Tony Hawk: Shred dated

Out in a few weeks.

Tony Hawk: Shred will be released in Europe on 29th October, Activision's announced.

The PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii game is the follow up to last year's abysmal Tony Hawk: Ride.

Hawk said critics had unfair preconceptions: "Most snarky critics had their minds set before ever seeing/playing the game. I'm proud of what we created; it's innovative, responsive & fun," he sniped.

Although Shred uses the infamous motion-sensing board – the one CEO Bobby Kotick loves - this time things are different: there's snowboarding.

Shred is intended for a younger audience, Activision's said. It has an arcade art style designed to entice "kids to get off the couch and into the action".

Activision's launched an interactive website "that gives players a head start on honing their over-the-top skate and snowboarding skills as they explore new game content, the latest news and much, much more!" Check it out here.
