Dain Hedgpeth. “It’s been mind blowing seeing the volume and quality of content coming out of the Skater XL ecosystem. Now, players on all platforms will have this ever growing marketplace of maps, skins and fakeskate gear available and built right into the game experience.”
Skater XL now features an integrated cross-platform community mods browser, with an existing backlog of over 7,000 items, with new stuff to be added frequently. New versions of three community maps have also been ported for download, seeing the developer collaborating with the original creators to optimise them. These appear as ‘Optimized by Easy Day’ versions in the browser.
There's the ‘Riverfern’ map created by Taitjames, mashing up real-life skate spots found in Australia; the ‘Quebec Skate Plaza’ made by AlexLaskka, offering a accurate replica of the renowned skate park;, and ‘Applewood Park’ created by ROARTEX89, catering to all skating styles with huge stair sets, hubba ledges, techy manual pads, and more.
New official skate brands have also been added, including Illegal Civ, Uma Landsleds, Cariuma Footwear, MACBALIFE, and Am Grip. All of this is available in Skater XL now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Check it out in the 1.1 Update trailer below.
