Aspyr Announces Tony Hawk 4 for Mac and PC
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Pursuing their announcement earlier this year regarding cross-platform publishing, Aspyr Media has made the staggering announcement that they will be publishing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 (THPS4) for both Mac and PC. The current successor in the hugely popular Tony Hawk skateboarding game series, THPS4 looks to bring even more tricks, goals, and skaters to gamers.
Some of the new features include the ability to skate on moving objects and skitch behind cars. The usual core of THPS-style gameplay will aslo be intact:
Players take on the role of legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk and 13 other athletes as they skate through enormous free roaming levels, choose from 190 progressively harder goals and build their skills to perform 14 of the greatest skateboarding stunts of all time. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 delivers the deepest and most challenging gameplay experience in the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series. The game's enhanced career mode allows players to earn respect and the chance to take on all new pro goals by conquering a skater-specific Pro Challenge based on each skater's personal history.As most gamers are aware, THPS4 is a major A-list title, and for Aspyr to gain publishing rights for both the Mac and PC versions is a major coup.
They note that demos for both platforms are currently in the works, and that a trailer will also be available sometime in the future. In the meantime, those interested in more information, including tentative system requirements, can find it at Aspyr's new THPS4 mini-site.
