Skate 3 is a skateboarding video game. It is the third installment in the Skate series and the sequel to 2009’s Skate 2. The development of this video game is done by EA Black Box and published by Electronic Arts. It was released around the World in May 2010 for PlayStation 3 as well as Xbox 360. This game can be played by a single player as well as multiple players at the same time. The game takes place in the fictional city of Port Carverton, which is known to appreciate skateboarding. The people don’t have a “skateboarding is a crime” mentality, as displayed in the second game. However, the location is a more colorful and friendlier place than Skate 2’s not so well maintained and grainy streets. The gameplay provides a similar feel to the first and second games and is connected to the first and second parts in many ways somehow.
Plot for the Skate 3
Sometime after Skate 2, the player character has proven that they are one of the best and now goes by the alias “The Legend.” They are attending the Port Carverton University. After they fail an attempt, they have to “Jump The Shark.” This is a Thrasher challenge at the stadium. Their next objective is to be a skateboarding mogul by making the team composed of skaters like them. Their goal is to sell over a million boards while persuing the same odd jobs around Port Carverton. When one million boards are sold, players would be able to wear new clothing styles for their skater, and the plot ends there. The plot seems quite interesting, and players would definitely enjoy it thoroughly.
Development of the game
It was revealed that characters such as Joey Brezinski, Dan Drehobl, Benny Fairfax, Josh Kalis, Lizard King, Andrew Reynolds, Chris Haslam, Terry Kennedy, Chris Cole, Jason Dill, and Rob Dyrdek are featured in the game. New tricks were introduced in the game like the darkslide, underflip, and dropping into a ramp or bowl to increase players’ interest and enhance the gameplay.
There are 46 licensed tracks in the soundtrack.
When the player is on “Interactive Mode,” the list of the songs on the “Music Player” begins to play like the player is in some challenge. When the player lefts the challenge, the music stops. The instrumental songs start to play again once the skater travels far enough from the spot they played in career mode. The game also features music by composer Dan Diaz.
