Activision has announced details of the latest addition to the extensive Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 as it is unsurprisingly called will consist of very much the same elements that drove its predecessors to widespread success. Apart from the usual complement of colourful characters, an upgraded Skatepark Editor and the usual physics and graphical improvements, the game's mainstay, Career mode, has also seen an update. The new mode skips off the rails and attempts something fairly non-linear, with players completing challenges and fighting for medals in the order they desire. Another aspect of the game is the Go Pro feature, which will allow players to face off against real skaters to unlock the more difficult professional world. Tony Hawk aficionados will doubtless be wetting themselves at the prospect. Activision has coupled this announcement with the release of several screenshots of the game in action on Xbox.
