Skateboard Session has just added two new maps to step on, along with all the tools you'll need to film the perfect video part.
Fall last night, update 0.0.0.28 brings a lot of new content to the early access skater. The addition of headlines is two new maps: the first of which adds the most iconic places in New York with the famous Hubbas black i Dropthouse House, while the second allows you to explore new places under (and over) the Highline Bridge.
It may be a minute before I can really skate in New York, but Session’s faithful recreation of the best places in town is doing a good job in the meantime.
Existing maps have also been given a bit of love. The New York City stage of the game has been further expanded by the addition of a new location next to James Park, and has made locations that were previously unpopular. they could skate they could skate. Meanwhile, Philly is getting its own skate shop and has improved with optimizations and more skatable areas.
To get the best angle on these new and improved spaces, the developer creation has also completely revamped the playback editor with a "full backend review". New camera controls and the best editing tools (finally, undo and redo buttons!) Should make it easier than ever to post gnarly skates on the web.
The update also adds some nicer touches. A new "Skate Dice" mode allows you to create random challenges, the sky has been retouched with volumetric clouds, and there are some new historical challenges and bug fixes to complete the upgrade.
The session has been going through early access for a long time and I am having a great time during the last year. It’s a good time to get into skateboarding games and, thanks to some phenomenal independent shredders, things just seem to be getting better.
